One thing to note is that we have added an additional step to protect your account privacy.

In order to be able to make changes such as password changes for the first time, connecting a Google or Facebook account, adding a parent email, and/or deleting an account, you will first need to reauthenticate your account by typing in your account's password or by using your Google or Facebook authentication.

If you are younger than 13, only your parent or your teacher can edit your account settings.
