A Custom PIN is a fun way to personalize your BBM account. Your free Custom PIN does not replace your current PIN, but is a unique PIN that is displayed in your BBM profile and can be used to invite and receive invitations from other BBM users.

The following are a few things to keep in mind when creating your free Custom PIN:

  • You cannot claim a custom PIN that is being used by someone else.
  • Please choose your Custom PIN carefully to ensure that you comply with the requirements below.
  • You may lose your Custom PIN if you have been inactive in BBM for a period of time.

To create a free Custom PIN, you must adhere to the following requirements:

  • Your Custom PIN must be MINIMUM 6 CHARACTERS and MAXIMUM 8 CHARACTERS LONG OR subsequent to BBM on Android v3.3.17.152 and BBM on iOS v300.0.172.344 MAXIMUM 32 CHARACTERS LONG.

  • Your Custom PIN is limited to numbers, letters, underscores, and dashes.

  • Your Custom PIN must not include abusive, defamatory, libelous, obscene, profane, illegal, deceptive language, or be used for any unlawful purpose.

  • Your Custom PIN may not be used to impersonate another individual, brand, organization, event, or to otherwise mislead, confuse, or deceive others.

  • Your Custom PIN must not infringe upon or violate the rights, including intellectual property rights, of any individual, brand, organization or event. For example, your Custom PIN may not violate the trademark rights of another person or entity.

BBM reserves the right to reject, remove, and/or reclaim any Custom PIN at any time for any reason. Please refer to BBM's Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, Channel and Official Account Terms and Community Guidelines (click here).
