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.

I'm not receiving verification emails from Medium

Below we've gathered some helpful tips that should help you troubleshoot email problems on your side.

Make sure your email address is correct

  1. Click on your avatar in the top-right corner of the page and click Settings.
  2. Under Your email, double check if your email address is correct. If you need to update it, click Edit email and confirm the change by clicking Save.

Check your spam, trash folders, and other email filters

Search your "All Mail" and "Spam" inbox for emails from Medium. If you set up any custom email filters, double check them to see if they send Medium emails into some other folder.

Allow receiving emails from Medium

Ask your IT team, email administrator, or ISP if your email server is blocking emails from Medium. Emails from Medium come from, so that email address might need to be whitelisted.

Can I set up a password?
