    Hi,

    Does anybody know how many times can I change the username of an instagram account ?

    Instagram doesn't say anything about imposing some limit but I imagine using this feature would raise some red flags.

    Thanks

    Real quick, i'll piggyback off of this thread... to change a username means to change the url to the account as well, correct?

    So for example, if I have some accounts botting in some niche, which I find it to no long be profitable I can just change the username, profile pic and content and start promoting something else entirely with no problems?

    Has anyone done this?

    i don't think you have a limit as long as you are doing it in a way that is non-abusive. basically, don't change it every week because then your account will come under suspicion.

    That's true.
    I had to experiment with it eventually and I changed the niche on some accounts completely. Unfollowed slowly, deleted posts, changed username, website and bio. Accounts are still alive and active. (Had some PV requests on some but no bans)

    Its unlimited I think but instagram is thinking this way, why change your username if you're known with that one? most people wont be able to track you after a while and you will loose all your traffic eventually that is how instagram thinks at this point and they are laughing about it, and at the same time it will raise a ton of flags at the account by itself. A key to success on social media in general is to never change your username if you're trying to build traffic.
