How can I change my username?

If you would like to change your username but keep your current account, here's how!

Hover your cursor over your avatar in the left navigation menu and select Settings from the drop down menu that appears.

In the next menu, you will see your profile on the right side. Next to your username, there will be an option to 'change' which you can click on to change your username:

Please choose carefully as members can only change their username once :)

NOTE: You will not be able to change your username if you are in Live Chess in another window, if you are unable to change your username, close all other tabs and try again!


Please note that usernames are a minimum of 3 characters and a maximum of 20 and you cannot have any spaces or dots in the name, nor any special characters like ^ & * ! " £ $ % ( ) + = ? / \ | 

It can be either one whole word, or use a dash (-) or underscore (_) as a separator.

keywords: username, user name, user-name, change
