If you don’t want other players to be able to see your real name, tap the Public Profile On/Off button to turn this feature off.

3If you want your friends to be able to send you requests for playing games via e-mail, check to see if the e-mail address listed in this dialog is the one you want them to use.

If not, tap Add Another Email and enter another e-mail address.

4In the Nickname field, enter the handle you want to be known by when playing games.

Tap Done when you’re finished with the settings. You return to the Game Center home screen, already signed in to your account with information displayed about friends, games, and gaming achievements (all at zero initially.)

The two options of Take Photo or Choose Photo appear.

6Tap Choose Photo to select a photo from your camera roll or a photo library.

Tap the library you want to use, and scroll to locate the photo.

You can use your finger to move the photo around or scale it, and then tap Use. The photo now appears on your Game Center home screen.
