Troubleshooting


I don't know how to access my account

If you don't know what social media account is associated with your Medium account, try signing in using your email address instead, and when you sign in, check your social connections in Settings.

If you don't know what email address you created your account with, check your email inbox. You should have received a welcome email from Medium when you created your account for the first time.
