How To Change Your Username On Snapchat


On any social media app, the username is the most important thing. The username uniquely identifies you and this is how people add you to their circle. While creating an account, Snapchat also asks you to select a unique username. Most people don’t get the desired username because the one they like has already been taken. So, they have to settle with something else. What if you also don’t like the username you have on Snapchat and thinking to change it? In this article, I will talk about this.

Snapchat username is how you will be identified. This is the thing people will use to add you on Snapchat. Check the Snapshot below. This is my username shown in my profile. If you want to add me, you can use this username.

Now the primary question is how to change the Snapchat username.

The answer is ‘No, you cannot.’ Yes, it is not possible to change Snapchat username. The company claims that it is not possible to transfer account data to a new username. You can always change the Display name that appears on your profile.

So what if you want a new username?

You will have to delete your current Snapchat account and create a new account with a different username. So, you will lose your existing account, friends, and Snap score.

It is also important to note that you won’t be able to get back your old username. Snapchat doesn’t make available usernames associated with any old account even if the account no longer exists. So, delete an account only if you have no intention to use the older username again.
