Users can submit material in the form of links, text posts, photos, and videos to Reddit, a social networking website.
Every user must choose a username while creating an account. Because Reddit usernames are used to identify users, it’s important to choose one that you’ll keep.
However, there may be times when you need to update your username. We’ll go over everything you need to know about changing your Reddit username, including the rules and how to create a new account.
How to Change Your Reddit Username?
With one exception, it is not possible to modify your Reddit username once it has been established. You may be allowed to alter your username within thirty days if you created an account with your Apple ID or Google Account.
If you created an account with a Google account or an Apple ID within the previous thirty days, follow the steps below to change your username.
Changing your username on the Reddit website
- Visit the Reddit website.
- Log in using your Google account or Apple ID.
- Click the button on the top right that says “Change Username.”
- Enter your desired username, or use a randomized one.
- Click on Save Username.
Changing your username on Reddit on the Android or iOS app
- Launch the Reddit app.
- Sign in using your credentials.
- Tap on your profile icon on the top left.
- Select the option to change your username.
Your account is likely more than thirty days old if you don’t see the option to alter your username. It’s also possible that you selected the option to keep it by accident.
Your username will be permanent after you choose and save it. After that, you won’t be able to change your username for that account.
What is the best way to make a new Reddit username?
Reddit users who are dissatisfied with their existing username can create a new account. Users may create as many accounts as they like, according to Reddit.
There are many good reasons to create several accounts on Reddit, but you must follow the terms of service and content policy. You should not manipulate postings by using numerous accounts to upvote or downvote them.
To create a new account on Reddit:
- Visit the Reddit website.
- Tap on the Sign-Up button on the top right.
- Sign up using your Google Account, Apple ID, or email.
- If you use an email, choose a username and password.
- Finish the process by clicking the Sign-Up button.
How to Create a new Reddit account using the same email address?
You can use this approach if you just have one email address but want to have many Reddit accounts. If you add a + sign to your email address, you will be able to create a new account. Let’s look at an example.
Let’s say your email address is email@example.com, and you have a Reddit account linked to it. You can register at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to establish a new account using the same email address.
The good news is that Gmail treats this email the same as any other, so you’ll continue to receive all incoming mail at that address. Sending oneself an email and checking if you get it is a good way to test this.
This method works on a variety of social media platforms, including Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, and others.
That’s all there is to know about changing your Reddit username and creating a new account.
