Modifying login information

FAQs:

1. Can I change my login method?

2. I have created multiple accounts, can I merge them?
  No.

3. I am changing my email address but the system is not accepting it.
  It’s possible that there is an existing account associated with the email address that you want to use. You will have to delete first the account related to it.

Password Reset and Account recovery

Password reset is quick and simple, it can be done here https://simplywall.st/account-recovery. Assuming you are using social login, you can still utilize the password resetting process to access your account. This special case applies for users who lost their access to their social accounts. For full instructions, you may view our article on how to reset your password and recover your account.

Apple login

For accounts created through Apple Login, when you initially signed up Apple created a relay email address that hides your actual email address. Hence when requesting a password reset, make sure to toggle enable the email forwarder of the relay email created by Apple so you may receive the password reset email.

To do this,

  1. Go to Settings > Apple ID
  2. Proceed to Password & Security > Apps Using Your Apple ID
  3. Look for Simply Wall St and then toggle enable the Forward to option as shown in the screenshot below.

NOTE: If you are logged in and you are not able to see your subscription or portfolio, it is possible that you have more than one account and you have incorrectly logged in to the wrong one. You may view our article here on how to find out if you have more than one account.
