Myspace had its monthly users at peak in December 2008 with 75.9 million. Since then, the number of users has been declining, but there are still many who are active on this platform. The site has evolved over the years, allowing you to look through old photographs, make connections, listen to music, and build an online portfolio. If you wish to return to the site but retain access to your email address, MySpace’s help page notes that you’ll need to work with your email provider. If you can’t get your email back, you’ll certainly have to create a new account. Before you do so, here are the instructions to recover your Myspace account.
Recover Myspace Account via the Sign-in Page
If you forgot the email address you used to sign up for Myspace, you can use your username (the portion after “https://myspace.com/” in the URL) to log in. You’ll be asked to provide your password. If you can’t remember your password either, go to Forgot Password. This will email the address associated with the Username you entered. Make sure you check all your email addresses in case you recalled the wrong one. If it wasn’t delivered to your inbox, check your spam folder. Here’s how that works:
- Go to the official website and click the “Forgot Password link for Myspace?”
- Type the email address or username associated with your account and click “Submit.”
- Check your email inbox for a message from MySpace with instructions on how to reset your password.
- Follow the instructions in the email and choose a new password for your account.
- Once you have updated your password, log in and change your security questions and answers to something only you know.
Can’t Access the Old Email Address? Proceed with Myspace Account Recovery This Way
It’s essential to contact your email service provider before attempting to access your account. Here’s a list of some standard email service providers:
- hotmail.com, msn.com, hotmail.co.uk
- att.net, sbcglobal.net
- yahoo.com, rocketmail.com, ymail.com, yahoo.co.uk, yahoo.ca
- live.com, windowslive.com, live.ca
- gmail.com, googlemail.com
- mac.com, me.com
Pick the one you suspect was used for Myspace, and follow its set of protocols to regain access, contacting the Customer Service team if needed. After you’ve logged in to your email account, you may use the “forgot password” form above and follow the same instructions.
How to Access Your Old Stuff on Myspace?
Though we may get into data recovery in detail at a later day, we should remind you the site has chosen to rebuild. As part of that, it incorporated content from the previous Myspace. For instance, you can see all your photographs and videos. The site has sent pictures over for all classic/old Myspace accounts. The Mixes section of your profile contains them. A Mix is like an image album, which you can view and edit further.
If you don’t see any images, your old Myspace may not have been synchronized with the new one. Check whether you can discover your old Myspace account somehow, which would let you sign in or reach out to the company. Unfortunately, since the previous account never officially migrated to the new, we can’t help you retrieve it. Also, friends are now known as “connections”. You can look your friends up and see who you’ve linked and who linked you on the platform by going to Connections.
