Change your Instagram profile name
Do you use Instagram and entered your real name and surname when you registered? Do you want a little more anonymity now?
Don’t worry: you can change both your name and username at any time. This is how it’s done.
When you register on Instagram, you are asked for various information. Your name, username, email address, gender, and phone number.
If you have made a mistake when registering in one of these options, or if you suddenly decide to remain anonymous, it is perfectly possible to change all these data at any time. Instagram has everything you need to ensure that this is done quickly and easily.
You have two options: change your name and username (or nickname, if you prefer) from the mobile application, or do it through the web interface.
And whether you use Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari or another browser, it’s easy to change and has immediate effect.
