Can I get a new Locator number?

Yes, if you are eligible, you can "refresh" your profile to get a new locator number by clicking on "NOW" under the Status Section of My Account, on the Manage Account page. If the "NOW" link does not appear, you will see the time and date when you are eligible to refresh.

"Refresh" means to obtain a new Locator Number for your profile. When you refresh your profile, it shows up at the top of the search results list, below the featured profiles.

When you refresh your profile and obtain a new Locator Number, your old Locator Number(s) will still refer to your new Locator so that everyone will be able to find your profile, even by using the old Locator Numbers.


Paid Subscribers can refresh their Locator Number once every 7 days. Non-paid Guests can refresh once every 30 days to get a new Locator number.
