So, I made my map which I am deep into with trails and locations. I didn't know what I was doing at first and made the password for my map incredibly simple. Can I go back and change to a better password? I can't find the option.

    Hi there,
    If you go to manage this map, you should be able to just write in a new password.
    It will appear the same way it did when you entered the first password.

    I am unable to find a way to manage the map. I believe it is because I
    merged 2 accounts together.

    What is the ID of the map you're trying to change the password on?

    I can find an ID for it either. When I try to sign in my original account
    into logs into my merged account.

    When we say ID, it's the last 4 digits of the URL (69LV).

    Since the accounts are merged, it shouldn't matter whether you're signed in as braedon.s.toy or knobridgephotography - either one should be able to manage the map.

    Can you confirm that you're signed in as one of those addresses (click on your account name at the top of the left bar, then the "your account" tab and look at the top)? The "manage this map" link should be directly below your account name.

    I am traveling right now so I can’t access it from a computer, but from what I remember there’s no manage map option. There is just “[email blocked]” regardless of which log in I use and share map are my only options.
