If you signed up for TikTok quickly, you might regret your username. Rather than sticking it out with something embarrassing, changing your TikTok username is a quick and easy process.
While you can sign in to TikTok from your web browser, you can only change certain settings (including your username) with the TikTok app on Android, iPhone and iPad.
To get started, open the TikTok app on your smartphone or tablet and log into your account. Use the menu bar at the bottom and tap the “Me”
The app displays your user profile, with your posted and loved TikTok videos. To change your username, tap the “Edit Profile” option.
In the “Edit Profile” menu, tap the “Username” entry.
Enter a new username in the box provided. You must ensure that your username does not violate TikTok’s terms of service for prohibited words and phrases. If the username is already in use, you must repeat these steps before you can save the change.
You can only change your TikTok username once every 30 days, so if you’re sure about your changes, tap the “Save” button in the top right corner.
The change is applied immediately. After that, you may want to take further steps to secure your TikTok account, including enabling two-factor authentication on your profile. This will help prevent your account from being hacked or stolen in the future.
