In this guide check out how to change Snapchat Username easily with few clicks.
For Snapchat users who have been dreading their names and other info is included as part of the database of leaked information that Snapchat has witnessed a few days ago, there’s good news. While the immediate reaction of the Snapchat website after its huge 4.6 million database of usernames and their phone number along with other details were hacked was to suspend the site, it is on road again.
So if you’re addicted to Snapchat and wish to continue using this popular app for connecting with friends and others just continue with it. You can take precautionary steps like deleting your Snapchat or removing the phone number that has been given to it. Once you delete the Snapchat user account a new one can be opened, and you can connect across to people you know with it. Alternately, just change the existing Snapchat user name.
