Can I delete my Telegram username?

Answered by Edward Huber

You can indeed delete your Telegram username. I’ll guide you through the process step by step.

1. Open the Telegram desktop app.
2. Look for the hamburger icon, which is located on the top left corner of the chats list. It looks like three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other.
3. Click on the hamburger icon, and a menu will appear.
4. From the menu, select “Settings.” This will open the Settings window.
5. In the Settings window, you’ll see various options. One of them is “Edit profile.” Click on it.
6. Once you click on “Edit profile,” you’ll be directed to the profile editing page.
7. On this page, you’ll find your current username displayed. To edit it, simply tap on your current username.
8. When you tap on your current username, it becomes editable. You can delete your username by removing all the text from the field.
9. Once you’ve cleared the username field, click on the “Save” button located at the bottom right corner of the page.
10. By clicking “Save,” you will apply the changes you made, and your username will be deleted.

It’s important to note that deleting your username means you won’t have a username associated with your Telegram account anymore. However, your phone number will still be visible to your contacts unless you change your privacy settings.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you in deleting your Telegram username. If you have any further questions or need assistance with anything else, feel free to ask!
