No, you can’t update your login method.
Follow these steps to change your username:
Go to your profile > “Edit” > change your username > tap on “Save” at the bottom.
Tip: You can change your username only every 30 days.
To log back into an active Hallo account, you can go to the Login Page and sign in with the same information you used to create your account. Here, you need to remember which option you used to create your account. Did you use Facebook? Did you use your phone number?
If the app asks you for your personal information like your name again, try another login method because you are about to create a new account. If you still have trouble logging in, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, providing your username and any other information that you remember about your account. We will tell you which email/phone number you used to sign in. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you your password, and we can’t reset any password under Facebook/Google.
Tip: You cannot log back into a deleted account or if you are banned.
We suggest that you log out of your account instead of deleting it in case you want to activate it again- if you delete your account, you won’t be able to recover it, and you will lose your followers, chats, level, and all your information.
If you still want to delete your account, follow these steps to delete your account:
Go to your profile > Settings > Manage Account > Delete Account.
No. Once you delete your account, we can’t recover it. Please sign up again using a different method.
You can get temporarily suspended for breaking Hallo’s Code of Conduct. All suspensions are binding until expiration or removal upon appeal. Any attempt to avoid an account suspension using other accounts, identities, personalities, or presence on another user’s account may extend the length of your suspension, or it may lead to getting your account banned from the platform.
Hallo admins review every account and appeal. Generally, if it’s not a significant breach and you don’t have any other reports, your account will be unsuspended by an admin before three days. Otherwise, you will be automatically unsuspended after three days.
You can also get an automatic suspension for the following reasons: using a bad word more than three times, using Hallo for purposes unrelated to language learning, and consistently using languages other than English.
You can appeal your suspension by clicking “appeal” on your suspension notice and a Hallo admin will review it as soon as possible. Please avoid getting suspended by following our Code of Conduct and warnings.
You can get banned by breaking Hallo’s Code of Conduct multiple times and ignoring our team’s warnings.
Students and teachers that perform any of the following actions will run the risk of getting their accounts banned permanently:
-Breaking the Law
-Violence and Threats
-Hateful Conduct and Harassment
-Unauthorized Sharing of Private Information
-Spam, Scams, and Other Malicious Conduct
-Nudity, Pornography, and Other Sexual Content

At Hallo, we are proud to uphold a safe environment for every language learner at any age with any background.
If you think your ban was unfair, you can send an email to email@example.com and appeal your ban status. Please keep in mind that Hallo can track the exact reason why you got banned. If you want another chance, please be honest and improve your behavior.
