How to Change Your Username or Display Name in Roblox?



Roblox is one of the most popular online games, particularly among young people. It allows users to make their own games in addition to playing them. It’s a platform for both enjoyment and creation.

When creating information for others, your name is important. You can change your display name at any time if you joined up for Roblox with a less-than-ideal username. This function was first introduced in February 2021, however it was shortly removed as users began abusing it. It’s back now, and you can use it to your advantage.

How to Change Your Roblox Username?

Roblox is extremely user-friendly, as evidenced by its account settings page. The user can easily view and modify the account’s essential features. This article will show you how to modify your username and display name.

  1. Open Roblox and log in.
  2. Choose Settings from the Settings icon in the top-right corner.
  3. Next to your username, click the pencil icon.
  4. To change your username, you must spend 1,000 Robox, the game’s digital money. Enter your selected new username and password for your account.
  5. Choose Buy.
  6. If the change is successful, a new prompt appears with the words “Successfully changed username.” Choose Okay.

You can change your username as many times as you wish, but each change will cost you 1,000 Robux. Under the Account Settings option, you’ll find a list of all of your prior usernames. Changing your display name, on the other hand, is free.

How to Change Your Roblox Display Name?

The other players in the game will see you by your display name. Once every seven days, you can alter your name for free. This allows users to experiment with a variety of personalities until they find the one that best suits them. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Open Roblox and log in.
  2. Choose Settings from the Settings icon in the top-right corner.
  3. Next to your display name, click the pencil symbol.
  4. Select Save after entering your new display name.

The previous display name will be replaced by your new one. While your username must be unique, you can share your display name with another user.

Restrictions on Changing Your Name

Although Roblox allows you to change your username at any time, there are a few limitations to be aware of.

  1. You are unable to select a username that is already in use by another account.
  2. You can’t utilize an additional account to swap usernames.
  3. You won’t get a discount if you make a minor adjustment to your username, such as capitalization.
  4. You can’t change your name to conceal from another person because other gamers can still see your past usernames.
  5. Throughout the modifications, the date on which your account was created will remain the same.

Although you can’t hide your past usernames from other users, Roblox does store them for you. You may easily switch back to a prior username from the menu, but remember that it will cost you 1,000 Robux regardless.



Usernames must also satisfy both human and machine screening to ensure that they are appropriate. While automated filters will identify apparent profanity, human reviewers will take notice of anyone who tries to get around them. It is possible that you will be banned if you do so.

How to Purchase Robux?

In the universe of Roblox, Robux is the digital currency. It’s used to pay for username changes, avatar accessories, and in-game enhancements, among other things. This currency can be purchased in a variety of ways in-game.

  1. Open Roblox and log in.
  2. Select the Robux tab from the drop-down menu.
  3. You can buy Robux outright or subscribe to a monthly subscription for a better deal. Choose one of the choices below.
  4. Choose from a variety of payment options, including credit card, debit card, Paypal, Roblox Gift Card, and more.

Continue is the option.

To complete the purchase, follow the on-screen prompts to enter your credit card or Paypal information and complete the transaction. If you try to alter your username but don’t have enough Robux to complete the transaction, the menu will prompt you to purchase the required quantity of Robux.

Roblox is a game that is suitable for children; in fact, according to some polls, more than half of all children under the age of 16 had played the game in the previous year. The game has the potential to overtake Minecraft and become a worldwide success, so it’s worth checking out.
