After the recent security scares surrounding Snapchat, culminating in the apparent release of millions of users' login details and phone numbers, you may well have decided that enough is enough and you're done. However, while you can change your phone number – it needs to be a valid one still – within the app, you can't change your login name, or close down your account. There is an easy way out though – even if not well advertised – and we'll talk you through it.
Here's a top tip; even changing your account login name involves deleting your account. At this point Snapchat doesn't allow you to just change it. So, follow the steps below to close down your account, and if you want to continue to use Snapchat, you'll have to sign up with a different login name.
And that's really all there is to it. As mentioned above, if you just want to change your username you still need to delete your existing account, re-sign up with different details, and start all over again. But we don't blame you if you don't want to.
