Dear Mi Fans,
Welcome to the UK Community. Hope you are all doing well!
I can see many of you still using your Mi ID number instead of a nice nickname, which is fine but doesn’t look very cool unless you are secret agents! So… Let’s change it!
This thread is a guide on how to change nickname on Mi Community and Mi Account for new users or those who don’t know how to do it. I hope you’ll find this helpful.
Any queries, feel free to leave a comment below.
When you sign up to the Mi Community, the system will automatically assign your Mi Account ID number as your username, however, at your first login from your computer/laptop a window will pop-up, asking you to enter a new nickname to replace that ugly number. if you skipped this process don’t worry and follow the steps below through the Mi Community App.
If you don’t have it installed already, download the Mi Community App on your phone.
Once you have set your username in, it will be fixed and it won’t be possible to change it for a new one. Not even Administrator will have access to change it, so make sure to choose it wisely. Alternatively, you can create another account with your desired username but you will lose your medals and points.
Your Nickname and Name are different, you can change your Name as many times as you like.
By default, your Mi Account will have a number assigned which is your Mi Account ID. You can enter your Mi Account Name following these simple steps. Note that, unlike the Mi Community Nickname, you can change your Mi Account Name more than once.
What's your nickname?
