I’m sure that many times you would have wished that you could change your Snapchat username. Snapchat did not allow us to change our username once we open a new account. But when we are new to Snapchat and we sign up on for the first time, we don’t know if we can change the username or not. And sometimes we end up signing up with some random username that we regret later.

Your username is the most important aspect of Snapchat and even any other social media platform. This is how people recognize you on these social media platforms. So it has to be unique and perfect!!
