Likely, you didn't care about your display name when you signed up for Fortnite. As you started to play the game regularly, you thought of some ideas for your display name. So here is how you can change your display name. Changing your display name in Fortnite is a very simple process.


It is common for players to change their display names after creating an account in some games. This is because they want a more memorable and personal display name. Changing your display name may not be permitted in some games, so you may need to create a new account. However, in Fortnite, you can change your display name once every two weeks.

  • Go to the Epic Games website.

  • Click on the blue edit button.
  • Write a new name, accept the terms, and press "Save."


(You've successfully updated your display name on your Epic Games account.)


  • Once you have completed all these steps, go back to your game. Your new display name will be on the board.
