Here's how to get an invisible name in 'Among Us.'

If you're looking to have an invisible name or no name at all in Among Us, you'll have to be playing on a mobile device first. Make sure you jump online on mobile and go from there. If you're on PC, you'll find that this method won't work for you. You need to copy a special character to make everything work, but don't worry. It's easy. First, copy this space between quotation marks while in the app: “ㅤ”. That's the most important part of this entire thing. Otherwise, it won't work at all. 

Then, head to the name field in either local or online play. Paste the character you copied and pasted (it will look like nothing) into the name field without quotation marks. You will paste the character, which is essentially invisible. No one will be able to see what you've named yourself. When you've done this, tap "done," and start a new game. As long as you have this character in your name field, you will have zero text in that field. It's a pretty ingenious move, after all.

This subtle change won't give you any sort of strict advantage over everyone else, but it will keep you from being a bit more memorable. You're harder to see and identify, but when it comes right down to it, if someone marks you "Asus," then that's what you'll likely stay. And in the end, you can always be called "the one with a blank name" or something to that effect, so no one is truly immune or safe by using this method. Still, it's a fun way to change things up at the very least. 

That's all there is to it! Now get out there and start trying to figure out who the imposter is. It's a neverending struggle, after all. Might as well get a leg up on it.
