Change Your Instagram User Name [Android]

Most of the time it must have happened with you that while creating an account you do not consider a good username for the account but then later when you come to know that everybody on that social network will be interacting with you through the same username then you must have repented that you could have opted for a better name and then you cannot change that username because the account has already been created and it won’t let you do that. You will have to create a whole new account for a new username. But something like has happened with you in case of Instagram then let me tell you that we will have a solution to that problem and it will let you change your username right now when you are reading this post.
