To change your eToro login details, you can modify your registered email and password through the platform's 'Settings' section. However, it's important to note that your eToro username is fixed and cannot be altered once set. Ensure you remember your username as it's a permanent identifier for your account.

 

Introduction

When I first ventured into online trading, I quickly realized the importance of secure login details, especially on platforms like eToro. Over the years, I've come to see these details as my first line of defense against potential threats.

⚠️There have been moments when I feared my eToro login details might have been compromised. In such situations, it's imperative to swiftly update your credentials to prevent unauthorized access. Wondering how to go about it? Let me walk you through my experiences and offer some insights on updating your login details effectively.

 

Understanding Your eToro Username

I remember the excitement of choosing my eToro username when I first signed up. However, I later learned that this username is permanent. It was a bit surprising, but I appreciated eToro's commitment to security, ensuring a consistent user identity.

 

Steps to Change Your eToro Email Address

I've had to change my registered email a couple of times due to various reasons. Here's how to do it:

  1. Log into your eToro account.
  2. Navigate to the 'Settings' section.
  3. Choose 'Account' from the options.
  4. Locate the section that indicates your email address and click on the corresponding 'Change' button.
  5. Enter your new email and confirm the change by clicking on the blue 'Done' button.
  6. Check the new email for a verification message from eToro.

 

How to Modify Your eToro Password

There was a time when I suspected a breach in one of my accounts, and I immediately decided to change my eToro password. The process was smooth:

  1. Sign in to your eToro account.
  2. Go to the 'Settings' section.
  3. Select 'Account' from the dashboard.
  4. Locate the section that's labeled 'Password' and click on the 'Change' button.
  5. Entered your current password and then set a new one.
  6. Click on the blue 'Submit' button when done.
  7. Peace of mind restored!

 

Security Tips for Your eToro Account

Over my trading journey, I've picked up some essential security habits:

  • I always use a mix of characters for passwords.
  • I avoid obvious details like birthdays.
  • Every few months, I update my password.
  • I've enabled two-factor authentication on eToro for an added layer of security.

 

What to Do If You Forget Your eToro Username

I'll admit, I once forgot my username (okay, maybe twice). But a quick check of my old emails from eToro, where they addressed me by my username, saved the day. If you're in a similar spot, this trick might help.

 

Troubleshooting Common Login Issues

I've had my fair share of login hiccups. Here's what I learned:

  • Incorrect Password: Use the 'Forgot Password' link. It's a lifesaver.
  • Account Locked: Wait for a bit or contact support. They're quite responsive.
  • Verification Email Not Received: Always check the spam folder first.
  • Login Page Inaccessible: Either you have an internet connection problem or there's an on-going site outage.

 

Contacting eToro Support

On the few occasions I needed help, the eToro customer support was there for me. Whether through live chat, email, or phone, they've always been prompt and helpful. Just be sure to check their operating hours and which method of communication is available.

 

The Bottom Line

In conclusion, my journey with eToro has taught me the importance of secure login details. While the platform offers robust security features, it's up to us, the users, or traders for that matter, to ensure that our details remain safe. Here's to secure and successful trading!
