Username & Full Name


You choose your BeReal username when creating your account. Your username is unique to you and appears above your BeReal posts and on your profile. 

Change Your Username

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap your profile photo to edit your profile.
  3. Tap your existing username.
  4. Enter your new username.
  5. Tap “Change Username” to confirm and save.

Your username will update after you receive the subsequent BeReal notification and post a BeReal. You can change your username once per BeReal notification. 

Share Your Username

Sharing your username is the quickest way for your friends to find you on BeReal. You can share your username from your friends' section or your profile.

From Your Profile Page

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap your unique sharing link at the bottom of the page. 
  3. Share, share, share! 

From the Friends Section

  1. From the main BeReal page, tap the friend icon in the top-left corner. 
  2. Tap the “Invite friends on BeReal” option under the search bar. 

Full Name

If we’re honest, we all know usernames can be confusing. Your full name helps your friends find you! When creating your account, you choose your full name, and it’s visible to all users on your profile. 

Change Your Full Name

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap your profile photo to enter the “Edit Profile” page.
  3. Tap your existing full name.
  4. Enter your new full name.
  5. Tap ”Save” in the top right corner. 

You can change your full name whenever you like, and it will update immediately.

Real tip! Changing your username or full name does not send a notification to your friends.
