How to Change Username on TikTok

Outgrowing your username on social media sites is nothing out of the ordinary. Luckily on TikTok, the option to change your username is available to users but there is one small catch. 

Your username can only be changed once every 30 days, so be sure to choose wisely when you begin the process. 

To get started, follow these steps:

  • Open the TikTok app. 
  • Click on your profile icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
  • Click the “Edit profile” button in the middle of the screen. 
  • Click on username.
  • Type in the new username you want and see if it is available. If it isn’t, you’ll just have to try different variations of it until one becomes available. 
    • Usernames are only allowed to contain letters, numbers, underscores, and periods. 
  • Click “Save.”

If you feel like changing your username on your desktop instead, that works too. But even if you decide to use a desktop instead, the rules remain the same. You’ll still only be able to change your username once every 30 days and it will only be allowed to contain letters, numbers, underscores, and periods. 

To get started on changing your username using a desktop, follow these steps:

  • Open tiktok.com in your browser. 
  • Log in to your TikTok account. 
  • Click on your profile icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. 
  • Click “View profile” from the drop-down menu. 
  • Click the “Edit profile” button.
  • Click on the box next to “Username,” and type in your new username. 
  • Click “Save.”

Choosing the Right Username on TikTok

If you want to change your username on TikTok, but you aren’t sure what you want to change it to, there are a few things you can consider when deciding. 

  • Pick a username that reflects who you are as a person or as a social media user (i.e. pick a name that goes along with your niche).
  • Avoid anything that might be inappropriate or offensive to others.
  • Keep it short and simple so other users can find you easily if they need to. 
  • Consider a username that you use on other social media platforms to remain consistent.
