Zoom is an online meeting and conference software used by many people around the world for personal and office work. Many companies use Zoom for their online meeting solution unless they are G Suite or Office 365 customers because they provide their own solutions for online meetings. And most of the time, zoom profiles made by companies have companies’ registration numbers or employee ID as names which users can change later in Zoom settings.
Consider you are a Zoom user, and the company created a Zoom profile for you on your behalf. Now, you want to personalize the account by adding a picture or changing your username. Well, you can do this yourself and if you’re wondering how you’ve come to the right place. Because in this article, we are going to explain how you can change your name in Zoom on both desktop and mobile apps.
