Snapchat Username

One of the missing features in Snapchat is the ability to change usernames after using them for a while. Other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitch allow their users to change their usernames without any restrictions. But, as of February 23, 2022, Snapchat joins the list. You can change your Snapchat username. The feature has been added to the platform in the latest update. Update the Snapchat app on your Android or iPhone from the Play Store or App Store to change the username.

Things to Consider Before Changing Snapchat Username

  • You can change your Snapchat username once a year. If you change the username by mistake, you have to keep that for a year.
  • For now, you can change the username to the one that has not been used before by anyone. With this, if you change your username, you can’t use your old username.
  • Changing your username won’t change your display name or any other personal information.
