How to Change Your Display Name

You have the option to change your display name - the name other users see on your profile. Your reason might be because another user is using a similar name or you just feel like the new name will bring you more luck. In any case, it is a simple matter of changing your profile settings. Please follow these steps:

1. Click your profile picture at the upper right corner of any page.

2. Select Profile.

3. Click Edit Profile.

4. You can change your Display Name, Professional Headline and/or Description by clicking the edit button (pencil icon). In this case, click the edit button to the right of your Display Name.

5. Type the name you want to display in your account (25 characters maximum).

Remember that your original username will remain. Here, you are just changing what's displayed on your profile.

6. Click Save.
