You recently registered a new profile on Reddit, and you notice you’ve been automatically given a username. If you’re new to Reddit, one of the first things you’ll notice after setting up your account is having a default username. As a new user, you will want to learn how to change your username on Reddit to something less generic than Virtual-Image577 or Traditional_Rate7199.

Important Note: This guide only explains adding a new username if you’re a new user still using your randomly assigned name. Once you change it to a new one, you cannot make any username corrections under that account. Therefore, be wise in making your decision!

In this article, we will show you how to change your username (newly assigned ones) on Reddit. First, however, Reddit revealed to the Wall Street Journal that it had 52 million daily users in 2020.

Furthermore, there are over 52 million+ usernames on Reddit already. So if you want to stick out from the crowd of randomly assigned usernames, you’ll have to make that change yourself. This article will teach you how to change your Reddit username on your Android and iPhone.
