changing the DEFAULT name


When I got a new phone and Zoomed into a meeting, I put in my name for the first time, didn't notice I misspelled it  and when it said would you like this to be your default name I said now every single time i log in the misspelled name shows up. If I don't notice it, then it sits there looking quite weird. It has zz in front of it because that is the code for not being called on in that specific meeting so obviously I don't want zz-hilaru showing up every time I log in to all the other meetings. It's supposed to be hilary, not hilaru.

I don't seem to be able to change this DEFAULT name...

Here is another option that might work for you: \

  1. Open the Zoom mobile app. 
  2. Tap the Join button. 
  3. Adjust your name there. 
  4. Join a meeting (any meeting, even your just need to finish the join process). 
    With that done, you can leave the meeting and it should have saved your name as the new default. 
    Start or join a meeting again to confirm the changes are saved. 

Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
