Tumblr: Here’s How to Change Your Username in the Mobile App

A user's previous handle will be saved for 24 hours

All links will be broken if you keep your new username

Tumblr recently introduced the ability for users to change their username within the Tumblr mobile application. Formerly, this could only be done on Tumblr’s website. Our guide will show you how this feature works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Tumblr app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the account icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Change username.”

Step 4: Type the new username you’d like to have.

Step 5: Tap “Save” to save your new username. Note: Tumblr will reserve your previous username for 24 hours, in case you change your mind. After that, your old username will become available for others to use. Also note, when you change your username, any existing links to your page will also be broken.
