We were all there. You set up a new account and simply enter what comes to your mind as a username. Later you realize that this was a mistake. If this happened to you on Snapchat or you just want a new identity, we have bad news. In Snapchat, users can not change their username for security reasons.
One thing you can do to change your image in Snapchat. With the app, you can change the name everyone sees when you send snapshots and publish stories. It is also very easy to change. Most people do not see your username, so changing your snap name is more productive anyway.
How to Change Your Name to Snapchat
To change your name to something more appealing, open the app, and then tap your profile icon. Then tap on your current name, which is just below your snapcode. You can change your name in a dialog box. Enter your new name and press Save to complete the process.
What happens if you change your snap name to 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 come looking for you. If you change your name, no one will be notified. Unlike other social media apps, you can make changes indefinitely. You can change your identity as often as you like.
If you really want to change your username
If you want to change your username, there is only one way. You have to delete your account and start over. Be forewarned that if you choose this route, your current username will be permanently deleted. No one, including you, will ever be able to use it again. Not to mention that you all have to make friends again and all your snapshots have disappeared. If you're 100% sure you want to delete everything and start over, read our guide to learn how to delete your Snapchat account.
