For years, Snapchatters have been begging the app’s creators for a way of changing their cringey usernames which they set-up in their early teen years when the app launched in 2011.
Snapchat noted in the press release that the update is particularly important for trans and non-binary members on the platform in order to avoid deadnaming and misgendering on the site.
The move on the platform comes as TikTok recently banned the use of transgender people's pre-transition names and incorrect pronouns.
So, here’s how to change your username on Snapchat and clear the platform of your self-titled secondary school nickname for good.
Yes, it is possible to change your Snapchat username!
The username change will not impact any users’ friendships, streaks, snap codes, snap scores, memories, or other personalised features on the app.
However, you can only change your username once a year - there’s no chopping and changing here!
