Some people can get tired of their display names on their Snapchat and want to change them. So, here is how to change Snapchat name very easily. There are two methods, one to change your display name and the other to completely change your username. Snapchat currently does not allow changing username, so, the second method is for that.

Method 1: Change Snapchat Name (May not Work)

This method will show you how to change Snapchat name. This name is the display name that others will be able to see on Snapchat. If you do not find this option to change the Snapchat name, you must do the method 2.

Here are the steps how to change Snapchat name:

  1. In Snapchat, open your profile.
  2. Tap on your Bitmoji to go to your personal profile.
  3. Under the Snapcode or the Snapchat ghost, tap on your name.
  4. A box will appear where you will be able to change Snapchat name.
  5. When you are done, tap on save.

You can also do this through these steps:

  1. In your personal profile, tap on the gear icon on the top right.
  2. Under “My Account”, look for “Name”.
  3. Change your Snapchat name.
  4. When you are done, tap on save.

This way, you will only be able to change your display name that other people will be able to see. You can change this as many times you want, but you won’t be able to change your unique username. If you want to completely change your username, follow the next method.

Method 2: Make a New Snapchat Account

This method is a little painful because it involves deactivating your current Snapchat account and making a new one. If you really want to change Snapchat name and unique username, then you should follow this method. Once you make a new account, you will be able to choose a new unique username and display name. This is how to completely change Snapchat name:

  1. Before you start to deactivate your Snapchat account, make a note of all people and friends you are following so that you can add them back in your new account.
  2. Visit this link and enter the username and password for your current Snapchat account.
  3. This will deactivate your account. Go here for more information.
  4. Reinstall Snapchat app on your phone.
  5. Follow the process to create a new account.
  6. This time enter a new username and display name.

You will have a completely new Snapchat account, with a new username and display name.

This was how to change Snapchat name. Snapchat currently doesn’t allow changing username, so you can only do that through the second method mentioned before, which may not be required by most people. Still changing the display name is easier and quicker.
