Adding your Display Name on Snapchat is a great way to help friends recognize you — because let's face it, usernames aren't always so easy to understand 😜
Your username can only be changed once a year, but you can change your Display Name whenever you like!
Display Name character count is 30 (including spaces).
To create or change your Display Name…
- Tap ⚙️ in My Profile to open Settings
- Tap 'Name' under the 'My Account' section
- Enter your Display Name and tap 'Save'
Snapchatters will continue to see the Display Name you chose when they first added you, but new friends should see your updated Display Name.
Please Note: Snapchatters who have you in their phonebook may see the name they've saved you as in their phone.
⚠️ Important: If you're a creator, make sure your Display Name follows our best practice guidelines.
