Snapchat allows you to change your username
Snapchat now allows you to change your username. You could change the name of your Snapchat account but not your username.
Snapchat allows you to change your username. You can delete your entire account and create a new one.
However, this is no longer true. All Snapchat users, Android and iOS, will be able to change their usernames starting February 23rd, 2022.
Here are some things you should know before changing your Snapchat username
Snapchat can only allow you to change your username once per year. So think carefully about what name you choose. You may not be able to use the old Snapchat username again after you have changed it.
Also, you won’t have the ability to choose a username that was used in the past by Snapchat users. This also means you won’t be able to choose a username that is registered but not active.
Last but not least, changing your username will not affect any other information on your Snapchat accounts such as your Contacts and Snap Code, Snap Score, Snap Score, or Memories.
How to change your Snapchat username
It is easy to change your Snapchat username. Follow these simple steps:
- Open Snapchat on your smartphone.
