How to change username on instagram [before 14 days]

You are not happy with your Instagram username? Here's how to change username on Instagram easily.

We randomly assign a username while creating an Instagram account. But later if we want to add our Instagram account with any of our business then this username doesn't match.

That is, you must change your old Instagram username if you want to keep your business-related username or any other username of your choice.

To change your username on Instagram, you can use Instagram apps or the web version.

But before you change your Instagram username, there are some things you should keep in mind:

  1. After 14 days, you can change your Instagram username once again or stay with the one you previously used.
  2. If you want to change your Instagram name or Instagram handle you can change it twice within 14 days.
  3. The username must be under 30 characters and cannot contain anything other than letters, numbers, periods, and underscores.

What happened if you change your Instagram Username?

  • Changing your username will not affect your followers.
  • Your old username will appear as the user not found on every post, comment, or like that it is tagged in.
  • The Instagram profile URL contains the username. After changing the new username if someone searches your profile URL an error will appear "sorry this page isn't available".
  • That is, you must update it wherever you have posted the URL of your Instagram profile in a blog post, email signature, or website. Otherwise, errors will occur.
