Display names in Roblox are an exciting new feature that is going to allow players to use whatever name they want for free! Since usernames are becoming harder and harder to come by due to the popularity of the platform, you will now be able to use something that might have been taken already!

It should be known that you can only change the name every seven days. Your username will remain important if you want friend to message you. It will be accessed by using the @ symbol in front of it. The display name will only change how it is displayed in game, chat, and on player lists.

Changing Your Display Name

To change your Display Name in Roblox, you will first need access to changing it. This feature is being rolled out slowly, so you might not have the ability to change it right now. To check if it’s available, head over to your Settings Page in Roblox. Look just below Account Info and see if you find Display Name, which would be right above Username. If you see that label, click on the icon to the right of it, and you will get a popup allowing you to change your name. Select whichever display name you would like, and it will be changed!

If you don’t see that on your profile page, then unfortunately you will not be able to change your Display Name at this time. This feature is going to be rolling out slowly according to the official post. It looks like it will take at least a few months before everyone has this ability, so you might need to wait for a good while.

Display Name FAQ

How much does it cost to change your Display Name in Roblox?

It is absolutely free! Unlike changing your username, which would cost you a whopping 975 Robux. You will be able to change it without paying anything, but you will have to wait for seven days to change it once you have made your first selection.

What about impersonation of other players?

This is a fair concern and could be a pretty big problem. Other players could imitate well-known YouTubers and content creators. They could also attempt to impersonate staff. We will have to see if Roblox has anything in mind for this sort of thing, but this is a pretty big problem that could lead to younger players getting scammed.

Can I literally use any possible name as a Display Name?

No, you won’t be able to use any possible name. Roblox is still going to apply a filter, and anything that is offensive or contains swearing will not be allowed. How far will the filter go to prevent inappropriate language? Well, we’ll have to wait and see!
