How do I change the name of my device?

Your device has a name that is visible when you connect to other devices via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi networks. The default name of your device will normally be the name of your model e.g. Galaxy Tab S3 or Galaxy S8+

You can change the name by going into Settings, choosing About device or About tablet, and then tapping Device name.
