About restrictions on your Medium account

Medium may automatically restrict certain privileges for new accounts, or where suspicious activity has been detected, such as restrictions in publishing new stories or importing email subscribers.

There are many reasons why publishing may be limited or unavailable. In assessing accounts, we look at a combination of factors including but not limited to: the age of the account, completeness of the profile, linked social media accounts, and prior account activity (if any).

We urge you to audit your account, and update any missing or outdated elements. Learn more about account settings.
