Does SoloLearn support usernames?

I am new to SoloLearn and so far I love it. Is there a way to set a username instead of using my real name? for privacy

https://youtu.be/9H2jhigE2Tw Skip to 3:18 Just happened to find this. Its entertainment so the legitimacy is questionable. Seems like using fake "real human" names is illegal, not nicknames...

Heard it was illegal too, but officers dont have time to just go through person by person just for something silly like that. Pewdiepie, jackspedaisuki, markiplier, etc. wouldve been sued or imprisoned ages ago (they got $$)

And speaking for mods, we recommend you change your real name anyways for the sake of privacy and protection ;)

... Howdy. You are legally allowed to change your own name to anything you want (well, not literally anything, but you get the idea). Hence, to claim that someone is using a "fake name", would only be valid for that point of time. Can't see how this rule of law would be enforced without sealing all the loopholes, let alone on the internet. A brief search online did not seem to affirm the claim that it is illegal to use fake names online. At most, it is illegal to attempt fraud via fake names, but that's not the case here.

<removed> You don’t have to. Look at 「HAPPY TO HELP」 who answered your question. His name for sure isn’t happy to help. 😂

<removed> I’ve never heard of anything being illegal. 🤷‍♂️ I always use Lord Xaj as my name on most sites.

the laws surrounding it are very strange. Anyway, I think I can. Especially, if a mod says so.

Anyway, if SoloLearn does allow me to change my name into something more like a brand name as long as I am not committing fraud, I don't think I will get into trouble. Especially when miilions of other people already do it. And I am not even sure such laws exist in India. thank u then. Strange Name Incoming soon!

Pewdiepie, Jacksepticye ( or whatever it was ), Markiplier, Jelly, Kwebellkop, MarkOV etc. are channel names not their real names. there are thousands of channels obviously not real names.
