Snapchat users must understand the distinction between Display Name and Username.
- The username displays beneath the display name, which is located at the bottom of the profile image.
- The display name is the person’s full name, and the username is something like “user name” (numerical values).
If you’d want to modify your Display Name, follow the procedures below:
- Tap on the gear icon in My Profile Open Settings, click on ‘Name.’
- Click Save after entering the Display Name you want others to see.
Snapchat Username Change
While you can modify your Snapchat display name at any moment, you can’t do the same with your username. You must delete your account in order to obtain a new username. This is why, while creating a new Snapchat account, you should take great care in selecting a username and then adding it to your profile.
If you need to give someone your username but don’t remember it, go to your profile and search under the display name. You can send it to the person with whom you want to share it by copying and pasting it.
Snapchat should be turned off.
- If you don’t have any Snapchat buddies or don’t want to use it for the time being, deleting it is the best option.
- To get started, go to the site of the account and enter your username and password.
- You will find the option to delete your account on this accounts portal.
- When you click it, you’ll get a notification saying that your account will be deactivated for 30 days before being completely erased.
- This is a useful feature because if you change your mind, the data in your account will not be erased and you will have 30 days to restore it.
If you don’t log in and reactivate your account within 30 days, all of your snaps, chats and device data will be lost, and there will be no way to recover it.
Snapchat only stores certain information after an account has been terminated for legal and security reasons. If you make a purchase on Snapchat, for example, Snapchat will keep track of it.
