To change your profile name, simply head to Settings and the Edit profile tab, then enter your new chosen account name in the Name box. This name will appear on the site when you post a comment, so make sure you’re not sharing any personal information that you’re uncomfortable with others seeing.
Once you've launched a project from your Kickstarter account, the associated profile display name can no longer be edited. This is to maintain transparency across projects. If you have additional context to provide in support of a change in your profile name, please reach out and our team will gladly take a look.
Our policies prevent us from facilitating a name change in all circumstances, but certain scenarios (gender transition, marriage, etc) supersede this policy. If this is something you would like to request, please submit the request by filling out the “Submit a ticket” form, and following the steps below.
- Enter your Kickstarter account email address (Note: this must be the same email address used on the account tied to your Kickstarter project)
- My question / comment is about: Changing my Profile/Verified Name
- Copy and paste the link of your profile’s URL
- Respond to the following:
a) Are you the verified identity tied to the project(s) on this account?
b) What are you requesting to change? (Profile Name, Verified Name, Both)
c) Why are you requesting a profile/verified name change?
d) What would you like your profile/verified name changed to?
Once the ticket is submitted a member of our Trust & Safety team will review the details of your request.
