You know what’s nice about the modern internet? How easy it is to change your username on things. I made my first email address when I was 10, and I’ve been using it so long it’s become too much trouble to change it. Now every time I have to tell it to someone I feel physical discomfort. Thankfully, in games like Roblox, you can call yourself whatever you want, so you don’t have to live with an incredibly bad decision. Here’s how to change your Roblox display name.
The Roblox devs have actually been tinkering with the ability to change display names for a few months now. They implemented the feature back in February, but then it was almost immediately taken back down because people were abusing it. Last week, though, the feature was brought back on a trial basis to see if they could make it work without letting jerks take advantage of it.
How to Change Your Roblox Display Name
With this new update, changing your display name is a snap. Just visit your account details page, click settings, and click the little pencil box next to “Display Name.” You can make the name anything you want. Whatever you set the name to is what will appear over your character’s head, in chat, and in player lists. Bear in mind, your username will be unchanged, and you’ll still need it to log into your account.
You can change your display name as many times as you want, and it won’t even cost you any Robux, nor do you require any kind of special subscriptions. There are, however, a few rules:
- The length of the name must be between 3 and 20 characters.
- You can only change your name once every seven days.
- The chosen name will need to be verified by Roblox’s filters, so no cussing.
Besides that, your name can be anything. It doesn’t even have to be unique like your username; two players can have the same display name if they so choose.
