Forgot password didn`t recognise my email

[ Edited ]

I `ve installed new windows. I didn`t remember my skype password.

I tried "forgot password" and entered my email. My email wasn`t recognised.

After trying a few times i registered a new account with the same email.

I then searched by email and my older account was found and with the same email.

I tried to recover my password again but i am only getting password reset for my new account and not for my older one. So how do i reset the password for my older acc or whom should i write for help?

If your original account has a billing or purchase history in the last 6 months, you can request for a new password without the need of the email address registered in it.  If your original account has also been inactive for quite a while, it may be possible that it has been temporarily deactivated (but not deleted by Skype,and this is just a assumption), I think in such cases, you may need to contact customer service, links pasted below;

 

-support.skype.com/support_selection (login required)
-support.skype.com/support_request (no login required)
-email: contactus@skype.net

 

And to possibly avoid further inconvenience or confusion, I suggest that you change the email address you registered in your new account to something else.  :happy:

Re: Forgot password didn`t recognise my email

if you guys haven't used your account for quite a while, Skype might have already tagged them as inactive.  You may need to contact customer service and request them to reactivate your account.  Please refer to my earlier responses on how could you contact customer service.

Re: Forgot password didn`t recognise my email

I have been using my account regularly! I logged out to let someone log on to their account but I use automatic log in. So I forgot my password.  I went to retrieve it and it says that the password token to my email DOES NOT WORK!!!  I dont understand why I cant get it to work.  I have been locked out of my account for 2 days now.  There is no way to talk to a real human to resolve this issue so I am screwed.  ar-donkey is my log in name. If anyone can help me get it working I would be very grateful.  By the way I am locked out of my account until midnight tonight!

Re: Forgot password didn`t recognise my email

I was afraid of this.  I am required to seach and read thousands of wasted pages to find some way to get back into my account.  I see this ending in legal action for theft of personal information.

can you please specify the exact error message or notification being displayed when you were trying to request for a new password?  On the other hand, if you have a billing or purchase history in the last 6 months, you can get a new password without the need of the registered email address.
