How to choose a profile name

On BritainReviews, each user account requires a display name, which will accompany every review you publish. Your username isn’t set in stone; it can be altered whenever you wish. The choice of your username depends on whether you desire to be easily identifiable or prefer to retain a certain degree of anonymity.

What type of usernames are permitted?

You have the liberty to select any username you fancy. Many reviewers simply opt for their first name, while others prefer to use their full name. If anonymity is your preference, you may choose a username other than your own; however, it must be suitable and comply with our guidelines for reviewers. For instance, your username must remain completely impersonal and must not contain any hateful or negative connotations.

Altering your username

All users have the freedom to modify their username at any time. Here’s the process: log in to our website, click on your profile image at the top right and navigate to “Account details”. Here, you can change your username. Just ensure you save the changes when you’re finished.


While choosing a username, it is crucial to prioritise your online privacy and security. Consider it akin to safeguarding your personal domain. Avoid sharing sensitive details such as your full name to protect yourself from potential unauthorised access or misuse of your data. Using an alias or merely a part of your name can aid in preserving your identity.

Creating a Welcoming Environment for Everyone

When selecting your username, it is essential to keep things amicable and respectful. Choose a name that reflects professionalism and trustworthiness, demonstrating that you are a valuable member of the community. Avoid employing any language or content that could distress or offend others. By adhering to these guidelines, you contribute to ensuring that everyone feels welcomed and appreciated in our online space.
