If you probably were in a bit of a rush when you opened your TikTok account, chances are you may not like the username you signed up with. So, instead of having to stick with a username, you don’t like, you can follow a quick and straightforward process to change your TikTok account’s username. In this guide, we will show you how to change your username on TikTok.
How to Change Your Username on TikTok
Although you can log in to TikTok using a web browser, there are certain settings (including your username) that you cannot change using the web mode except by logging in through the app on Android, iPhone, or iPad.
Once you are set, launch the TikTok app on your mobile device or tablet, and then sign in to your account. You can do this by tapping the “Me” tab from the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
Now, you should see your profile displayed alongside the TikTok videos you have posted and liked. To proceed to change your username, tap on the “Edit Profile” option.
Once in the Edit Profile menu, tap on the listing that says “Username.”
Now, you should see a box for you to enter your new preferred TikTok username. Enter a username of your choice and make sure that the name does not breach TikTok’s terms of service for prohibited words and phrases. Suppose you have typed in a username, and it is already taken. In that case, you will have to repeat these steps with a different username that another user has not registered before you can successfully apply the setting.
You should not that TikTok allows you to change your username only once every 30 days. As such, you should be sure about the username you choose to save. Once you are certain, tap on the “Save” button in the screen’s top right corner.
TikTok will immediately save your change. That’s pretty much it! I hope you do like your new username! If you have any questions, make sure to leave them in the comments below.
