There are several details you need to keep in mind when setting up an account to play Free Fire Battlegrounds. If you are trying to register your nickname and get the error "nickname cannot be used" then you have missed certain essential steps. We have the solution and we will show you how to correctly create a nickname. If you're not inspired, use our nickname generator to pick a cool nickname!

How to create a nickname

There are three ways to log in to the game: using your Facebook, creating an account on Free Fire itself or using the Russian social network VK (VKontakte).

If you prefer not to link your Facebook account to Free Fire, try creating an in-game account by pressing the button in the image above.

If you create an account on Free Fire using any of the login means the initial menu will have to choose your name / nickname and your gender.

Choose a nickname

This is where many players try to create a nickname and fail, getting the error "nickname cannot be used". If you get this error, try simply trying another nickname . Remember that Free Fire is played by thousands of players and there may be people with the same idea as you. You can use upper or lower case letters, numbers, and even symbols such as%, $, and others. Your nickname must be at least 6 characters long (letters, digits, or numbers).

Always remember to use common sense when choosing your nickname. Imagine when you are playing with a squad and your nickname is unreadable or hard to say into the microphone. Therefore do not complicate.
  • Choose a nickname that has meaning to you;
  • Do not use profanity in Portuguese or English (or any other language);
  • Pick a name that stays in your ear, especially if you're going to stream or post it on YouTube;
  • Use your imagination.
If you get your imagination blocked, no problem. Use our nickname generator to find a very unique nickname for Free Fire. You can generate the nickname from your first and last name or completely random.  If you want a very unique name, make your nick with different letters and symbols in our generator!

How to give invisible space in nick

Everyone knows that you can't put space in the Free Fire nick just by pressing the corresponding button. Still, there is a simple trick you can do to get around this game impediment. All you have to do is copy an invisible code, which will be added to the nick . See how:
  • Copy the code that is in the parentheses, but not the parentheses: (?)
  • Stick it on a notepad on your phone or PC to keep it handy.
That done, go back to Free Fire. Go to the place where you can change your nickname . Where you want to put space, just paste the code you copied up there. Ready! Once you confirm the change, your nick will be in the desired space!

Change nickname

Once you have created your Free Fire account, you can change your nickname. Just press the yellow symbol in the upper left corner of the screen, near your nickname and image, and choose the new name.

Unfortunately, doing so costs 800 diamonds . Getting so many diamonds without using real money is not easy, so think about your nickname before choosing. Now that you've managed to create a radical nickname, you need to make it famous. For this you need to gain experience, make many kills and win many matches.
