How do I change my username?

★★★★ Newbie

I lost my simpsons tapped out like it seems everyone else has. It changed my username.  I keep hearing of people changing their usernames but I cant find anywhere to do it. Someone please help me. I hope I can get my Springfield back. I was on level 22.

You can change the origin ID linked to your email address by logging in to using the email address and password. I have to say I'm reluctant to change mine given the number of reports off people finding themselves temporarily back at level 1 because they are no longer logged into origin.


if someone has changed your origin ID however, they must have had your login and password, so you may wish to check your other apps are secure...

I just changed my name, how long do I have to wait for it to realize that I'm level 26 and not level 2? It keeps asking if the level 2 is mine and I can't get on to mine.
