How do I set up my profile?

Mariliam -

Your profile is a place where Viki users can find out more about you, like the shows you follow and your subtitling/segmenting activity. Account settings, on the other hand, is where you can adjust your subtitle and email settings, and connected accounts (like Facebook and Google+).

Edit Profile:

  1. Click the dropdown menu at the top right of the Viki homepage, and choose "Edit Profile’"

  2. From here, you can edit your full name, username, birthday and gender 

...beside the ‘Edit Profile’ tab, you will also see four more tabs: About Me, Password, Account Settings and Viki Pass Settings. Here is some more information about those tabs:
