Update your Name or Avatar

Who can use this feature?

Your Name and Avatar make up your identity in Figma.

  • We use your Name and Avatar to identify you in any Teams, Projects or Organizations you are a part of.
  • When you view a File or Prototype, we add your Avatar to the toolbar. This allows everyone to see who is currently accessing the File.
  • We include your Name on your Multiplayer Cursor. This allows others to see your actions in the Canvas.

You can update both your Name and your Avatar in your Account Settings.
