Can I change my nickname?

Unfortunately, we cannot support this request yet, for technical reasons. The nickname gets propagated through a number of settings and files and it's hard to change automatically once it's set. The closest solution is to stop your HDA, delete your account and reinstall your HDA under a new account.

We stated the following in the signup form (admittedly not everyone realizes that): The username determines your free Dynamic DNS and it's the basis for the nickname of your Amahi HDA (used for the free VPN). It will also be used for your subdomain in Amahi Sync™ cloud storage (if you use it).
