Account Details

Username: This is your current username. This username can be changed by following the directions here.

E-mail: Required. You may change this, but note that e-mail addresses cannot be shared among accounts. That is, one e-mail address cannot be registered with multiple accounts. You will need to confirm by e-mail when changing your e-mail address.

Although your e-mail address will not be displayed publicly on WordPress.com, when you submit a comment while logged into your account, the e-mail address will be transmitted to the blog’s owner/administrator.

Website: Not required. This is the URL that will be linked to your username when leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Please note that this is stored at the time of the comment, so if you do update this, it will not affect past comments (only those made in the future).

New Password: Use these fields to change your password. Both fields must match in order for the password to be successfully changed. Please use the strength indicator as a guide when choosing a new password. Your password is vital to your blog’s security!
