You Can Finally Change Your Snapchat Username: Here’s How

Snapchat has finally given in after years of users requesting this feature.

Snapchat now allows users to change one of the most critical aspects of their social media profiles: their usernames.

Continue reading to know everything you need to know about changing your Snapchat username.

Snapchat Is Letting You Change Your Username

Snapchat now lets you change your username. You could previously only change your Snapchat display name, but not your username.

If you wanted a different Snapchat username, your only option was to delete your existing account and create a new one.

However, this is no longer the case. All Snapchat users on both the iOS and Android apps will be able to change their usernames beginning February 23, 2022.

What You Should Know Before Changing Your Snapchat Username

Because you can only change your Snapchat username once a year, choose carefully. You may never be able to use your old Snapchat username again if you modify it.

You will also be unable to select a username previously used by another Snapchat user. This also means you can’t choose a username that is registered but inactive.

Finally, changing your username does not affect your Snapchat account’s Contacts, Snap Code, Snap Score, or Memories.

How to Change Your Snapchat Username

It’s easy to change your Snapchat username. Follow these easy steps:

  • Open the app for Snapchat on your phone.
  • In the top-left corner of the screen, tap your Bitmoji.
  • Then, in the top-right corner, tap the settings icon.
  • Tap Username under My Account.
  • Now, in the text box, type your desired username.
  • If the username you want is available, tap the blue Next button.

That’s all there is to it; your new username for the next year has been saved.

Snapchat Gives Users What They Want
