Typo in User ID

Hello Upwork community. As shameful as it is, I have made a typo when signing up for Upwork. My user ID has a typo in it. Only one letter that should be changed from an M to an N. I know that it is impossible for users to change their user IDs, but is it possible for someone from Upwork to change the user ID for such a minor typo?

Hi Theo,


While profile names can be changed, unfortunately, user IDs can't be edited neither by Upwork users themselves nor Upwork team.

Theo, you have to be at least 18 years old to work at Upwork.

Thank you for the quick reply.


Follow-up question then, is my User ID visible to anyone other than myself?

Theo, most likely no human being from Upwork actually read your profile, and whatever software is in place to screen new profiles did not catch your age, unlikely as that may seem.

clients don't see your user ID. Don't worry about this.
