Change Your Name During a Meeting via the Desktop Client
Follow these steps to change your name while in a Zoom meeting. It is important to note that they work regardless of whether you created the meeting in question or not. Therefore, we will start from within a meeting.
Assuming that you are already in a meeting, the screen should look like this (note that we have turned the camera off): Click on the Participants button at the bottom of the meeting window.
A list of all participants in the meeting should appear on the right side of the window.
Hover with your mouse over your name then click Rename.
You should see a text box containing your current name. Delete it and write a new one. Click OK to confirm.

You can change your name during a meeting, even if you are on the mobile app. The steps are similar to the desktop client if the layout of the app is somewhat different due to the difference in screen shapes and sizes.
Here’s how to change your name during a meeting:
Like the desktop tutorial, we are starting from within a meeting. Your screen should look like this:
Tap on the Participants icon at the bottom of the screen. The app will take you to the Participant’s screen.
Find your name on the list and tap on it. Zoom will show you a pop up with your user name and the option to change it. Tap on the Rename option.
You will see the Enter a new screen name pop up appear on the screen. Enter a new screen name and tap the OK button to confirm the change.
