Here's how to change your account info (name, email, or password):

    • Phone or tablet: Open HBO Max, tap your profile (upper right), and then the Settings icon Settings icon (upper left). Sign in if needed.

    • TV device: You can't change your account info on your TV.
  2. Find or choose Account (Account is only available with Adult profiles).
    If the Password field says 'Add a Password,' then you're signed in through your TV, internet, or wireless provider account. To change your provider account password, refer to your provider's sign-in page or Help Center.
  3. Select the Edit icon Edit icon next to the field you want to change. We'll send you an email with a verification code to your account email address. The email subject line is 'Here's Your One-Time Code.'
  4. Keep HBO Max open while you check your email.
  5. Open the 'Here's Your One-Time Code' email and find the 6-character code. If you didn't get this email, see the Troubleshooting section below.
  6. Go back to HBO Max, enter the 6-character verification code, and choose Continue.
  7. Change your account information and choose Save.
