What's up with those silly autogenerated nicknames that we can't change?

Re: Nickname does not change

Hi @mrwhitegoespro


Your nickname is assigned when your GoPro account is created.

You can change your nickname once per hour.

Login to your account on

Under your name at the top of the page is a drop-down menu. In that menu, select "Settings". From there, you should see your account info, and be able to change your nickname.


Let us know how it goes.

Re: Nickname does not change

thanks @aragon1006 ,


apparently, using a special character like a "." is not supported?

It wasn't applying the change before because that's exactly where i was trying to change it and then i tried it without the dot
