How To Find Your Groupme Username

GroupMe is a popular social media platform where you can talk with people in group conversations. It is available on many different platforms which makes it incredibly convenient and easy to work with. You just have to download the app on whatever device you plan to use it on. 


Then, you install it and open it. Now, for anyone who has downloaded the app for the very first time, it can look a bit confusing. 

There is a lot that goes on. There are many buttons and features you can navigate. So, it can be a little tricky for a newcomer to get the hang of it. But, if you use the app for a little while, you will learn how to use all of its features. 

Now, the first thing people see when you contact them on GroupMe is your username or nickname. The username will pop up in every chat you type. If you are not happy with your current username, you can change it. But, what about finding out where it is?

Here, we will show you just that. How you can find your username and how to change it. It will take just a couple of seconds to get everything done. We made this guide to show you the steps. This is how you can find your GroupMe username. So, let’s get right to it. 

Step 1

If you’ve downloaded the app on your phone, launch it. Open any conversation on GroupMe. Type a message and send that message. In the chatbox, your message will appear. As you can see, on the top, right above the message you sent is your active username. 

The name that appears above the message is your username. The same goes for anyone else who has sent you a message. All the usernames will appear above their message. 

Step 2

Here is how you can see your username on the computer. If you use the app on a PC, you can see your username once you type in something in the chat. Or, you can open your profile settings. 

Right under your profile image, you will see a section that says “Name”. Next to that section is your current active GroupMe username. If you can’t find it, see the screenshot below. 

  • A Quick Tip

If you are not satisfied with the current username, you can change it. On the PC, just click on the “Edit” button right next to your current active username in the “Settings” menu.

Locating your GroupMe username is a piece of cake. Every time you type in the chat, your name will pop up above your message. If you followed all the steps, you know where to find it. Now you also know how to change it. It’s quick and easy.
