How to Find Your Facebook Username

In Short
  • Unlike regular names, Facebook usernames are unique to each user and assigned to you when you create your account.
  • To access your username on your computer, click on your profile icon > Settings > Settings & privacy > Accounts Center > Profiles > Username.
  • The steps are almost similar on the mobile app, just tap on the hamburger menu > settings icon > Accounts Center > Profiles > Username.
