How to get a blank name - Among Us

Become even stealthier by having an invisible, blank, or no name in Among Us.


Having a blank name in Among Us makes your character a little bit more difficult to see. For Impostors, this could mean easier kills while for Crewmates, it means maybe being overlooked by the killers. Whatever your reasons may be, getting an invisible name is easy.

A recent update to Among Us has made it so that having an entirely blank or invisible name gives the error message "Server refused username". Unfortunately, you cannot have a completely blank name anymore. However, you can have an almost invisible name by using a similar trick, this time, with a little dot.

Blank or invisible name - Dot name

While you can no longer have a blank name in Among Us, you can have a dot as your name, which is still pretty sneaky.

As mentioned above, the old blank name trick will no longer work when playing online. Players on PC will still be limited to proper characters, but players on mobile can have a dot as their name, which is almost as good as having no name, a blank name, or turning your name invisible. To get a dot as your name, you will need to copy-paste the special Unicode character below:

  1. Copy the dot between the quotation marks “ㆍ”
  2. Select the name field in Local or Online
  3. Tap the field to get the option to “Paste”
  4. Paste the above Unicode character. Note: Do not paste the quotation marks

Much like before, don't copy the quotation marks. Once you paste the dot in, you will find that it's almost as good as having no name. You can also find the symbol on Compart. Having a dot name mightn't be as good as no name, but at least it's something!

Blank name for Local play

By pasting in the right Unicode character, you can have a blank name in Among Us.

Thankfully, the blank name in Among Us still appears to work for Local games.

  1. Copy the blank space between the quotation marks “ㅤ”
  2. Select the name field in Local or Online
  3. Tap the field to get the option to “Paste”
  4. Paste the above Unicode character. Note: Do not paste the quotation marks

After pasting the blank space, you should see the cursor move slightly along, indicating that there is a character there. You can now tap “Done” and launch into a game. You will find that your little spaceman has no name!

Pasting the Unicode character will show a little space before the cursor line.

If you accidentally copy-paste the quotation marks, just delete them or just copy the Unicode character again. This character can also be found on Compart. There are other sites where it can be found, though they appear to be unsecure.

Looking for more help in Among Us? Here's a list of several handy guides:

Outside of being slightly more difficult to see and identify, there’s not a whole lot of point to having a blank name (or no name) in Among Us. Players can still recognize you by your color or by saying “It’s the one with an invisible name”. However, having a blank name could be useful for those trying to take screenshots or make videos.

Removing your name, or having a blank name, in Among Us is a sneaky bit of trickery. It’s currently only possible on mobile, so PC players will need to stick with normal letters and numbers. There’s a good chance this will get patched out, so use it while you can! Check out the Shacknews Among Us page for more helpful tips.
