How to Fix The Genshin Impact Signature Bug – Editing Your Nickname


Many players are facing the Nickname and Signature Bug in Genshin Impact which doesn’t allow you to change the nickname. This is pretty annoying and has left many users flustered. You can also add nicknames for friends from your friend list but even that seems to have taken a pause. So, let’s find out how to fix the Nickname issue in Genshin Impact.

How to Fix The Genshin Impact Nickname Signature Bug

There is no fix for the Nickname Signature Bug as of now. The option to change the name card and give a nickname seems to have disappeared completely. You can try by shutting down the game completely and reopening it. If you are a PC user you can even try to run the game as an Administrator.

However, all these are not confirmed fixes for the same. miHoYo seems to be aware of this issue and there should be an update for the same too.

This is a fan favourite feature so it is doubtful the devs would willingly remove this user feature. There is a large, new update scheduled for June 9 so we should expect this issue to be sorted.

Famous Genshin Impact Leaker Sukuna has tweeted, ‘Regarding the issue of you not being able to change your nickname or signature, the options will be added back in the upcoming days, earliest might be during the weekend or by next week.’

He also mentioned, ‘Doubt Mihoyo would remove the features completely lol so do not freak out.’

Our thoughts are that this is a relatively minor issue and the devs will just add a fix for it in the June 9 update.


Moreover, Genshin Impact leaker @SsukunaaA explained on Twitter that miHoYo is already aware of the situation and plans to fix the issue soon, possibly “by next week”:

Personally speaking, changing your Nickname and Signature is a feature that has always been into the game, so I don’t believe it’d suddenly be removed. miHoYo should probably put out a bug notice in-game soon, as many players must have sent feedback and reported the issue already. Lastly, many players are speculating the feature will be back after a certain anniversary on June 4.

Genshin Impact is launching its Version 1.6, Midsummer Island Adventure, on June 9. The open-world JRPG is available on PC, PS4, PS5, iOS, and Android, with a Switch version in development. However, it’s reportedly experiencing development issues.

This is everything you need to know about how to fix the Signature and Nickname bug in Genshin Impact.
