How do I Change my AOL Screen Name to a Pogo Screen Name?

This section is intended to help players who have AOL Screen Names, and who want to use their Screen Name in Pogo.

This also applies if you have an existing screen name on any of the following services: AOL, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) or Netscape AOL Instant Messenger. If you have any of these, you can use the same exact Screen Name as your Pogo Screen Name - it's already reserved for you.

Also, it is intended to help players who are having trouble with AOL and who want to use another browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari...).

Here's how to use a different browser while connected to AOL and Fix Pogo Screen Name:

  • Connect to the Internet.
  • Minimize the AOL window.
  • Open another web browser tab.
  • Go to using one of the other browsers.

From here, you will set up your games account so that it will work directly through the Pogo homepage.
Please note that you only need to do this the first time:

  • Click the 'Login' link at the very top, right-hand corner of the homepage.
  • Click the 'Create a New EA Member Account' link.
    We're not going to create a new account, but we need to get to this page.
  • Click on the 'Use my Existing Screen Name' link in the light blue box with the AOL logo in it.
  • Enter the Screen Name and AOL password for the account you normally play games with.
  • Click 'OK', and you'll be logged into site with your normal Screen Name.

To get to Pogo the first time:

  • Point your browser to and you'll automatically be logged in with your normal Screen Name.

To get to Pogo from now on:

  • Connect to AOL as normal.
  • Minimize the AOL window.
