[url=http://www.bungie.net/en/Clan/18405]As the Welcoming Committee[/url], we're here to provide you with help as we're always watching [b][url=http://www.bungie.net/en/Forum/Topics/0/Popularity/None/Help]#Help[/url][/b]. This thread serves as our FAQ for dealing with Bungie.net User Profile links and Authentication methods (Signing in/out) of bungie.net. [quote][b]What is a Bungie.net User Profile?[/b] [spoiler]This is your profile created on bungie.net. You attach authentication methods to access your Bungie.net User Profile.[/spoiler] [b]What is an authentication method?[/b] [spoiler]An authentication method is HOW you sign into your PROFILE. You can use a Microsoft, PlayStation, Facebook or Google+ account as authentication methods. These are the "keys" to access your account.[/spoiler][/quote] ------ [quote][b]How do I change my password on bungie.net?[/b] [spoiler]Depending on which way you're connected, you must sign into the authentication method that's linked to your Bungie.net User Profile and change your password from there. It will automatically be reflected to bungie.net. [quote]For a [url=http://goo.gl/TRg6rm][b]Microsoft Account[/b][/url] For a [url=http://goo.gl/Pdb2qT][b]Playstation Account[/b][/url] For a [url=http://goo.gl/sN52hV][b]Facebook Account[/b][/url] For a [url=http://goo.gl/n31Q2e][b]Google Account[/b][/url][/quote][/spoiler][/quote] [quote][b]How do I add an authentication method (Microsoft, Playstation, Facebook or Google+) to my Bungie.net User Profile?[/b] [spoiler]Once signed in to bungie.net, go to your [url=https://www.bungie.net/en-us/User/Edit]settings page[/url], then click "Account Settings". Click on the appropriate "link" to authenticate it. Simply sign in with that new authentication method and it will become linked. [quote][b]REMEMBER[/b] PlayStation Network accounts may require more credentials, such as a creation of a PSN ID, before linking the account. [/quote][/spoiler] [b]How do I remove an authentication method from my Bungie.net User Profile?[/b] [spoiler]Sign into bungie.net, go to your [url=https://www.bungie.net/en-us/User/Edit]settings page[/url], then click "Account Settings". Simply click "unlink" and that authentication method will be removed.[/spoiler][/quote] [quote][b]I have TWO Bungie.net User Profiles, how I do combine/merge my login methods together?[/b] [spoiler]1. Decide on the Bungie.net User Profile that you're going to use. 2. Sign in to your preferred Bungie.net User Profile. 3. Link the authentication method used to access the other profile. You will be asked to confirm that you want to move the authentication method from the old profile. Confirm your decision. [b]IMPORTANT NOTE[/b]: Data from the abandoned profile will not merge with your primary profile, only your credentials are moved. You also risk leaving no authentication method at all associated with your other profile, which means you can never access it. Make sure this is what you intend to do. [/spoiler] [b]I accidentally created a NEW Bungie.net User Profile when I really wanted to link my two existing accounts! What do I do?![/b][spoiler]You must decide which Bungie.net User Profile you wish to be your primary. [b]Setup for resolving the issue[/b]: 1. Select a Bungie.net User Profile to be your primary profile. 2. Sign into your primary profile. 3. Link the authentication method tied to the profile you created by mistake. You will be asked to confirm that you want to move the authentication method from the old profile. Confirm your decision. [b]IMPORTANT NOTE[/b]: Data from the abandoned profile will not merge with your primary profile, only your credentials are moved. You also risk leaving no authentication method at all associated with your other profile, which means you can never access it. Make sure this is what you intend to do. Navigate to Profile > Settings > Linked Accounts > Click "Link with [Authorization Type]" (ex: "Link with Facebook") > Sign in with chosen Authorization Type[/spoiler] [b]I haven't been here in a while and I just signed in and I was forced to create a NEW Bungie.net User Profile?[/b] [spoiler]When you sign in with a brand new authentication method to bungie.net, if it isn't attached to a Bungie.net User Profile, you'll be forced to create a new one. If you had an OLDER Bungie.net User Profile, you must login through that authentication method to gain access.[/spoiler][/quote] [quote][b]How do change my PSN or Xbox Live Gamertag/Handle on my Bungie.net User Profile? [/b] [spoiler] Remove the Xbox Live or PSN authentication method that you're going to swap out for the new one. Then follow the above steps to add your new Xbox Live/PSN authentication method to your Bungie.net User Profile.[/spoiler] [b]I changed my Microsoft Account on my Xbox Live account. When I went to log into Bungie.net it had me create a new account. What gives?[/b] [spoiler]Your Bungie.net User Profile is associated to the email you used when you signed up, not the Xbox Live account. By changing your Microsoft Account on your Xbox Live account, you actually prevented yourself from signing back in (unless you had linked other Authorization Types). To rectify this, you'll need to change your email address on your Xbox Live account back to what it used to be, then sign into Bungie.net and link a different Authorization Type (PSN or Facebook). [quote][b]TO CHANGE ALIASES[/b] [i]Go to[/i] [url]http://account.live.com[/url]. [i]Click[/i] [b]Account aliases[/b] [i]Click[/i] [b]Make primary [/b][i]under the alias you want as your primary[/i] [/spoiler][/quote][/quote] [quote][b]How do I verify my bungie.net user profile?[/b] [spoiler]This is managed through Profile > Settings > Email Settings. From there, you can change the CONTACT email address that you wish to be addressed by Bungie at. Simply change the email address to one that you want and you will be sent an automated email from Bungie. Click on the "verify now" link in the email and you'll be redirected back to bungie.net. You can also check the verification status from the same menu.[/spoiler][/quote] For more tips and general information on bungie.net check out the [b][url=http://goo.gl/v30duf]Bungie.net Community FAQ[/url][/b] or use the navigation below to our other #Help threads.
