After you submit your profile & personal details you will not be able to edit some of them later on. This happens in order to avoid people from altering important details while they are using our website. If you have a mistake on your details, you can contact with our support to update and correct if needed. A verification process may be required.
Your profile name is unique and cannot be changed after you create your account. Your profile name is what people show in your public profiles, music and charts.

A verification process may be required depending on the type of the account.
The url of your profile cannot be changed mannually. The url is created from your profile name without whitespaces or special characters. The profile url may change only after a profile name has been updated.
Role Description is a short description for your public profile that appears below your profile name. For example an artist account will have "Artist" on their role description unless the user changes it. Some people want to include different words like DJ/Producer/Remixer or Music Lover etc. You can change and update "Role Description" anytime to your needs.
For security reasons personal details are locked once you submit and save them to to our databases and you cannot update them. If you have submitted your wrong details by mistake, you can request an update here.

It is very important to select carefully your rating preferences. Genres is not the best filter to apply for rating music in our days. We have added few more filters to improve the rating system like the general style of music. In music there are three categories of fans: the mainstream/commercial, the underground and those who are in between. We call this, Style of Music.
In Traxbeat when we say Mainstream we mean anything that is usually easy to listen to by the majority of human beings any time and most of the times have the following moods: happy, chill, funny, sexy, melodic, funky, radio friendly.
There are genres of music that tend to be not so commercial or not very supportive. There are also genres that have songs that are not so radio friendly or songs that are made for DJ use and not radio friendly. Usually those songs are characterized by the following moods: hard, sad, dark, monotone, revolutionary, club/dj friendly.
Of course there are also fans that do like both Mainstream and Underground Music, therefore you can select "All" to get a random song by both categories.
If you not into songs with lyrics and vocals you can select to listen and rate to only instrumentals and vice versa. If like both then you can select to listen to all tracks.
Select the "On" if you don't want to listen to music with explicit lyrics.

Your password should always be long. Why? Because long passwords are difficult to solve. On the other hand short passwords take up less storage space which makes them easier to break. Long passwords require attackers to make many more attempts to uncover the password. So always choose a long password with random characters including special ones.
For those who want an extra field of protection in their account, you can enable 2-Step Authentication to use with your Google Authenticator. When enabled, each time you login you will need to provide a 6-digit code to access your account along with your password.
