I used Google to Signup and its used the last name I have there. I need to update it but cannot seem to find the settings do so. Contact Info, Profile Settings, and My Profile all do not have the field to edit my name. Any help with the same is much appreciated. 


Thank you!

Hi Andrea, thanks for your response!


Wasn't able to access those settings to change my profile name till after I had created a password (used Gmail to signup).

I've been able to raise a change request which is 'under review' and would take 48 hours.

I've also been prompted to earn an ID-verified Badge by uploading a government-issued ID and sending visual verification too.


Do I wait till the name has changed before I upload my ID, as the last names would be different?
