Parent Account: How can I change my username?

From your ChessKid Parent account home page, 

  • Click on "Settings" followed by the "Edit" (pencil) icon:

  • Here, type in your username request and then click "Submit":

Our staff will then review your username request. While you're waiting for approval, please continue logging in with the username given to you at sign up. 

Here are the guidelines for custom usernames on ChessKid:

Usernames on ChessKid may be 3 to 20 alphanumeric characters with no spaces or symbols other than - (dash), or _ (underscore), and these cannot be at the beginning or the end of the username.  Usernames must also be appropriate for young children; no adult themes or violence may be used.  If your username is not approved, you will receive an email or message in your ChessKid Inbox.

If you are unable to log in with your old, or new username, please send a message to or click here and a support agent will get back to you.
