Which login expires if I merge users?

The first login you use to merge users is leading. The other logins expire.

Is it mandatory on my users to merge?
No it's not required, but why not do it? It ensures that you do not have to store all different usernames and passwords.
Can I change my username?
No this is not possible. The username is automatically generated. You can only change a password linked to your username.
Is there an overview somewhere of how many users I have?
There is not a standard overview with all your users. Do you have a decent number of users and are you unsure whether you have merged all your users? Please contact our Support department to check whether you have merged all users belonging to your email address.
Can I also merge my users if I share them with a colleague?
There are several reasons not to share a user login. The most important is safety. You can read more about it in the article Personal login.
I have users with different roles, what about after merging into one user?

The role per user is linked to the account you have. If you are an owner in one account and a marketer in the other account, this will remain the same. When you log in with your details, you choose from the overview in which account you want to log in.
