How To Create A Custom GooglePlus Username?

Customize Google Plus Profile URL

Aah! At last! Just when we thought we would be stuck with the ridiculously long (and insane!) Google Plus profile URLs forever, Google finally announces a much anticipated feature on its social network; customizable profile URLs. Yes, that's right! It's time to join the Google Plus username bandwagon, because you can now get rid of those rusty old and chunky profile URLs, and get a nice Google Plus username and URL for your profile!

Note: You can claim your Google Plus profile username only if your profile has a display picture, has at least 10 followers, and is at least 30 days old.

Claim your username now!

To claim your username, simply visit your Google Plus profile (not your homepage, but your profile). Look for a notice that looks like this.

Click on the Get It button, and then agree the terms on the notice that appears next, and then clicks on Change URL.

Google will now ask you for your phone number. Select your country, and then enter your phone number. A code will be sent to you. Use that code for verification on the next screen.

Verify Phone Number

You're all done! You now have your profile public at!

Changing URL for Google Plus pages

If you own a Google Plus page, you can change the URL for that page as well in much the same way as a Google Plus profile. Google Plus automatically picks up the name for a profile or page, and reserves that URL for that person or page, so that no one else can snatch it and steal brand name handles.
