How to change your Battlelog user name

It wasn’t long ago that once you’d picked a user name for Battlelog then you were stuck with it. Thankfully, EA have listened and made it possible. Sadly, how it’s done is not obvious.

There are 2 ways to do it – the Origin website or the Origin desktop program.

  1. Sign into the website and then head to the “My Account: About Me” page. Click on the edit option next to the Basic Information section. You will be asked a security question and then shown, amongst other things, your Origin user name. You can now change this.
  2. Alternatively, download the Origin program (available for Windows and Mac) and when launched and you’re signed in, click on “Account” and then “Account and Privacy”. Now you can click the edit option in the Basic Information section as above.

Relatively recent convert to Battlefield but now hooked. Not the best aim or sharpest reflexes but good team player.

Hates people complaining unnecessarily and believes you should always offer solutions – yes, I’m looking at all the Battlefield 4 haters.

General IT bod during the day and all-round geek at all other times.
