In w3w.Community you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Hey @Neil Callingham-Carter12

It's actually not possible to choose your own words. All the 3 word addresses are randomly allocated and completely fixed, meaning that they can be used offline, which would not be possible if people were able to make changes all the time 😅

We have considered, and tested, a system where people could buy words of their own choosing. But these name changes would not be available to offline users which then undermines the idea of what3words as a universal system that never changes! 🙌

I hope this answers your question :)
