TikTok “Only letters, numbers, underscores, periods” can be allowed

When it comes to changing your username on TikTok, there are certain restrictions in place. According to a recent video transcript, the app only allows you to use letters, numbers, underscores, and periods in your username. Any characters outside of this scope will result in a message prompting you to only use the approved characters.

Let's take a closer look at this limitation. Suppose you have a username on TikTok that you wish to change. You can enter your desired new username, but if it includes any characters other than letters, numbers, underscores, or periods, you will receive a notification indicating that only these four types of characters are allowed.

It is important to note that periods can be added to the end of a username on TikTok. This means that if you wish to include a period at the end, you are free to do so. However, any other placement of periods within the username is not permitted.

Interestingly, some users have tried to add emojis to their TikTok usernames. However, as the video transcript suggests, this is not a supported feature. Emojis fall outside of the approved character set and thus cannot be used as part of a TikTok username. It is worth mentioning that the video transcript does show an individual successfully adding an emoji by tapping space and cleverly working around the limitation. However, it is uncertain if this workaround is an intended feature or simply a temporary glitch that may differ from device to device.

In conclusion, TikTok allows only letters, numbers, underscores, and periods in usernames. Any characters outside of this set will trigger a notification reminding users of the limitations. It is important to familiarize oneself with these restrictions before attempting to change a username on TikTok to ensure compliance with the platform's guidelines.
