How to Change Your Display Name on Kik

Changing your name on your Kik allows you to maintain a certain amount of anonymity on the service (or just make up fun names). Here's a simple guide how to change your display name on Kik:

1. Tap the Kik icon on your phone to access your Kik account. On the main page, tap the "Settings" icon which looks like a small cog wheel. You can find it on the upper right corner of your screen beside the message bubble icon.


2. On the Settings page, tap "Your Account," after which you will be able to see your Kik Username and your name.


3. Tap "Name" to change your display name. You won't be able to change your Kik username that is why you have to make careful consideration what username to use when you create a Kik account.


4. Once you tap "Name," a pop-up window will appear where you can enter the new display name you want. After typing, tap "Confirm."


5. Go back to your account page to view if the new settings has been successful.
