How to Change Snapchat Username – There are a lot of features that make using Snapchat cool. From the ability to record and send short cool videos of yourself to friends or the auto vanishing message trick not to forget how cool bitmoji can be.
Changing the Snapchat username is not possible due to security reasons according to the social media company. What you can do although is to change the display name of your Snapchat account.
How to Change Snapchat Display Username
Since it’s not possible to change your Snapchat username totally, you could try changing your display name. As the word “display” implies, this new name would be displayed to your friends and the Snapchat community.
Unless a friend decides to investigate. This could be by viewing your profile during a conversation or by choosing your display name when they use the search tab.
- Open the Snapchat app and sign in to your account.
- Tap on your profile icon at the upper left corner of your screen.
- On your profile page, at the upper right corner, tap on the gear icon.
- Select Name and enter a new display name in the necessary tab.
- Hit the “Save” button.
There is another way and trust me, you won’t like it especially if you’ve worked hard in trying to build your current Snapchat account.
Create a New Snapchat Account
There is only one main way of doing this so as to make sure you do not start from scratch with your Snapchat account again. Sign in to your Snapchat account, navigate to settings in your profile page and select the “log out” option keeping in mind your sign-in details.
Create another account with a different email, password, other required details, and your preferred username by tapping on the “Sign Up” button. After opening the account, you can choose to “Add Friends” from your contacts thus enabling Snapchat to access your contact list.
Then sign in to your old Snapchat account and take note of all Snapchat friends you would like to add to your new account by selecting them and prompting their usernames to come up. Sign in again to your new account and proceed to add them up. When you are done delete the old Snapchat account.
