What should I keep in mind when changing my profile name on Facebook from iPhone?

While it is true that Facebook freely allows users to change their profile name as often as necessary, this social network has limitations for this process. When you change your profile name on Facebook, in theory you will not be able to change it again for the next 60 days, but there are ways to change your name again without waiting for those 60 days.

Another tip provided by Facebook is to do not enter capital letters, punctuation marks, or characters that look like weird or random words. This is because if you put your profile name in random characters and words, it will be more difficult for your acquaintances to get your profile on Facebook.

However, even with limitations, you can enter the name of your choice in your profile when needed, and now that we explain it to you in simple steps, you can do it right away and teach others to do it from the comfort of your iPhone.
