About username changes

You can change your username to another username that is not currently in use. If your desired username is not available, you will see information about whether you can request the username to be released when you type in the desired username.

If the username is not eligible for release and you do not have a trademark for the username, you can choose another username or keep your current username. Coderons Support will not release a username that is not available for you.

After changing your username, your old username will be available for anyone else to claim. Most references to your repositories under the old username will automatically change to the new username. However, some links to your profile will not automatically be redirected.

You can change your username by following these steps:

1. Click on your profile picture at the top right hand corner of the page.
2. Click on Settings from the menu.
3. Select Profile.
4. Click on change user name.
5. Enter new user name and click on I understand let’s change my username.
