You are only allowed one account on Upwork, so don't create a second one. You risk having both accounts suspended.

Yes. It's quite likely.

And why would you even do that? You can just edit your existing profile. There is no activity on it anyway.

You don't need to create a new account, all you need to do is change the email address on the existing one.

Yes, it will.

Tan Long, you have kudoed your own post with your other account. You need to do something about this.

Hi Tan Long,

 

Having multiple accounts is a serious violation of Upwork's Terms of Service. Could you please send me a private message with the Upwork username or registered email address of the account in question so that I can check and assist you further?

 

Thank you.

Hi Tan Long,

 

To clarify, please know that users are not allowed to have more than one freelancer account regardless if the old account is closed.

 

Thanks!
