Soon, players can change their Roblox display names within the Account Details page. As detailed by the Roblox Staff in a Developer Forum, it will be as easy as navigating to your account settings and tweaking your display name to your preference. However, this new feature isn’t available yet, so we’re breaking down everything we know.

Display Names vs. Usernames – What’s the Difference?

A username is the unique name all players assign themselves when first signing up for Roblox. Usernames are what players use to log in to the platform. Once created, usernames cost 1,000 Robux to change. Going forward, a display name is the name that will appear in chat, player lists, or above your in-game character’s head. Essentially, display names are your social name, the name that you prefer all players to recognize as your Roblox character. Consider display names as a personal expression for your online persona.

Okay… What’s the catch? How much will Display Names cost?

Display names will be totally free! They will not cost any Robux, however, there are still specific guidelines that display names must follow. Display names must:
  • Be between 3-20 characters.
  • Only be changed once every 7 days.
  • Must be verified by Roblox filters (aka display names must be appropriate for all ages).
