If your own internet pseudonym is no longer suitable, it is time for a digital curtain change. Of course, you can also change your specified channel name on Twitch. But watch out: if you change your name without prior notice, your followers may not recognize you while streaming!

Change the username of the Twitch profile

Follow our step-by-step instructions , the quick start guide or the explanatory video ..

Note: Please note that you can only change your username every 60 days. In addition, your current user name will be blocked for 6 months. You should also keep in mind that you will now have to change your Twitch URL wherever you have specified or linked it, for example in profiles. This does not happen automatically.

1st step:

On the Twitch website, click your profile picture in the upper right corner . Then select " Settings " from the options.

Please note, however, that there are restrictions on changing the name.
