How to Change Your TikTok Username (Without Getting Shadowbanned)

Step #1 Click on "Me"

Step #2 Click on "Edit Profile" 

Step #3 Click on "Username"

Step #4 Change Username and Save

Don't beat yourself up if you have user name remorse. Lots of creators on TikTok use a name that no longer fits their brand and they decide that a change is necessary. 

Before you change your TikTok username (which is fortunately very easy) just know that you might lose a little bit of traffic if people have been tagging you in previous content. 

Besides that and perhaps a little bit of brand confusion, the occasional name change won't cause any real harm. You can do it every 30 days but I highly recommend you only do it once or you might end up with a shadow ban since TikTok doesn't love when we change things. 

Note: The tutorial below is assuming you're changing the username from your phone. 

Step #1 Click on "Me" 

You'll find this on the bottom right hand side of the mobile app.
