Create or change username#

Click Edit to create or change your username. Your username must contain at least 3 characters and no more than 16 characters.

Change email address#

Click Change to change your email address. When changed, we'll send a verification email to the new address. You must verify your new address for the change to take effect.

Change password#

Click Change to change your password. You must choose a strong password with at least 8 characters. You'll receive a message if your password isn't strong enough. To estimate password strength, we look for common names, repeating and sequential characters (e.g., 1111, abcd), keyboard patterns (e.g, qwerty) and a few other things.

Delete account#


If you're paying for a membership, deleting your account automatically cancels your membership.
