What is PUBG Mobile Player ID and IGN
In PUBG Mobile every player has a unique identification number or a unique name, similar to any unique government ID that you might have in real life. In PUBG Mobile this player ID and IGN can never be the same for two different players. Thus, any player in the game can be found using his or her unique player ID or IGN. You must know that the PUBG Mobile IGN is limited to 14 characters and the Player ID can be between 9-12 numbers long. Anyone can choose their IGN, but the player ID is automatically assigned to a player and cannot be changed ever.

Limitations of PUBG Mobile Player ID and IGN
PUBG Mobile Player ID and IGN are both very useful in finding any player in the game. But both have limitations of their own. Many times a player is using various fancy symbols or characters which makes it difficult for anyone to find that player by his/her name. Here the player ID plays an important role. Instead of figuring out a way to enter those fancy characters, you can simply enter the 10 digit code to easily find the player. But on the other hand, if the IGN of the player you are looking for is written in English and is easy to remember then you can easily find their profile just by entering their IGN.
The Player ID and IGN are the only two ways to find a player in PUBG Mobile. There is no other method and if you want to find someone’s profile then you must be needing either of these. As we have discussed, both of these have their perks and cons. Where the IGN might be easier to remember if written in simple alphabets, the player ID on the other hand saves your day finding and arranging the fancy letters which are used in the IGN of many players. In the end, the choice is yours, and you can use what seems more comfortable for you.
