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. Select Get Support at the bottom of the Help Center page
  2. Type a question or topic and select "Send." The bot will find relevant Help articles for you.
  3. If we don't find the information you need after a few tries, youโ€™ll see an option under the article selections to "Contact Support"
  4. Select "Contact Support" and follow the options provided

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.

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

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

Hello,

I lived in Russia and now I am relocated to Thailand

 

Now I'm getting the message "We're sorry, your account has been locked because we've suspended operations in Russia and Belarus."

The article says that if my location has changed, then I can request an appeal

 

This form doesn't work for me:
https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/5313574196627-Appealing-an-Account-Suspension

I get this automatic message:

 

Dear Dmitrii Blinov,

We see you submitted a request to appeal an Upwork account suspension.

However, the account you submitted it for either doesnโ€™t exist or is still active (not suspended).

If you submitted the form by mistake, no worries, weโ€™ve disregarded it. If you have other questions, please visit Upwork Help to contact our support team.

Thank you,
Upwork Trust & Safety Team

 

I couldn't get help anywhere, so I created a temporary account. I know that there was already a similar request from another user.

Hi Dmitrii,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Could you please provide the email address associated with the account? Please send it to me via PM. Just click on my name and then on "Send a message."

Hello, I need to delete my old account in order to use the email address assigned to it. I don't have access to the account and am unable to restore access to it.

Hi Mikhail,

 

Having multiple accounts is not allowed and is a serious violation of the Terms of Service, so you won't be able to use the email associated with that account in a new one. However, we can help you recover access to your original account. Can you please click on my name and send me a private message with the registered email address of that account?

Hello Luiggi,

Send you a private message. Waiting for response.
