Sometimes your Zoom account automatically uses an existing username. Make sure your screen name is your First Name (always) and Last Name (or at least your last initial). NOT 123456, or your email, or child’s name, etc.

When you are logged into Zoom, you will see your user name, as it appears to the group, in your profile icon/box (usually the bottom left corner):

After clicking “OK”, your username, as it appears to everyone, will automatically update.
