All avatars and assets (objects, sounds, textures, etc) have unique UUIDs that can never be changed.

However, depending on the reason why you're asking this question, parts of UUIDs can be identical.

For example:

  • Avatar A: "12345678-abcd-0000-0000-000000000000"
  • Avatar B: "12345678-abcd-1111-1111-111111111111"

So, if you're using only parts of a key (either a full section, or random characters), you might find two avatars (or anything else) that produce an identical result. The chances are low, but theoretically possible.

You cant change the uuid of your avatar yourself. Only LL can change the uuid of any item directly. So no you cant change your uuid to get off of someones block/mute list or off of some group/sims ban list. And unfortunately it also means if someone uses one of those login notifiers to track you, you cant stop that either.

Everything is tied to your UUID.  It's like your Social Security Number, if you live in the U.S.A.  Although it is theoretically possible for Linden Lab to change it if you were to go into the SL equivalent of a Witness Protection program, I have never heard of any such thing and can't image why they would agree to it.  Changing your UUID would mess up everything from your inventory to your Marketplace and LindeX records, all of which are keyed to your UUID as a unique identifier.  If you need a totally new identity, your best bet is to open a brand new account and then avoid having anything to do with former friends, groups, and favorite clubs.
