Change "device Name"

Recommended Posts

Sorry, if i duplicate some topics, but can't find similar problem in search.

 

I need change user and device name, but can't do it in web ui, also i try to find btsync.conf on my mac, but no result.

May be somebody can help?

 

Btw. i guess its bug/issues - i really doesn't have options to change this param into web ui or preferences.

I'm gonna assume you're referring to the desktop apps? In which case, you'll find this setting via Options (cog icon) -> Preferences -> Device Name -> Edit

Can't find it, maybe i can't edit it while syncing, am i right?

You can change device name, because you haven't created a fingerprint yet. Once you create a fingerprint (for example by using the new v1.4 link sharing features) you shouldn't also be able to change device name.

 

@lugiank

As far as I know the only way to change device name is to completly remove sync (or at least settings) and set it up from scratch, because the device name is used to build your fingerprint and that should be unique.

 

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
