As you may already know, TikTok has become the social network of the moment in which millions of people create content on a daily basis. Maybe with the hysteria of the moment, you too created a profile in this application and now you don’t like the name you initially chose. For this reason, today we explain how you can change your username on TikTok following a tremendously easy process but, yes, with some limitations.
How to change the username on TikTok
Despite the fact that many other social networks put limitations when modifying your data in it since we do not usually change our name as a “common” actIn all these applications we can do it with greater or lesser difficulty.
The case of TikTok is something special since it is a service that does not hinder you at all details such as changing your username, public nickname, or even delete your account from the app. This detail greatly improves the experience that users can have with it by not feeling so “trapped” to the limits imposed by the developer.
However, a detail that you must take into account, and that TikTok makes very clear when carrying out the modification process that we now teach you, is that you will only be able to make a change to your username every 30 days. Something understandable from what has already been said, we don’t usually change our real name every day, right?
Now that you know this little clause that the social network imposes on us, it is time to find out how the process is to modify the user’s nickname of our profile. The first thing is to enter TikTok:
- Once inside, go to your wall by clicking on the “Me” menu in the bottom right bar of your screen.
- Now you must enter “Edit profile”. This is where you can make all the modifications of your user within TikTok. Data such as your name, photo or video presentation, your profile description, or even the address of your Instagram account or YouTube channel.
- At this time you just have to click on your current username and, on the next screen, write the new name that you would like to have in this app. If once placed a green check appears on its right, it is free and, therefore, you can use it. This is also where this service alerts you of that period during which you will not be able to modify this section again. So think about it or you should wear it for the whole of next month.
Once you click on “Save” this value will change and you will have already completed the process of changing your username on TikTok. That’s how easy this process is to do. Remember that you can also modify the “name” section so that both are consistent. Ultimately, it is the public nickname that people will see on your profile when they search for it on TikTok.
And, although it may seem obvious, we remind you that if you change your username, the previous “version” will remain free. Therefore, other people will be able to take it as their own. So be careful with the typical challenges or challenges because they could be expensive.
