You can change your Snapchat username once a year, but you can change your Display Name at any time.
Learn how to change your Display Name.
Make your Display Name clear, legible and representative of yourself.
We recommend using either your first name, last name, stage name or company name. Remember that your Display Name must follow our Community Guidelines.
Avoid these things in your Display Name:
- More than 2 words
- Non-word characters or emoji, such as “$” or “%”
- Any words that are against our Community Guidelines
- Any words that are promotional in nature
Display Names with any of these characteristics can be confusing to Snapchatters and may affect your exposure on Snapchat.
