If you are using Snapchat, it’s important to know how to remove your phone number from your profile. Your phone number is the most personal information on your profile. If you don’t want people to have access to this information, it’s a good idea to keep it off of your profile. Here are four ways to remove or hide your phone number from Snapchat.
How to remove your phone number from Snapchat
- Tap on your profile in the upper-right corner of your screen
- Scroll down to where it says “Edit Profile” and tap on it
- Tap on the blue box with a plus sign that says “Phone Number”
- If you want to hide your phone number, tap on the small arrow icon and choose “Hide Phone Number”
- If you wish to remove your phone number, simply tap on the delete button and confirm
Deleting your account
Some people choose to delete their Snapchat account. This is not a permanent solution, but it’s an option everyone should consider. If you want to get rid of your account completely, you can remove your phone number from your profile and even delete all of the photos and videos on your account.
If you only want to remove the personal information such as your phone number, it may be better to just create a new account instead of deleting your old one.
Changing your username
Changing your username is a good way to keep your phone number off of your profile. You can change your username from the settings menu on Snapchat. To do this, open the app, tap on the settings button in the top left corner of the screen, and select “Change Profile Name”. Here you can enter a new username into the field provided and then save it by pressing “done”.
Alternatively, you could delete your account entirely and create a new one that doesn’t have your phone number associated with it.
Switching to a new phone.
If you are switching to a new phone, it’s important to remove all your current numbers before you switch. This is one way to remove your number from Snapchat—just make sure it’s not already on the new device.
Another way to remove your number from Snapchat is to delete your account. You can do this by going into Settings > Delete My Account and selecting Remove My Account.
If you want to hide your number, another option is to block it. In Settings > Privacy & Security > Block Contact, select Block Contacts and enter their phone number information in the space provided. This will prevent that person from being able to contact you through Snapchat even if they know your username or email address.
Last but not least, another way is to change the privacy settings of your account so that only people who know your username/email address can view you on it.
