Change Username?

Highlighted
Explorer

Hi, I'm trying to change my username (blame my fat fingers when registering!)- searching, I saw a guide from Dec 2018 showing how to do this, but there no longer seems to be an option 😞 It's annoying, as you cant create a new account as it's linked to your Samsung Account! Does anyone know if you can change your username, and if so, how?

 

Many Thanks!

@ColonelPanicky: If you want to change your Community username then simply tap on your profile picture in the top right corner (next to search field), select 'My Settings' and you will see the 'Change Login' option. Hope this helps.

@AndrewL I cannot see this option, I can see: 

'Edit your Samsung Account Basic Profile' but when I click on the link it always takes me to a page with an error message- is this where you mean? Thank you!

Apologies @ColonelPanicky, it appears that only moderators have the ability to amend a username. If you send me a private message with your preferred name I can get this done for you.

Hi, I did the same thing by entering the wrong description in the user name field late one night, can anyone help me to change this please?

 

Many thanks.

Hi @Moisty007 

 

If you can send a private message through to me with your preferred user name, I'll get this changed for you.

Hi I've been asking the same thing, you can change anything but user name. If you find out how to please let me know it's so frustrating.
