It's easy to change your TikTok profile name or username if you're not happy with the names you originally chose. Both your username, preceded by an @ sign, and your profile name can be easily changed.
Perhaps you wish for something more exciting than your real name, perhaps you were unaware that your chosen profile name would be made public, or it no longer fits with the content you are posting - whatever the reason, changes to any of these aspects of yours Accounts are easy.
Whether you want to change your name or your username (which also appears in your profile URL), here are the instructions. The steps may differ slightly depending on whether you have a Browser, the Android app, or the iOS app for iPhone or iPad.
Log into TikTok.
Go to your profile page by tapping your profile picture or "Me" in the bottom right corner.
Select "Edit Profile".
Change TikTok name: Tap to the right of Name.
Change TikTok username: Tap to the right of Username.
Once you have entered the name and a green tick appears, then tap on "Save".
Important: The username must be unique and must not already be taken, otherwise you will receive an error message.
You should only change your username if it is absolutely necessary, because all links and other references from other websites that refer to your TikTok profile must be adjusted afterwards so that visitors do not receive an error (404 error - page not found). .
Profile name and username - that's the difference on TikTok
The username on TikTok is the identifier for your profile - it's preceded by an @ symbol, and is usually a form of your name or some other recognizable term. It is unique for each user and helps others find you when they search for you or watch your videos.
Your profile name (or "name"), on the other hand, is visible to all users and is displayed at the top of your bio. That's why it's important that you choose a name that reflects who you are and what you're posting. You can easily change this in the "Me" tab in the app.
