How to Change Your TikTok Username

When creating a TikTok account, you are required to register a nickname and a username. The nickname is the general name that other users can identify you with. The nickname is located at the top of your profile in bold.

A TikTok username, on the other hand, is a unique handle that TikTok users can use to find your profile, or tag you in posts. After using TikTok for some time, you may decide to update your username to a more unique and appealing one.

It is possible and very easy to change your TikTok username. Changing your username entails searching for another unique name containing letters, numbers, underscores, and periods. It is worth noting that when you change your username, your profile link will automatically change to accommodate the new username.
