One of the most significant components of any social media profile is the username. People will be able to recognise you, engage with you, and relate to your brand if you do this. What happens, however, if you want to alter or replace your Snapchat username? The simple answer is that until you cancel your account and create a new one, you will not be able to change your username.
Regardless, you can modify your public display name at any time. It’s important not to mix the two. This tutorial will walk you through altering your username and adjusting its colour, fonts, and overall appearance.
On iOS and Android, here’s how to change your Snapchat display name.
You establish a Snapchat account and fill in your username, as previously explained, but you can’t modify it until you cancel your account. Your display name, on the other hand, is something you may alter and change as much as you want.
This action allows you to make something distinctively recognised so that other users can recognise you. On a mobile device, here’s how to update your Snapchat display name:
- Open the Snapchat app on your phone.
- Click on the “Settings” wheel icon under “My Profile.”
- To remove, update, or create a new display name, go to “Name.”
- After you’ve typed your new display name, select “Save,” and it will appear on your profile for everyone to see. If they have your contact saved under your old name, they will need to change it and save it under your new name.
Is it necessary to delete your Snapchat account in order to alter username?
The only option to alter your username is to deactivate your account and start a new one due to user security concerns. You cannot transmit your account data, Snapstreaks, or Memories once you delete your account. You’ll have to start over with your new account.
To secure all Snaps and account information, most users resolve the username issue by changing their Snapchat Display Name while preserving their original username. If you still want to cancel your Snapchat account, go to your profile page and select deactivate your account from the drop-down menu. Snapchat marks your account as inactive for 30 days before permanently deleting it.
Everyone has had the experience of regretting a username they chose when they were younger that is now a touch embarrassing. While you won’t be able to modify your Snapchat username, you will be able to change your display name. Have you changed your Snapchat display name before? Do you have any tips, tricks, or questions?
