How do I change my username?

Last Updated: Jul 05, 2016 02:52PM PDT

You can change your username in app by logging into your Periscope account and following the steps below:

  1. Select your profile icon (top right corner when you're on the ‘People’ tab)
  2. Select ‘Edit’ (top right corner)
  3. Select the second entry (entitled ‘@’) to edit your current username. Our usernames are unique to each user, so you’ll only be able to claim a username that is not currently taken by another user.
  4. Select the 'Done' button to save your changes

Please note that you will only be able to change your username twice in a 30 day period.

If you created your Periscope username using a verified Twitter account you won’t be able to change your username in app. Instead, please email us at
