I don’t recognize my username. How do I change it?

In order to protect your privacy, Course Hero automatically generates an anonymous username for you. If you prefer to customize your username, you can do so by editing your profile. 

  1. Hover your mouse over your Profile Picture icon at the top right corner
  2. Click "Account Settings"
  3. Once the page open, click on "My Profile"
  4. Look for where it says " Basic Information " and click the blue "Edit" button on the right
  5. Edit to the username you would like, and click the pink "Save" icon on the right 

*Important Note: You can only change your username once and if your provided username is already taken by another user, an error will occur asking you to try again.
