Change your Coursera email settings

You can use your Account Settings page to control how many emails you get from Coursera.

To subscribe or unsubscribe from emails:

Change your name on Coursera

When you change your name using Coursera's Account Settings, you only change the name that shows up on your Coursera account. It won't change the name that shows up on your Course Certificates.

To change the name on your Course Certificate, you'll need to request a name change.

Set up Facebook log-in

If you use your Account Settings to link your account with Facebook after you're logged into Coursera, you will link the account you're signed into to Facebook.

You can also link your account with Facebook from your Account Settings page. Scroll to the "Linked Accounts" section and click Link my Facebook Account.

If you've linked your account to Facebook, you can remove Facebook log-in from your Account Settings page. Scroll to the "Linked Accounts" section and click Delink my Facebook Account.

If you use the "Log in with Facebook" button to log into Coursera, you may accidentally create a separate account if the email you use for your Facebook account is different than the email you use for your Coursera account.
