How to Change Your Snapchat Username on iPhone

Though there is no straight forward way, you can change your Snapchat username with this hack...

Snapchat undoubtedly allows you to change your display name. You can even change someone else’s Snapchat display name, but there’s no option for you to change your Snapchat username. Snapchat has this policy as a security measure against harassment.

However, if you don’t like your username and want to get a new one without losing your contacts, there’s a workaround. You’ll just need to create an all-new username before getting rid of your old username. Here’s how to.
