One of the most widely used video meeting apps available right now is Zoom. It is adored by users for its adaptability, dependability, and simplicity. It is used by family and friends to talk and exchange stories. It is used by businesses to facilitate team meetings and employee training. The list continues.
However, there are numerous situations in which you might want to modify your Zoom login. It’s possible that you’re using someone else’s computer and need your name to take their place. You might not want your personalised “friends” name to be seen at a business meeting. If you simply included the first letter of your last name, you might even be required to display your whole name. So, how can your Zoom name be changed? Below is the solution.
Regardless of the platform, changing your Zoom name is really easy to do and shouldn’t take more than a minute or two.
Changing Your Zoom Name before a Meeting
Before entering any session, there are three ways to modify your Zoom name (depending on the programme). Utilizing a desktop client, a mobile app, or the website are the available choices.
How to Modify Your Zoom Name Before a Meeting Using the Desktop App
You can modify your username if you’re using the Zoom desktop client. However, it will point you toward a web browser to finish things out. This is how:
1. Tap on the Settings cog in the top right corner of the Zoom desktop client after it is open.
2. In the menu on the left, choose Profile.
3. Then select Edit My Profile.
4. Your regular web browser will open in a new window. Refresh the Zoom Settings page to leave. After that, select Edit next to your name.
5. After making your Display Name edit, click Save.
To update your username if you aren’t able to use a web browser for some reason, follow these instructions:
1. Click on your profile icon in the Zoom window’s upper right corner after starting the desktop client.
2. Select Sign Out in the bottom-most section of the dropdown menu that opens. Remember to close the app.
3. Reopen the Zoom desktop application.
4. To join a meeting, choose it. The Join Meeting screen will be displayed by Zoom.
5. Simply enter the meeting ID or personal link name in the top text box and your selected user name (not your login username) in the bottom text box to complete the process.
6.To start the session, click the Join button.
You are ready once you have finished the aforementioned stages. Choose your username carefully because it will be shown in the meeting. Whatever you desire it to be is possible.

Overall, no matter what device is used or when you use it, changing your name in Zoom is a piece of cake. Zoom has a nice feature that allows you to alter your displayed name both before and during the conference by following the instructions above.
Additionally, you can choose a new name for yourself once the session starts; all it takes is a few clicks or taps and a little inspiration. Unless the administrator prohibits it, you can change the username at any moment to reflect your fun and crazy nature or your professionalism.
Can I modify another person’s Zoom username?
If you are the meeting administrator, you should be able to rename another user by selecting More next to their name on the Participants tab at the bottom of the meeting. Enter the new username and save it when the option comes.
In Zoom, I am unable to modify my username. What is going on?
What you are allowed to do and not do during a meeting is mostly under the control of the meeting administrator. If you are unable to alter your username, the administrator’s settings are probably to blame.
In the Zoom web browser client’s Settings, if you are the meeting’s host, you can allow participants to modify their names. Find the Allow participants to modify their name setting by scrolling through the Meeting section. Turn the switch on to activate the function.
Can I change the title of my job on Zoom?
You can edit your title in Zoom if you’ve recently been promoted or if you simply want to let everyone know what your role is.
