Question about Changing Username For Your PSN Account?

8 posts in this topic

     Hello everyone!  I had a quick question regarding changing my PSN ID.  I was wondering what people's experience was when doing it, as it warns you before changing it that it may affect other stats; such as trophies (my main concern) and such.  Is it mostly safe to do so?  Just wanted some encouragement that I won't lose all of my progress after starting with 7 platinums out of 11 games played lol.  Love you all.

I don’t think you will lose progress if it’s he first time, just make sure the name you pick will be good that u won’t change it again, after changing it 3 to 4 times you can lose your save files

I have a friend who did it. So far, no problem at all, and he's been gaming since PS3. I've read that some leaderboards may cause problems due to rank progress and mismatch, but other than that, it seems to be safe (mostly).

No problems at all.  Worse case is you have to change it back (free of charge the first time).

You only have PS4 games. You will not be affected at all.

If it's a fairly new account and only played PS4 games it should be fine, the issue is if you back to PS3 games but that doesn't seem to be an issue for you so you're safe to change it.
