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.
As described in the Developer Forum:
Gone are the days of being CoolRobloxFan43732 - now, you can simply be CoolRobloxFan!
Even better, all those pesky numbers attached to your Roblox username will no longer be visible if you choose to make a display name!
Display Names Requirements/Need to Know
Display names are 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).
