1) Creating a new account in the LEGO® Life app...
- Where do I sign up?
In the welcome screen, select “Sign in”. Create a new user using your existing LEGO ID username and password, or by tapping “Don’t have a LEGO ID?” and following the onscreen instructions.
- How do I create a nickname?
The Nickname Generator allows you to select the name that others will see in the app and creates randomized options for you to choose from. You can scroll back and forth through ten possible nicknames, but lose one option when you scroll to the eleventh, and so on. Choose carefully! Right now, your nickname can’t be changed once you’ve accepted one.
- I didn’t do any of that! What can I do without signing in?
You can use the app without logging in by tapping “look around”. BUT you can’t upload your creations, customize your avatar, receive personalized content suggestions, save your favorite pictures, videos or challenges. Logging in with a LEGO ID allows you to use all of these great features! To sign in, just tap on the minifigure head and then the settings icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
2) I’m signed in! How do I share pictures in the LEGO Life app?
In a challenge, just tap “Upload image” and follow the instructions. To take a photo and just upload it to a group, tap the minifigure head and swipe down to find the “Add a photo” icon. In the image gallery, tap the camera icon to access your device’s camera and follow the instructions. Then tap on “Share it”, or “Keep private”.
3) I’ve uploaded the wrong picture! How can I delete it?
Right now, it isn’t possible, sorry, so be absolutely sure you want to make your picture public. You can keep uploaded images private until you’re ready. Just tap “Keep private” and the lock icon will tell you that no one else can see it.
4) I uploaded an image but it hasn’t appeared yet. What’s happened?
Everything in the LEGO Life app gets “moderated” before it gets shared, to make sure there is nothing rude, scary or violent there. We check there is no identifying info, like your name or a school logo, that everything is your own work and that the picture isn’t blurry or unclear. We do all this as quickly as possible, but sometimes there’s a short wait.
5) How do I enter competitions?
Just upload and share a picture of your model or artwork by tapping on “Upload Image” in the competition. Easy. You’ll need to be signed-in with a LEGO ID, and models must contain only LEGO elements, no real people or identifying information. Note that competitions have deadlines, age restrictions and other rules to follow.
6) What is the Avatar builder and how does it work?
Create an onscreen image to accompany your uploads and comments, using minifigure parts and accessories! You create one on sign-up and can edit or add different avatars whenever you like. Tap the minifigure head at the bottom of the screen to see your avatar, then tap it to make changes! Check out the video on the "How-to" page for more info.
7) Can I post videos in the LEGO Life app?
Right now, it isn’t possible to upload and share videos in the app, but this is something we are working towards!
