You can change your Snapchat username once a year.
At this time, you can only change your username to one that has not been previously owned by anyone else, including yourself. This means that once you change your username, you won’t be able to revert the change, so choose wisely!
To change your username…
- Tap ⚙️ in My Profile to open Settings
- Tap ‘Username’ under the ‘My Account’ section
- Tap ‘Change Username’
- Enter your new username, then tap ‘Next’
- Enter your password to confirm your username change, then tap ‘Confirm’
If you’re not sure what your username is, tap on your Profile icon at the top of the screen — your username is shown under your display name.
Please Note: You can still find others on Snapchat by searching their Display Name or their latest username.
Display Name versus Username
Your Display Name is how you appear on Snapchat — it's different from your username! You can customize your Display Name whenever you like!
