Changing your name on TikTok is a great way to revamp your account and turn it into something completely different. If you want to change your username on TikTok, here’s exactly how to do it.

Thanks to TikTok‘s ever-increasing popularity, more people are making accounts on the app by the day. This means that your favorite username might be taken, and you end up creating something random when you first download TikTok just so you can start watching videos.

But if you’re getting tired of your current username, you might be wondering if you’re able to alter it, or whether you’ll have to create a new account altogether.


Can you change your name on TikTok?

Yes, TikTok fortunately allows you to change your username, although it comes with a few conditions.

According to TikTok’s website, you’re only able to change your username once every 30 days, so whatever you change it to, you’ll be stuck with it for a month.
