Step 1: Tap “Saved” in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the settings icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Edit profile.”

Step 4: Tap your current username.

Step 5: Type your desired changes to your username.

Step 6: Tap another entry on the “Edit profile” screen (such as your display name or location) to finish editing your username (you can also tap “Return” on your device keyboard). Note: If the username you selected is already being used by someone else, the app will return you to your old username, as well as show a notice saying “Username already taken.”
