Hi TK,

 

If you need help restoring your account, weโ€™ll need to ask you to confirm some private account details in order to help you. At Upwork, protecting your privacy is our priority. With this in mind, it would be best if you reach out directly to our support team so they can assist you within a private and secure channel of communication. 

 

How do I reach a human in customer support?

 

  1. Please visit Contact Support and click the 'Chat with Upwork' button.
  2. Type a question or topic and select 'Send'. The bot will find relevant Help articles for you.
  3. The chatbot will ask you to confirm if you need additional help. If you confirm that you need additional help, you will be asked to confirm the account type you need help with.
  4. From there, the support options available to you will be listed. Select either of the options to be able to contact the Upwork Support Team.

Hi there

I also have this issue. This is a new account as I was overseas when using the old one. I would really like to use that one. I have passport, driving license, etc. as proof of ID.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Matt,

 

Could you please click on my name and then on "Send a message," and then send me the email address associated with the old account?

Hello,

My account was suspended for the reasons unknown to me, in a period of time, when I wasn't even using Upwork.

I asked about it in a ticket, but wasn't getting a response to it for more than 10 days. As it was pretty urgent, I, out of despair decided to delete my account and reopen it, to draw attention of your team.

 

But now I can't reopen it. When I send a request to reopen it, I get a response, that this account was suspended... and I can file an appeal.

But if I try to file an appeal, it says, I can't do that, because my account was closed. 

Seems there is no way out of this circle.

 

So I created a new account and now using it to write this message.

Hello,

 

I had to create a new account with a different email to even be able to post this. However, here is my issue:

- When I try to signup with Google Auth or my email, Upwork tells me there is already an account associated with that email

- When I try to login or reset my password with that same email, Upwork tells me there is no account associated with that email

 

Thus, I can both not login or signup using my main email. I have tried using the Chatbot, 100% unhelpful. I have tried to send in requests to reset the password, but have not heard back.

 

How do I resolve this?

 

Thank you.

Hello,

I was trying to log in to my old Upwork account, but I got an alert saying my account had been closed and to contact support to get it open again.

 

I could find no way to contact support without logging in first, which of course I cannot do since my account is closed.

 

I had to open a new account, but I still want to get my old one back. How can I go about recovering it?

 

Thank you

Hello,

 

I am posting this on behalf of someone else (since they have trouble logging into Upwork). 

They had previously created an account but closed it a year ago. Now on trying to create a new account, a message of "This email is already in use" appears. At the same time, the login page also turns up the message "Oops! Username is incorrect".

I believe it's the same issue as in this post - https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-to-Upwork/Problem-with-accounts/m-p/434264

Kindly help. I can provide more identity verification in DMs.

Hello,

 

I have an account with Upwork linked to the**Edited for Community Guidelines**email address. I try to reach my account but I get a message "Your account has been blocked because we've suspended operations in Russia and Belarus."

How can I possibly get my account unblocked as I am not in either of these.

Thanks for your help.

Hi!
My old email was **Edited for Community Guidelines**, but since I changed my phone I had so
much trouble accessing the account.
I opened another gmail account and tried to add it to the upwork account.

I had this request, but after I changed the password and tried to log in
again, my password was not working.

Hi All,

 

I'm becoming increasingly with Upwork and the moderators. I have sent several direct messages to these so called moderators as they have failed to escalate my case. I am unable to reopen my account and have waited weeks for them to respond. Really bad customer service - How many direct messages do you need with my details?

Hi Shabraiz,

 

Please check your inbox. I have responded to your PM.

Hi Team,

I created a casual profile a whle back and now I wanted to create a proper one using my CV etc. I used my professional email when I created the account first. I closed that account and started fresh. I couldnt reuse my professional email as system wouldnt allow me (emal already exists).

So i created an account using my private email, now I want to change my new account's email to my professional one. How do I do that?

Thanks
