Go to "Settings" above to set your Username.  While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!

OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

How to Change your Username, URL, and Profile Picture

Here is my occasional service announcement…

OPSEC, OPerational SECurity, is always of the utmost importance. Please take the time to read the OPSEC and Community Guidelines ( Link Community Guidelines ).

A quick note here: Last Names of Recruits/Sailors are not allowed on this site. So, if your usename contains your last name and it is the same as your Recruit/Sailor, you will need to change it. If it is different it is still not a good idea as this is a public site and anyone may read the posts…they do not have to be a member. That is your choice though.

First Names and pictures of your Recruit are allowed, but remember someone can easily match them up with their "mom". So you might want to consider changing your profile picture as well.

How to change your username .

Just go to "Settings" which is in the list in the far right hand column of this page...under where you sign out of N4M's.

Your profile page will open.

Under "Profile" Username is the third item down.

Clear the info and type in your new username.

Once you do that make sure to click "save" at the bottom right of the page.

It is most likely in your URL…web address…as well, as it autofills with your original username.

How to change your URL:

See in the address bar at the top of the screen at the end of the "http" when you pull your page up that your name is at the end of the address?

To change that, again go to "Settings".

Once your profile page comes up go to the left and you will see a list of options.

Click "My Page". The third item down is "Address”.

In the box clear the info and type in whatever you want to be at the end of your URL. Your new username is the best idea.

Again click "Save".

How to change/Add your Profile picture

First you have to have the picture you want to use downloaded onto your computer.

Next go to “Settings”.  “Settings” is in the right hand column underneath where you sign out of Navy 4 Moms.

That will open up to “My Settings” page. Profile will be the page you are on.

Click “Browse”.

It should open up into your “Pictures” Library. If not,  then click Pictures to open it.

Click on the picture you want to upload, it should load it to the “File” box .

Click “Open”. It will upload it to a box and ask you to select the “visible region of your photo”.  Adjust it how you like it and then click “Save”. It will then save the picture to the small box.

Now you have to save the changes you have made. Scroll down to the far right of the Profile page and click “Save”.

Then you’ll get a message saying that “You have successfully saved your changes…go to “My Page”.

Let me know if you need help!
