There are three ways on how to change your display name in a Zoom Meeting.

A) Profile Page
  1. Go to and sign in.
  2. Click on Profile.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. First type in your First Name and Last Name.
  5. Click Save Changes.
  6. Then you will see your Display Name change accordingly.
  7. This will not be applicable if you have joined a previous Zoom session and have joined a Zoom meeting previously and have selected the “Remember my name for future meetings” option.
