Customizing your Anchor profile URL

You can update the URL for your podcast (e.g. anchor.fm/maya) to customize it with your own preferred branding.

Note: You need to publish at least one episode before you can change your URL.

To change your URL:

Mobile apps:

  1. From the Anchor app, go to Profile.
  2. Tap the '...' in the upper right and Settings.
  3. Scroll down to Your custom URL and type in your preferred URL.
  4. Hit Save in the upper right corner once you're done making changes.
    Note: You'll see an error if your preferred URL is already taken.

Desktop:

  1. Log in at anchor.fm.
  2. Go to your Settings page.
  3. Scroll down to Your custom URL and type in your preferred URL.
  4. Hit Save in the upper right corner once you're done making changes.
    Note: You'll see an error if your preferred URL is already taken.

URL impersonation

Impersonating someone else on Anchor is against our terms of service, and the same goes for custom URLs. We reserve the right to return a URL to its rightful owner.

If someone is using your name or brand name for their custom URL and you'd like to claim it for your own podcast, let us know via the Message us button.
