If you have a new awesome idea for a username, you should check if it’s available. That’s exactly where this guide comes in. We will show you how you can check if the username you like is currently taken or not. 

Now, before we get into the guide, there is something we want to mention first. There are two ways you can see if that username is taken. The first option is by signing up to the Twitch platform for the first time. And the second is by changing your current username from your profile settings. 

So, let’s get right to it. Here is what you should do if you want to check if the username you like is available. 

Option 1

The first option is to sign up to Twitch. If you don’t have an account and you want to join the community, you can always go to the website. The first buttons on the top-right corner are “Sign up” and “Log in”. If you don’t have an account you will have to create one first. Click on the “Sign up” button and write the username you want. 

Username Isn’t Available

 When the username you type is not available, you will see this red button on the right side of the screen. Twitch will also notify you under the name. This means that you need to come up with a new one.

When the username you type is available, you will see this green checkmark on the right side of the screen. This means you can use the username you just came up with.

Option 2

The second option is by changing your current username on Twitch. To do that, you go to the “Settings” and “Profile Settings”. Here you can change the username.
