Preference Information

You can find the Preferences link above the search boxes in the top right corner of the screen. Here, you can change various information linked to your account.


To change your player name (you can't change your login name), go to Preferences. Any players with discriminating names will be deleted on sight. Your new name can be a maximum of 15 characters long and only contain letters, numbers, dashes or underscores. It costs 100 points to change your name, this cost will increase if you request a name which is already taken by an inactive user. Upon changing your name, you will not be able to do so again for 3 months.

If you want to take the name of an inactive player the cost will be 200 + ( playerLevel * 50)


The process of changing your email is quite explanatory, just navigate to the right tab and follow the steps carefully!


To change your password you have to type in your current password and then the new password you want. You will then have to login again using your new password.

It is important to remember no member of staff will ever ask you for your password and you should change your password periodically for your accounts protection. Any website asking you for your login details to Torn could result in your account being hijacked and loss of your items and money. It is very important to remember there are no cheats for this game and anyone offering them to you just wants to access your account for their gain and your loss. Don't become a victim to this.
