We All Change. Now Your Username Can Too.

As an app built around ephemerality, we know that people grow and change–we certainly have over the last ten years. So starting today, all Snapchatters can change their Usernames. 

Snapchatters will be able to update their Username to any unclaimed handle once per year, with no impact to their Snap Codes, Streaks, Scores, or Memories. They get to keep all their friends and conversations going, under whatever Username suits them best. 

This highly requested feature is an important, and long requested one from our community. Have a look at the video below, to hear directly from our community about what this update means to them. 

Time for an update? Here is how to do it:

  1. Tap the Bitmoji icon in the top left corner of the Camera to head to the profile screen

  2. Select settings by tapping on the gear icon in the top right corner of the profile 

  3. Tap “Username,” just below Name, and select “Change Username” marked in blue 

  4. From there, click continue on the pop up reminding that Usernames can only be changed once per year

  5. Type in a new Username, hit next, and log back in to Snapchat to finalize!
