How to add special characters to Among Us username
You may have come across players with weird symbols and characters in their usernames. If you’re playing on a PC, your device has a Character Map with all these characters in it. For those on mobile, a quick online search will bring up some great websites for generating usernames with non-standard symbols in them. The problem is that the game won’t allow you to change your username if it contains these characters. So, how do these players get it to work?
Don’t worry, it’s not hard, though you should be prepared to do a bit of digging through folders.
Open up this folder path: C:\Users\[Your PC Username]\AppData\LocalLow\Innsersloth\Among Us OR Type %appdata% in Windows Explorer, then open the AppData folder, followed by the LocalLow folder, then the InnerSloth folder, then the Among Us folder.
Find the playerPrefs file and open it in Notepad.
Look for your current username and replace it with the new username with the special characters in it (remember: Among Us has a 10-character limit for usernames).
Download a text editor app
Open your Android/Data/Files/innsersloth.com.spacemafia folder
Open the playerPrefs file with your text editor
Replace your current username with whatever name you want (10-character limit)
