Change User Name

Summary

This article provides instructions on how to change the user name for your online BendBroadband account.

BendBroadband allows you to change an Online Account User Name to something that’s easier to remember (like a personal email address). Any user can change their own user name. Account Administrators can also change User Names for other users on the account.

To Change Your Own User Name:

  1. Log in to your BendBroadband Online Account.
  2. In the Manage Account menu, choose Change User Name.
Change username
  1. If a mailbox is NOT associated with this user name, you’ll be able to change your user name on the next screen:
Change user name email address
  1. Enter your email address, then click Change User Name.
  2. A security code will be sent to the email address that you’ve designated as your user name. Once you receive the security code, enter it in the box and click continue.
Enter security code

If the option to enter a personal email address is greyed out, that means there is a BendBroadband mailbox associated with the current user name. You’ll either have to remove the mailbox that’s associated with that user name or add an additional user to your account rather than change the user name.

Change User Name for the Another User

**Only users with Account Administrator rights can change user names for other users. These notifications of account changes are NOT sent to the users on your account. Therefore, you may want to communicate the changes you are making to the specific users.

If you need additional assistance, please contact Technical Support at 541-382-5551.

  1. Log into My Account, click Manage Users in the menu to see all users on your account.
  1. On the Manage Users screen, scroll down and click the Edit button next to the user name that you want to change.
Current users
  1. Under Account Settings, click the circle next to No next to “Create a mailbox for this user”.
Account Settings
  1. Click Remove Mailbox on the confirmation screen.
Remove Mailbox
  1. Enter a different BendBroadband user name or a custom (personal) email address in the Email Address field. Then click Save Changes.
Enter email address

If you’re entering a custom (personal) email address, a security code will be sent to the email address that you’ve entered. So, if you are changing the user name on behalf of another user, you’ll need access to that email address that you enter. Or, have the user change their username themselves.

Once you receive the security code, enter it in the box and click continue.

Enter security code
