Cannot login to my account. Did not change logIn/Password freak1945 6/10/09 1:05 PM
Hi folks,

4 Months ago, I suddenly couldn't login anymore to my
account. I'm not sure why. To my knowledge, I did not change
my LogIn Data. I had a lot to do in my job, so I could not take
care of it. But now I want to open my acc again. (Its a bit late, I know)
;-)

Is there a way I might get my access back ?
I registered with my gmx-mail address, but YouTube did not
accept it when I wanted to retrieve my password. Its really a weird problem.
At first I thought, that someone had taken over my account by guessing my password,
but that does not seem to be the case. Its as if my LogIn Data has been deleted or changed.

Maybe someone from the YouTube staff can help me.
Its not a scam or something like that, its really my account.

cheers,

freak1945

Make sure your browser is accepting cookies from YouTube, and that your computer's security software isn't interfering with this.  Also, try using a different browser.

Well if your account login data has been changed and YOU didn'd change it, then someone must have gotten access to your account somehow and changed your login info so you can't login.
 
Unfortunately, there is no way of accessing your account unless you login with the correct password.

If your account data has been altered, there's a chance you have been phished.  Since this obviously didn't happen in a PM on your account, have you received an emails recently appearing to be official YouTube emails?

@ YtVigilantes:
Ok, I'll try that with Opera and Chrome.

@elculver2424:

Yeah, I remember now that some time ago, a porn uploader had guessed my PW and put a clip on my account. I promptly recieved a warning from YouTube.
I changed the PW, deleted the porn clip and nothing happened since (until the logIn Problem of course). Maybe that guy(?) tried that again, but did not
do much this time.

@YtVigilantes: No, I didn't receive any spam of that kind.


Anyway,  I tried my old PW and played a bit with it.
The old PW I used had a "O" (Letter), I then tried replacing the "O"  with
a "0" (Zero), and THAT worked...I suddenly have access.

I know for sure, I did not change this. I still had the old Password
in my Firefox "Saved Passwords" Folder.  Really weird. Is it that easy
to guess the PWs ? I deliberatly mixed several random letters and numbers,
and still it was found out apparently.
