Times change, and so do people. What an expression of your personality was a few years ago may not be true today. So, what can you do if you want to update your Snapchat username? Is it possible to change the username that others see when they see your profile?
Instead of wasting time trying to figure it out in the app, we'll give you a scoop on how to change your username on Snapchat.
How to change your name on Snapchat
To change your name to something more attractive, open the app and tap your profile icon. Then tap your current name, which is located directly below your Snapcode. A box appears with the option to change your name. Type your new name and press Save to complete.
What happens if you change your snap name on Snapchat
Now that your name has been changed, your friends will see it when you send them snaps, when they look at your story and when new friends look for you. No one receives a notification when you change your name and there is no time limit for how often you can make a change, unlike other social media apps. So feel free to change your identity as often as you want.
If you really want to change your username
If you want to change your username, there is only one way to do this. You must delete your account and start all over again. Be warned, if you follow this route, your current username will be thrown away forever. No one, not even you, will ever be able to use it. Not to mention the fact that you have to call everyone a friend again and that all your saved snaps have disappeared. If you are 100% sure you want to continue wiping everything out and starting over, visit our guide for more information about deleting your Snapchat account.
