How to change your username on Instagram


Contrary to what happens in other social networks, Instagram gives many facilities to change the username. From the own settings menu of your account and immediately you can modify your username in this social network. It is a very simple process that you can also do from the web version of Instagram or from its mobile app.


What is your username on Instagram


When you access the main menu of your profile on Instagram you will see that your username appears at the top. In fact, your username also appears in the URL that leads to your profile on the social network: www.instagram.com/username. By operating rules of Instagram, the username must have a maximum of 30 characters. It can only be made up of letters, numbers, dots, and low bars.


It should be clarified that your username and your profile name do not have to be the same. The profile name is the one that appears in it just below your photo, if you use Instagram from the mobile app, and to the right of the image if you access from your computer.


In the case of the profile name, unlike the user name, it is possible to enter as many emojis and special characters as we want. You can change your profile name as many times as you like, and the process is almost the same as for changing your username.


How to change the username from the web version of Instagram?

Once you have accessed the desktop version of Instagram, enter your profile and click on the "Edit profile" box, which appears right next to your username.


On the next screen, Instagram will show you several aspects that you can modify. You will see two different boxes: one of them says "Name", and it is for your profile name, and another one says "Username", which is the one that interests us.


You simply have to write the username you want to use and then click on "Confirm". When choosing a username you must bear in mind that the one you choose may already be occupied. Not surprisingly, Instagram long ago exceeded 1 billion users. In case this is the case, Instagram will inform you that this name is not available.


From the mobile app

The process is very similar in the Instagram mobile app. As from the desktop version, you must access your profile and click on the "Edit profile" box.


From there it will lead you to a very similar window in which you must rewrite the username you want to use. Then you click on "Confirm" and it's done.
