Dear Support team,


I want to share my Upwork account with my friend.

And he can change the email address and profile information  without my confirmation. That means I will lose account if the password was hacked. It's very drangerous...


Can you exlpain how can I protect my account ?



Best regards,

You can't share your account with your friend. It will get you banned.

Yes, I know. My friend never gets my account.
In case my password was hacked, I think I will lose the account Smiley Sad
I'm worrying about that Smiley Sad

Hi Phuc,


As Katrina pointed out, you mustn't share your account log in information, password and security question with anybody. You are the only person who can log in and access your account. Please, check out this posts and resources for more information:

Please can you help?

My account was hacked and email changed without giving me the prompt to confirm from my email.

How do I recover my account?
