How to Change Reddit Username and Display Name



Reddit Username

There are many reasons why a redditor might wish to change their display name. Most commonly, it’s just a desire for something new. It’s nice to keep an account feeling fresh and relevant. You may have originally named yourself after a sports team, television show or celebrity that seems less appealing to you now and want to try something different.

Redditors are free to change their display name at any time, as often as they like.
Changing your display name will change the identifier attached to comments, replies and private messages. You will not lose any accumulated karma points. The only thing that will change is part of your identifying information.

What you cannot do as a redditor is change your username at any time.
Usernames are different to display names. Your username is the name attached to the reddit account for security reasons and to make sure you cannot be impersonated. Usernames are unique like email addresses. Yours is the only one, and this is why you cannot alter it. The only way to change a username and detach from the content attributed to it is to deactivate the Reddit account and surrender all karma points.

Neither your username nor display name needs to include details relating to your birth name. Your personal information will be more secure if neither references your real name.

How to Change Reddit Display Name via Desktop Browser

Step 1. While logged into your Reddit account, open the settings tab.

Step 2. On User Setting, click on Profile tab and you will find the ‘Customise profile’ option.

Step 3. Add the new display name and click save.

How to Change Display Name via Mobile App

The same method can be used to change your display name via the mobile app.

Step 1. Open reddit app on your mobile and click on the profile avatar to access the settings tab. From there select My profile, which will take you to the profile customization page.

Step 2. Click on the Edit and a new window will open where changes can be made yo your Display name.

Step 3. Input your new Display name and don’t forget to save before you close the window.

How to Reset Or Delete Your Reddit Username

As already explained, there is no way to change a username without deactivating the Reddit account it is attached to. If you forget your username while trying to log in to your account, you can retrieve it. However, this won’t change anything. It will only give you a reminder of your existing username.

If it’s important you retire a username for security reasons, your only option is to delete the whole account. Another option is to set up a new Reddit account with a different name and make it your primary posting account. There is no limit to the number of accounts that can be activated using a single email address, so it’s very possible to browse and post as different ‘identities.’ This is normally done for data privacy reasons, particularly if a user is posting sensitive material they don’t wish to be overtly associated with.


The moral of the story is to be careful when setting up a Reddit account and choosing its username. Don’t include any words or phrases in your username that you’re not comfortable with other people attributing to your real identity. If you’d find it very difficult to give up an account and all associated karma, do not post sensitive or potentially embarrassing content to your primary account.

If you wish to change your Reddit displayname, it can be done in a matter of minutes. Usernames are permanent and not optional. You can choose not to have a displayname if preferred.

How to Add Pictures to Tumblr Descriptions




Tumblr Descriptions

Placing images on your Tumblr descriptions adds a visual appeal and dynamic to your page. If you want people to see a useful text in your blog, put a captivating picture next to it, and people are more likely to find the information you want them to see.

Below are some tips on how to add pictures to your Tumblr descriptions on your desktop or mobile app.

Adding Pictures to Tumblr Descriptions on Desktop

The first step is to ensure that your image is ready in the sidebar. You can open the image in another tab on your computer. You can also copy the URL to your desktop. If the picture is on another website, you can right-click on the image and select the ‘open in new window’ option.

The picture you insert in your description can be from any website on the internet. However, if you want to include an image straight from your computer, you’ll need to upload it to a hosting site first then download it from there to your Tumblr. ImgBB is one free hosting site which can come in handy. After uploading your image on ImgBB, you need to select “HTML thumbnail linked” and then copy the provided HTML code.

Log into your Tumblr account, click on the human icon on your screen’s right hand, and then click on ‘select your blog.’ Select the ‘edit appearance’ option then the ‘edit theme’ option.

Head to the customize panel then click on the description option to edit the description box. In the description section, paste your copied HTML code (from ImgBB). The result will be a display of the image you had initially selected in step 1.

NOTE: The size of the images can also be adjusted to fit into the description box perfectly, but for that you need to have some knowledge of HTML coding. For a resizing option, click on the edit HTML tool. You need to locate the picture in the source code then add CSS3 to adjust the image’s size.

Press the CTRL+ F shortcut to search for the image, then press ENTER to find the code that places the picture to your Tumblr description. Add the CSS3 resizing properties that can allow you to adjust the picture’s height and width.

Add Pictures to Tumblr Descriptions on Mobile App

The steps to adding an image to a Tumblr description on your mobile app are very similar to those for a computer.

Bottom Line

The steps above are a general image placement into your Tumblr description. You can, however, assert your creativity when it comes to your Tumblr description. Ensure that you remain within your particular niche and be keen on how your content resonates with your audience.
