[Tutorial] How to change Nickname in the Mi Account

Hey Mi Fans,
How are you ? Hope you are good. 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.

Mi Community
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.

1) Log in and go to your profile page “ME

2) Tap on your profile
3) Tap on the pencil at the top right corner of your screen

4) Tap on your Nickname

Enter your new Nickname - you have only this chance!

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.

Mi Account
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.

1) Open your phone settings
2) Scroll down and tap on Mi Account

3) Log in or sign up if you haven’t done it yet
4) Tap on Name
5) Tap on Personal Info

6) Tap on Name
7) Enter your new username and tap OK

That's it.
