Changing Account Settings

Your .Mac account has a wide range of settings that you can only change online. If you want to make changes to your personal information, credit card information, password, e-mail settings—or if you want to purchase additional iDisk space—you need to first log in to your .Mac account settings using a Web browser.

To log in to your .Mac account

1.
Type www.mac.com in your Web browser.

The .Mac Web page opens (Figure 1.5).

2.
In the lower left corner of the .Mac page, click Account to select it (Figure 1.6).

Figure 1.6. In the lower left section of the .Mac homepage you'll see the Account link. Click it to load the login page of your .Mac account settings.
