Hi, I changed my name once  for a zoom meeting and I thought I changed it to something else through settings, but whenever I join a meeting for class the old username pops up. Any help appreciated, thanks!

Hi @maracuyeahright thank you for your post here on the Zoom Community! You can edit your profile in the Zoom web portal and that will impact how your name comes up when you join meetings. Just go to to sign in, then you will see Profile in the upper left. Click on Profile on the left, then you will see all your Profile information. Click "Edit" on the far right to make changes. Save, then you should be good to go! 


I would also sign out of the Zoom client and back in to make sure the changes take effect.

Hi @jeremyjustin 

I have followed all the steps that you have given via changing the name in the website and logged in and out. but for some reason my name is still reflecting as "ipad" when i join a meeting. Is there a particular step when i use an Ipad? Please advise and thank you in advance for your answer!
