Discord is a platform where you can quickly and easily stay in contact with your friends, teammates, family members, and coworkers.
Lots of folks on Discord are interested in utilizing various nicknames, gamer tags, or fictitious names. You may desire to personalize your nickname for each server in order to be more easily identifiable.
You probably wouldn’t want to use your gamer tag on a Discord server with your coworkers.
Here is a simple way to modify your nickname on Discord:
- Open Discord, enter any server and right-click your name on the right side of the screen.
- Select Change Nickname.
- Enter anything you want and click Save.
That’s all you need to do. You will now appear as this new nickname to everyone on the server. Remember, the new nickname is exclusive to the server where you set it. If you want to use it on another server, you will need to repeat the process there.
Reminder: Few servers disable the option for users to modify their nickname.
Alternatively, you could change your account’s username altogether. This account username is how you will appear to other Discord users by default if you don’t have a server nickname set.
Here’s how to do that:
- Open User Settings (small cogwheel in the bottom-left), then the My Account tab.
- Click Edit on your Username and input anything you want.
That’s all you need to know about how to change your Discord nickname!
If you wish to alter other individuals’ pseudonyms, you will require admin-level privileges, precisely the Administer Nicknames permission. Having this authorization, you will be capable of modifying anyone’s pseudonym on the server.
