Can someone see if I change their name on Snapchat?

Answered by Robert Flynn

When it comes to changing someone’s name on Snapchat, it’s important to understand that the change is only visible on your end. The person whose name you’ve changed won’t know about it unless you explicitly tell them. This means that if you decide to update a contact’s name on your Snapchat, it won’t affect how they view you or how others perceive you on the app. It’s purely a personal customization option that Snapchat offers.

To change someone’s name on Snapchat, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Snapchat app on your device.
2. Tap on the “Chat” icon located at the bottom left corner of the screen, which will take you to your list of conversations.
3. Find the contact whose name you want to change and tap on their name or Bitmoji.
4. This will open up a chat window with that person. Tap on the three vertical dots (also known as the “More” button) located at the top right corner of the screen.
5. From the options that appear, select “Edit Name.”
6. A text field will appear where you can enter the new name for the contact. Type in the desired name and tap “Save” or “Done” to confirm the change.

Once you’ve completed these steps, the contact’s name will be updated on your end. However, it’s important to note that this change is specific to your Snapchat account and won’t be visible to the person you’ve renamed or anyone else on the app.

Changing someone’s name on Snapchat can be useful for personal organization or adding a fun nickname to make it easier for you to identify them. It’s a feature that allows you to customize your Snapchat experience according to your preferences.

Changing someone’s name on Snapchat is a personal customization option that only affects how you see and interact with that particular contact. It doesn’t notify the person whose name you’ve changed, and it doesn’t impact how others view you on the app.
