Change the Name of a Twilio Account

Users with high-level access roles can change the name of a Twilio account via Console. This guide explains who has access to this setting, and how to make the change.

Notice: The Account Settings page in Console can only be accessed by users with the Owner or Administrator role. Users with other roles will not be able to access this page, and will instead receive an HTTP 403 error. For help changing user access levels, see Add, Remove, or Modify Users with Your Twilio Account.
