No, Rohan, anybody can choose to display first name and last name initial on their public profile. They don't have to be paid members.

 

Alka, go to Find Work > Profile and click on your name. On the pop up window, please select "Show only my first name and last name initial"

Thank you Valeria. I probably would have left Upwork if I was unable to do this.

Please cancel my account for me. I have looked everywhere and there is no way for me to do it.

Hi Cheyanne,

 

It shows that you haven't completed your profile yet. Please complete your profile then you will be able to see the option to change the Display name. Once completed, go to Find Work > Profile and click on your name. On the pop up window, please select "Show only my first name and last name initial"

Hi Priyanto,

 

We've made a recent change which disabled this option, since freelancers don't have access to edit the way their name is displayed on their profile. Please check this announcement for more details.

I like it that my Upwork profile picture is tied to my account in the platform when I google my first name and initial of my last name.  I tried to do the experiment as I was curious and I was surprised that there are many Juvy Anns in the planet and they are as pretty as I hahaha!  Needless to say that I appreciate this security feature for us platform users.

I am a freelancer and I would like to display just the first initial of my last name. How can I do that?
