Renaming urls for HTML files
SarahFair1 (1)


The url for html, css, Javascript shows your user name. Is there a way to change this? I have students that don't want their names shown online. Their usernames were generated when signing in with google and can't be changed. It shows their last name. What can I do about this?

You can change your username by emailing [email protected]!

You cant change your username, but you can change your name by going to your profile and clicking edit.

@PYer But if they send an email to [email protected], they can change their username if they signed in with Google. This was an issue and they resolved this by allowing users who signed in with Google to change their username since it was a bug that they weren't able to confirm their username before signing up.

(PS: I'm pretty sure @Kognise had removed the username from a repl url:, but I'm not sure how he managed to do it)

@Vandesm14 Nah he just made a mobile repl account, and made a repl called mobile. Then you can access the repl with Pro tip!
