  • You can browse the number of SoundClouds while using the SoundCloud web browser as well as mobile platforms.
  • In ambos casos, to change the number of SoundCloud, you will have to open the “Edit profile” page.
  • If you use the SoundCloud website to change your name, you can also change your profile URL.

One of the rules of good personal branding is that you need the same username on all your social media accounts.

So if you’re an artist with an aging SoundCloud page – the music hosting platform has been around since 2008 – your account might be using an outdated username. If so, and you’re thinking of getting back into music, you’ll want to change it.

Luckily, your SoundCloud display name can be changed using your computer or mobile app.

Also note that if you change your SoundCloud name on a web browser, rather than the mobile app, you can also change your profile URL.

How to Change Your SoundCloud Name and Website Account URL

1. Log in to your account on the SoundCloud website. 

2. Tap the profile picture next to your username in the upper right corner, then click “Profile”.

Your display name and profile URL

If other users are looking for you on SoundCloud, make it as easy as possible to locate your profile by making your display name and profile URL clear, correct, and concise.

 

How can I change my name or URL?

You may change your display name and profile URL by visiting your profile page through a web browser on your computer and clicking the edit button under your profile header. The username can also be changed via mobile (URL changes are not possible on mobile).   670240You can choose the display name you want. Be sure to display it as you would anywhere else, and feel free to include spaces and capitals. To edit your profile URL, click the small pen icon that appears next to your URL. Please note that you can only use numbers, lowercase letters, underscores or hyphens.

 

Note:  You can only use numbers, lowercase letters, underscores, or hyphens in your URL. Changing your profile URL is not available through our mobile apps (you can only change your username through the app).  

What happens when you change your display name or profile URL?

Your new profile URL and display name will be immediately searchable in SoundCloud, but may not appear immediately in Google Search. It depends on Google refreshing its cache, and SoundCloud cannot influence that. If you change your profile URL, it will affect any links and embedded players you may have previously posted. Embedded players released before August 2010 will be broken. However, embedded players published after this time will continue to play your tracks, but if the listener clicks on the SoundCloud page, they will be directed to an empty page. We do not offer redirect services when you change your profile URL.
