How To Change Your TikTok Name

TikTok has become one of the most popular apps around, and with each day, new and weird trends and hashtags are going viral. You may want to update your name to suit your personality or to make it easier for your followers to find you on the platform.

There are two types of names on TikTok; username and name. The username has the ‘@’ symbol that enables other TikTok users to find you. A TikTok profile name is the name that is visible to users on your profile. When you create a TikTok account, the social media platform will automatically assign you a name. Most times, the name can be a long boring name and you might want to change it. 

Luckily, TikTok has made it possible for users to change their TikTok names. This can be done easily under your profile page. I will explain in the guide below how to go about it.
