Child changing name in Fortnite

A new Fortnite season calls for some changes. Mix it up with new player skins, weapons, or a new game identity. You get to call the shots.

At Asurion, our experts have the tech know-how to help with any problem—including updating your Fortnite display name. Here’s our guide to updating your Epic Games Fortnite name.

How to change your Epic Games display name

Your Epic Games name is your identity in Fortnite—it’s what everyone sees when you log on—and changing it is straightforward.

How to change your Fortnite name on a computer

When gaming from a Nintendo Switch®, Windows™, or Mac® computer, you’ll need to change your display name online. Note: you won’t be able to change your display name again for two weeks after changing it. Here’s how:

  1. On your desktop, go to the Epic Games website and log in.
  2. Click on your username in the top right corner > Account.
  3. In the General tab, find your current display name and click the Edit button (blue pencil icon) beside it
  4. Type your new Fortnite name into the area within the new window. Then, click Confirm.

How to change your Fortnite name on console

For gamers using other consoles, it's important to note that your Fortnite display names are linked to your console platform, not your Epic Games account. Any changes you’d like to make to your display name have to be made through your console.
