Everything you need to know about accounts in Among Us
Among Us is finally getting support for accounts, and here's how it will work.
Among Us is getting its biggest update yet on March 31. The new update will bring the much awaited map ‘The Airship' and it will also add support for accounts. Innersloth has now published a blog explaining how accounts in Among Us will work.
Accounts have been introduced for two key reasons - reporting and moderation. Innersloth plans on adding a friend system and also the ability to transfer your cosmetics between devices. This will happen at a later stage though.
Once accounts are available in Among Us, you will be able to report someone in the game if they're acting inappropriately. This can include “inappropriate names, inappropriate chat, cheating/hacking, and harassment/misconduct.” Reported accounts may face temporary bans or permanent in some cases.
Innersloth isn't allowing linking of multiple accounts yet. So if you're playing through Steam it will stay only on Steam. But the developers have confirmed that it will be coming soon. Account creation will also be required to access two features - free chat and display names. If you don't create an account you will have access only to Quick Chat. You will also need an account to freely change your display name. If you don't then you'll have to settle for random names. Another update is that usernames in Among Us will not be exclusive so two or more players can have the same username.
Innersloth has also highlighted rules for minors. Players who are under the minimum age of digital consent will have to get a parent or guardian's permission to create an account. There's also a guest mode where minors can play without having an account.
