Q. Why can't I log in?

If you cannot log in to iAnki, it is probably due to one of the following:

- You entered your user ID (your e-mail address) incorrectly.
If your user ID (your e-mail address) is entered incorrectly, you will not be able to log in. Take care when entering your e-mail address as many users type the part after the @ symbol incorrectly.

- You entered your password incorrectly.
Passwords are case sensitive. If you enter your password after pressing the CAPS LOCK key, you may type letters in upper case when they should actually be in lower case. Check that you have not accidentally pressed CAPS LOCK before typing your password.

Q. How do I change my e-mail address?

To change your e-mail address, after logging in to the Web version of PC, click your profile picture or your nickname on the left menu to access your user profile page. Click "Edit" to be taken to the "Edit profile" screen. To enter a new e-mail address, click "Edit" under your e-mail address.
