How to Change Your Name on PC

That's everything you need to know about changing your name in Among Us. It's a pretty simple process, but people understandably get a bit tripped up when playing on mobile because the option to change names is not clear or something more obvious like Enter Name here. Hopefully, they end up changing that because it seems like a lot of people get a bit confused about it, when it should be pretty obvious how it is done.
