If I have gotten back into my account, what do I need to do next? If we were able to recover your Wattpad account without any issues, you should now be logged in with the email address associated with your profile. By default, all users of the application log into their profiles using their username as the password to help keep things secure 🙂
You can now access your settings and make sure that everything is the way you left it:
Click on your profile picture at the top of the page Click ” Settings” Locate and click on ” Email Password” to change this information Once you have changed your password, be sure to log out and back in again so that everything is updated. You can now also add or remove email addresses from being used for logging into your Wattpad account using the following steps: Find all emails that are currently associated with your profile Click on each email in turn to see if you want them associated with your account (Note: To disassociate a password, select ‘Remove’) When you’ve finished updating any passwords, tap on “Done”
If I cannot get back into my account, what do I need to do next?
If we’re not able to recover your account, then there will be two ways for you to regain access: 1) Use a recovery link that has been emailed to you by [email protected] . 2) Receive an email from [email protected] asking for your username and password so that we can bypass the login process. To find out what information you need in order to regain access, please contact us by clicking HERE (mobile users should use this link). In both cases, you may be required to provide us with some information as well: What is the email address associated with my Wattpad profile?
What is my current Wattpad username? Please note that these steps may vary depending on what email address you registered with us. We can only access accounts where the email address is associated with a username that matches the email account we have on file. For example, if your username is “yourname” and you registered with an email address of “[email protected]”, this means that there should be no password set to access the application (i.e., both are tied to the same email address).
If however your username was “yourname” but you used an email address of “[email protected]”, then you would need to provide us with those details because they do not match each other. If I am asked for my username/password but I know it is correct, what should I do? If you think that your account details are correct but the application is still asking for it, try to log out and then back in again. This usually solves most login issues. If however the above does not solve your issue please reach out to us and let us know if you are able to access other accounts on your device (e.g., email or social media).

The database of Wattpad’s approximately 273 million users was recently hacked. To combat the issue, on July 14th, the website made it compulsory for all visitors to reset their password so they can login again.The text above is not very clear due to odd sentence structure and poorly worded phrases: if you don’t know already…has been leaked/sold etc.
If you close your account, it will first be deactivated and then deleted. When your account is deleted, while it is not viewable on Wattpad, all of your comments and message board posts to the Wattpad community remain visible except that they will be anonymized.
