As we all know, Zoom is one of the main applications that exist today to make video conferences with people, and it is generally used to make business meetings or to give virtual classes.
However, the names of the users may appear as they are registered at the beginning of the account, and in many occasions these names or this information are not the real ones, so many people look for a way to change the name of the user so that when they connect to the meeting they appear with their real name or with the nickname they want to use.
