  • Organize Your Udemy Courses With Collections

    As you enroll in more-and-more Udemy courses, you may find that you want to organize the courses in your My Courses section. By utilizing our Collections and Archive features, you can easily organize your Udemy courses in a variety of ways and plan your learning accordingly. 

    Collections

    By using the Collections feature, you’ll be able to organize courses into collections based on category, projects or learning goals that you create. In addition, the collections feature will help you plan your learning by organizing which courses you might wish to take together.

    For example, if you’re enrolled in several courses related to web development, you could create a collection named "Web Development", and assign related courses to it. Or, if you’re taking several courses to help you build your first business, you could create a collection named “My Business”. 

    How to Create a Collection

    You can create a new Collection, and assign courses to it, by following these steps:

    1. After logging into Udemy, Click on My Courses at the top right of the page
    2. Click on the vertical ellipses at the top right of the course card
    3. Move your cursor to Create New Collection and click on it

    6. The course will be assigned to that collection

    2. Click on the vertical ellipses at the top right of the course card
    3. Collections you have created will appear
    4. Click on the collection name you would like the course added to. 

    You can also add a course to multiple collections if you wish, by selecting additional collection names, when you click on the course card's vertical ellipses. If a course has been added to a collection, a green checkmark will appear by the collection name. 

    Please note: archived courses cannot be added to existing collections. If you would like to add an archived course to a collection, please unarchive the course first. For steps on how to do this, please click here.

    collection_title.png

    When you hover your cursor above a course on your My Courses page, it will show how many collections the course has been added to.

  • Has my Account Been Compromised?

    We know how upsetting it can be if you think your account may have been accessed without your authorization. But, before you panic and conclude your account has been compromised, consider whether there may be a reasonable explanation for the activity you’ve encountered. Here are some common explanations for activity that can be mistaken for a security breach. 

    I can't login:

    Is it possible you’ve forgotten your password? Or if you’ve recently created an account, could the password that was entered be different than you recall? If so, you can request a password reset email by following these steps.


    I can’t find the courses I enrolled in:

    Could the course have been archived by accident? If so, you can follow these steps to locate the course and return it to your My Courses

    Could you have used a different email address to create the account? Or misspelled your email address by accident when you created it? Could you have more than one account as a result? This article has more troubleshooting tips if you’re unable to find your course.


    It looks like someone was watching my courses:

    Has someone you know used your computer or mobile device recently? Is it possible they watched one of your Udemy courses? Or, could you have left a lecture playing by accident? Do you have the autoplay feature enabled in the lecture player? If so, this could explain why your course progress is presented differently than what you recall. 
     

    What to do if you Believe Your Account was Compromised

    If you’ve noticed suspicious activity in your account, which cannot be explained by the reasons above, then immediately request a password reset email by following these steps. Accounts can become compromised if an individual gained access to your login credentials through fraudulent activities, like for example, a phishing scam.

    Please note: your password will automatically be reset after you initiate the password reset process.

    If you do not receive the password reset message within an hour, please check your spam folder. Also, please be sure the no-reply@e.udemymail.com email is added to your safe sender list. For information on how to add the Udemy address as a safe sender, please refer to this article

    If you do not receive a password reset email, and are unable to set a new password, then please contact Udemy Support.

  • Keeping Your Account Secure

    Udemy has security protocols in place to help keep your account secure, but there are several things you can also do to protect your account, and dramatically reduce the likelihood of it being compromised.

    Choose a Strong Password

    Choosing a strong and unique password is an extremely effective way to protect your account and prevent unauthorized access. While selecting a password for your account, we strongly recommend you consider the following:

    • Select a password that is easy for you to remember, but that does not include words that a stranger might guess. So, we advise not to use words you may utilize in your social media accounts, like your name, location, favorite team etc. 
    • Don’t use obvious numbers (for example, don’t use numbers that are in your birthday or phone number). Use uppercase letters or additional characters (!, #, & etc) in your password, as this makes guessing a password much more difficult.
    • Create a unique password for each account and service you have, rather than using the same password for each site. This way if one of your accounts is compromised, then that password cannot be used to gain access into other accounts you have.

    Change Your Password Periodically

    We also recommend changing your password periodically, as this is another great way to keep your account secure. When you do change your password, we recommend creating a new one, rather than using a password you’ve already used.

    For steps on how to change your account’s password, please click here.

    More Tips to Protect Your Account

    In addition to selecting a strong and unique password, there are several other simple ways you can protect your account, and greatly reduce the likelihood of it being compromised.

    • If you’re accessing your Udemy account from a public or shared device, be sure to logout of your account when you’re finished studying.
    • Always log in at https://www.udemy.com/. Check the URL of the page before you enter your login info if you're unsure. In addition, you can also type https://www.udemy.com/ directly into your browser.
    • Do not write down or store your password in your files or online accounts.
    • Do not share your Udemy account or account credentials with others.
    • We advise against using the same password for each site. But, if you did use the same credentials on another site or service that’s had a security breach, be sure to change the password for your Udemy account.
    • If a computer or mobile device you used to access your Udemy account is lost or stolen, use another device to initiate a password reset email. For steps on how to do this, please click here.

  • Adding and Deleting Cards in Your Account

    If you want to make purchasing courses faster and easier, you can securely save your credit or debit card information in your Udemy account. This way you will not need to re-enter the card information each time you purchase a course.

    Credit Card Security

    Udemy never stores your full credit or debit card information on our systems. Instead, we work with credit card payment processors who are certified under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

    When you enter your credit or debit card details on Udemy, that information is sent directly to secure databases maintained by these payment processors, who then complete the transaction. That partner will then provide us with a portion of the stored information (such as the last four digits of your card number) to help do things like document your purchases and label your saved cards.

    During this process, our partner will also provide us with a randomly generated alphanumeric ID called a "token". This token allows us to reference a saved card during future transactions, even though we don’t have the full card number on file ourselves. Because we store a token instead of the full credit card number you originally provided, there is no way for anyone who is logged in to your Udemy account to obtain your full credit card information from within your account. In addition, there is no way for a third party to reverse-engineer a token ID to obtain the credit card information.

    Adjusting Your Transaction Information Settings

    You can have the system automatically select your saved card for a purchase, by turning on the Use my transaction information for further purchases option. If this option is turned off, however, then no card’s information will be entered, and the payment page will not select the Remember this card box.

    To either activate or disable this option, please follow the steps below:

    1. Move the cursor to your profile picture at the top right of the page
    2. Click on your name
    3. Next, click on Credit Cards on the left hand side
    4. Toggle on or off the Use my transaction information option

    save_cc.png

    How to Save Your Credit Card Information

    If you wish to save your credit card information, so that you don’t need to re-enter it next time you purchase a course, please follow these steps:

    1. Click Take This Course
    2. Enter the credit card information (under Add new card)
    3. Make sure the Remember this card box is selected
    4. Hit Pay and the card’s information will be saved in your account


    payment.png

    Purchasing a Course With a Saved Card 

    If you saved your card information during a previous purchase, you can quickly use that card again to purchase another course without re-entering it.  

    If the Use my transaction information for further purchases option is turned on in your account, then the card’s information will automatically appear. If you have more than one credit card saved, however, then you can select which one you would like to use for the purchase.

    Editing and Deleting Cards in Your Account

    If you’ve saved your cards and would like to edit or delete the information in your account, please follow these steps:

    1. Move the cursor to your profile picture at the top right of the page
    2. Click on your name
    3. Next, click on Credit Cards on the left hand side 
    4. You can edit the credit card information by clicking on Update (once you've finished click Update again), or remove it from your account by clicking Delete

    If you have any other questions regarding how to add, edit or delete cards in your account, please contact Udemy Support.
