Can you change your Neopets username? No, I’m afraid once an account is created it will be called that. If you really don’t like your username, you can create another account with a better name.
Currently there are no name change features. If you’re not happy with your NeoPet’s name, the only option is to give it a personal nickname.
*Please note that we do not normally allow changes to the display name once you have decided on one.

And yes, while it’s now old enough to drink on both sides of the pond, Neopets is still going strong today and even released a mobile version. Since 2014 it has been operated by the US developer JumpStart Games, which in turn is owned by the Chinese online gaming publisher NetDragon.
This is the only way Neopets conducts its main activities, with most of the website content being Flash based. In 2020, it was confirmed that Adobe would end support for the platform and shut it down completely on December 31, 2020.
However, while users have left Neopia, their accounts have not. Even if an account is officially closed, it still exists – it just can’t be viewed. Thus, over time, thousands of unused accounts accumulate on the Neopets servers and take up space.
Neopets, a website that allows children to care for “virtual pets,” has disclosed a wide range of sensitive information online, including credentials used to access company databases, employee emails, and even requiring repositories containing the proprietary code for the website, according to information shared with The Security Ledger.
Jellyneo is a Neopets fansite that features news, game guides, helpful articles and tons of Neopets goodies.
