Hi, I have been freelancing for around 4 years now on Upwork but I've been doubting if I should change my account to my full name. I used a nickname for the 4 previous years and I was just wondering if changing it and along with my bank account details would any way affect the terms of service I agreed on. 


Thanks in advance to those who will answer!

Sonner rather than later, Upwork will ask you to verify thyself.


To verify you need an ID and other docs.

Your name on those docs should match the name you use on Upwork.

So, you must change to your real name before you can verify (which Upwork will ask you to do soon anyways).
