HOW TO CHANGE FORTNITE/PSN ID

How to change your PSN Online ID?

There are two options open to you: either from your web browser or on your console itself. Sony told us what to do below.

Change PSN IS on Fortnite and PlayStation 4:

  • Step 1: From your PS4 go to [Settings].
  • Step 2: Select [Account Management] > [Account Information] > [Profile] > [Online ID].
  • Step 3: Enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.
  • Step 4: Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change.

How to change PSN ID (Web browser):

  • Step 1: Sign in to your account on the PlayStation Network and select PSN Profile in the menu.
  • Step 2: Select the Edit button that’s next to your Online ID.
  • Step 3: Enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.
  • Step 4: Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change.

Sony has added a neat little feature to the change so that friends and fans wont be confused by your sudden change in identity. You can opt to display your old ID next to your current one for 30 days, so everyone will know who you are.

You can also revert the change and go back to your old ID, if for some reason you regret the change.
