Hey, all Snapchat users! For those of you who don’t know yet, you can now change your username on Snapchat. Snapchat rolled out an update of its app last year, enabling users to change their usernames. Changing the username won’t affect any other aspect of a user’s account, such as their friend list, snap scores, memories, etc. However, the only catch here is that you can change your username only once a year. Here is a step-by-step guide that we have provided below on how to change your Snapchat username in 2023.
Another note that Snapchat makes is that you can change your username to one that has not been previously owned by anyone else, including yourself. This implies that once you change your username, you won’t be able to revert it back. Hence, it is advised to choose a username wisely.
