How to change game center name (nickname) on Mac

In today’s you will find out how to change your name (nickname) on a Mac computer.

I will be using my Mac Mini for this tutorial, but the process will be the same for MacBook and iMac users.

I think that due to the popularity of Mac devices with the new M1 chip, more and more people will move to Mac and many of them will try to play games.

This happened to me. For a few years, I was using both Mac and Windows but as soon as Mac got better, I decided to move to Mac for good.

I’m not a serious gamer, but I like to play from time to time and recently subscribed to Apple Arcade (BTW, you will get 3-month free trial if you buy a new Apple device).

This is when I discovered my strange Game centre name 😧 I think it was generated from my name, but it looked very strange, so I’ve decided to change it. This is how you can do it.
