# 1 Hide account name?

The <player>@<accountname> thing really murders immersion for me... is there anyway to turn it off?

If I had known my account name would be seen so readily in game, I probably would have picked a less lame one

I dislike it also, god thanks my Accountname is the same as my charactersname.

In my opinion a visible accountname is a security risk for your account in some way...

Aside from that... this just looks dumb.


SoandSo@someaccount says hello.


Gah, makes me cringe.

The thing is, your player 'Handle' doesn't have to be the same as your account name...

All you have to do is right-click in the bar next to the different chat tabs. Go to the chat options tab of the menu and deselect "show account names".

The @handlename is your forum name not your account name.

If you made your forum name the same as your account name contact customer service and have you’re name changed. Customer service will change the name for you since this is a security issue.
