Creating an account in Among Us gives players some additional quality of life features:

  • Creating an account will allow players to report specific players for inappropriate conduct.
  • Accounts are required to change your display name.
  • Creating an account gives you access to free chat. Without it, you can only use Quick Chat.

The account system will also be updated in the future to support a friends list. As of this writing, you can not link different platforms to one account.
