Roblox implemented the ability to change your Display Name on the platform, which allows you to perhaps use a name that wasn’t available or is different from the username you have. The other great thing about the display name is that it is free to change, but you will be limited by a certain amount of days before you can change it again. If you want to learn how you can edit your display name, we’ll show you exactly what you need to do in this guide.

Display Name Guide
To change your display name in Roblox, you will need to head to the Account Info area under Settings. Once you’ve arrived, you can press the edit icon next to display name. Edit the name to something new and press the save button to confirm your changes.
If you are on mobile, you can get to your Settings by tapping on the circle with three dots at the bottom of the screen in the app. Scroll down and you will find the Settings option. In a web browser, you just need to click on the Settings gear at the top right of the page and then click on the Settings link. On mobile you will then need to tap on the Account Info option, whereas on desktop computer you will land there immediately.
Once you’ve arrived on the Account Info page, you will see both your Display Name and Username. These are two different things. Your display name is what people will generally see when they chat with you in and out of game. The username is your more specific ID and is unique. If someone were to look for you on Roblox, you would want to tell them your username and not your display name.
Hit the edit button that lines up with Display Name, and a popup window will show up. You can change your display name to whatever you want as long as it doesn’t get flagged by Roblox’s auto-moderation. It also can’t be any longer than 20 characters. Keep in mind, once you change the name, you won’t be able to change it again for 7 days. Make sure it’s exactly how you want it before hitting the save button!
Keep in mind that not all Roblox games use your display name. This is a relatively new feature, so older games might still display your user name when showing you on the leaderboards, in chat, or over your avatar’s head.
That’s everything you need to know about how to change your display name in Roblox. Be sure to check out the Roblox section of our website for more information on everything you can do on the platform!
