Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to change your name on Rainbow Six Siege, I think it may interest you to know more about where this is displayed.

Well, there are not a few users who want to make a change related to their nickname within the Ubisoft title, since the latter is also shown publicly to the other players with whom you end up in the game.

Furthermore, the username is used to add friends and, therefore, it is not uncommon for players to regret a choice made in the past, perhaps when they were a little younger.

In any case, the procedure for changing your nickname linked to Rainbow Six Siege may not be exactly obvious, since there is no special option present directly within the game, but you have to proceed in another way.

The goal of this tutorial is therefore to follow you step by step in changing the aforementioned name, so that other players and your friends can recognize you within Rainbow Six Siege with a nickname that best suits your current tastes.

How to change your name on Rainbow Six Siege PC

The version of Rainbow Six Siege that usually creates more doubts for players regarding the name change is the PC version . In fact, in this case it is necessary to go through a browser for web browsing , since it is necessary to change the nickname of the Uplay account used when you downloaded Rainbow Six Siege.

To proceed, then connect to the official Ubisoft portal , press the Login button , present at the top right, type your account e-mail address and password and click the LOGIN button, in order to log in with your Uplay profile.

Then, click on the account icon located at the top right and click on the Account Information item . In this way, another browser tab will appear on the screen from which you can modify your profile data. You may be prompted to log in to your account again, just to be safe.

Once you have successfully entered the Ubisoft portal, press on the Account Information box and click on the pencil icon, present next to the username linked to your Uplay profile.

Now, type in the new nickname following the instructions provided by the site. In particular, the username must be between 3 and 15 characters long and start with a letter. Also, you can only use letters , numbers , underscore , dash top and point.

For the rest, it is necessary to choose a nickname that has not already been taken by someone else and obviously you have to avoid those words that could offend someone. For completeness of information, you should know that it is possible to change the username only once every 30 days.

In short, I advise you to think carefully about the chosen nickname, before clicking on the Change button and making the change effective. Once this is done, you can exit the Ubisoft site and launch Rainbow Six Siege on your computer.

To check that everything has been done correctly, just click on the account icon at the top right and take a look at the username displayed. If you have followed the procedure properly, you should see that the change is already active. Of course, you can try joining the game to see if everything is correct there as well.

How to change your name on Rainbow Six Siege for consoles

How do you say? Do you usually play Rainbow Six Siege on consoles? Well, in this case it is necessary to go and act on the nickname related to the account of the platform from which you are playing.

For example, on PlayStation 4 you need to change your PSN account name , while on Xbox One you need to change your Xbox Live profile username. What you have to do, therefore, is to follow the classic procedure related to the console you are using.

The procedures are not complicated at all: just log in with your account and change the nickname. However, if you need precise directions, I recommend that you refer to my tutorials on how to change your name on PS4 and how to change your name on Xbox One.

In these guides I have explained step by step how to make the changes you need. Obviously, even in this case, as I have already explained in the chapter on Rainbow Six Siege for PC , to verify that the change has been made correctly, simply start the game and enter the game.
