Home Social Media TikTok How to Change Your Username on TikTok
When you create a Tik Tok account, you’ll have to come up with a username and password combination. Your username will be the name you use throughout the platform. However, what happens if you want to change your username? There’s a chance you might end up hating the username you came up with when you started.
Luckily, TikTok allows users to change their usernames, with some minor limitations. Here’s everything you need to know about changing your TikTok username.
Only a few steps are involved to change your TikTok username successfully. Here’s what you need to do:
Note that you can usually change your username every 30 days, so make sure you don’t make any mistakes when typing in your new username as you won’t be able to change it during this timeframe.
Usually, TikTok only allows username changes every 30 days. However, there’s a workaround for this limitation. Here’s what you need to do:
As you can see, the workarounds on date-based limitations are quite simple and effective, and it will only take a minute to go through the entire process, rather than waiting 30 days to get your desired username.
Singing into TikTok is easy:
When you make a new TikTok account, you start with an empty profile page, including a non-existent profile photo. Changing this photo is simple. To do so, follow these steps:
Your profile photo is one of the first things other users will notice about your account, so make sure it represents you or your brand well.
Your TikTok username should be simple and representative of how you want to appear to the general audience. A really attractive, cool-sounding nickname will help you stand out amongst millions of active users and ultimately, help you get a good following. While your content is the deciding factor in getting a follower base, your username can also be an important start.
There are online tools to help you decide on a good-looking username if you’re stuck for ideas. A website like nickfinder can be a decent platform to start with.
Unlike changing your TikTok username, password changes are slightly different. If you’ve forgotten your password and can’t log in, follow these steps:
• Open the TikTok app.
• Tap Sign In, then Log In on the bottom of the page.
• Select Use phone/email/username, depending on what you’ve used to create the account.
• Tap Forgot Password.
• Use your phone number or email to reset your password.
If you want to change the password while you’re already logged in, follow these steps:
• Tap on Me.
• Tap on the three dots on the top right corner.
• Select Manage Account.
• Tap on Password.
• Follow the instructions to reset your password and create a new one.
If you’ve used a different social media account to make a TikTok account, you’ll need to go to that platform to change the password.
We’d recommend not using profanities or obscene words as part of your TikTok account, as that might get you banned from the platform. Additionally, try not to give away any hints in your username as to what your email address and password might be, as that can pose a security risk.
Generally, we recommend catchy, simple names that your audience will remember. One thing to consider is the names you’re using for other social media accounts. Keeping names similar across social media will make you more recognizable across different platforms and give your accounts a uniform, clean appearance. No matter what you choose, your username is the first thing many people see when encountering your content, so make sure you plan wisely.
The exact numbers aren’t publicly available, but according to some statistics, TikTok has 800 million active users monthly. However, the app has recorded over two billion downloads, meaning the exact number of users is likely to be larger than that. Overall, TikTok is currently one of the most popular apps worldwide.
Now you know how to change your username, profile picture, and password on TikTok. Sometimes, getting a fresh start is good for your brand’s image and creativity. Usernames are an important aspect of each profile, and a catchy one is more likely to get a larger following.
