    I think I signed in with Google or something, and now I'm stuck with this weird/spammy looking username. Any help super appreciated, thanks!

    Why didn't you create an account instead? You could have chosen your username in the process.

    Please bump up your post count elsewhere or provide something helpful regarding my question and the official Unity sign-in process I used.

    You might have to contact support or make new account. Shouldn't be an issue unless you're packing a paid unity license.

    Yeah. You would have helped yourself by creating an account the usual way and this useless thread wouldn't exist. You're lucky that you can change your username.

    Heya,
    It should update if you log out, and then log in again!

    Thanks, Anrdreas! OP, please let us know if it isn't updating after you've re-logged.

    A gentle reminder to take a look at our Unity Developer Network Rules, we're all peers. There is no need to be rude to your peers.

    My account was created the old fashioned way and I was able to change mine to a different name and back using the link provided by @FMark92. Like mentioned above you just need to change it, log off, log back on, and it'll be different.
