Give Your Facebook Profile a Custom URL


Open Facebook, click the arrow in the top right corner and then click Settings.

Under General Settings, you’ll see a section for Username.

Click Edit.

There should be something already in the username box, most likely Your.Name.27 or something similar. I’ve already grabbed harryguinness, so that’s what’s in the screenshots.


Facebook requires that your actual name is featured in the username, and they reserve the right to remove any username that doesn’t closely match your actual name. That still gives you a bit of leeway, though. Something like HowToHarry or HarryTravels would almost certainly be fine. It also has to be unique and can’t include anything but numbers and letters. Periods don’t make a difference either: harry.guinness is the same as harryguinness.

Pick something that meets Facebook’s rules and is going to be easy for you to remember in a bar at 2am and enter it in the text box.

Click Save Changes and then enter your password.

Your username, and with it the URL people can use to visit your Facebook page, will be changed.
