    This would be really good to have. Most of my name changes were me just changing the casing of my in game name (uppercase to lowercase back and forth)

    Awesome idea! When my parents bought me Minecraft and tried using my real life name. Since, it wasn't available, they used frustating numbers and I hated it! Afterwards, I noticed name change available and changed my name.

    Why isn't this a thing yet? Third-party apps should not be able to view/share your past usernames. You changed your username for a reason.

    I 100% agree. I used to make really terrible usernames which people use to MOCK me. It's annoying and I WISH this was a feature. I really wish that at one point this will be added.

    I think this a good idea as if you don't want someone to see your old username that you didn't like you should also making the info public makes it worse as someone people are really insecure about their old names and that's why they changed their name in the first place

    I absolutely agree, third party apps should not be able to look into past name history, people such as streamers, youtubers, or content creators or even a normal person's privacy should be respected with the changes of names and not dug into by it. NameMC doesn't even have the ability to hide your profile once you claim it either and it kinda takes your privacy away since you changed your name for a reason but no longer have the option to be private.

    Good idea that must be reviewed by the devs.
    Explanations has no-need for me.

    This would be amazing to have.

    My account got hacked some years ago. And as things are now, I just can't get rid of usernames of that hacker. They forever haunt my history. Man, I would love to get rid of it.
