How to Unlock Twitter Account without Email

Have you lost access to your email and now you cannot unlock the Twitter account?

When your Twitter account is locked, the first measure taken by Twitter to help you unlock is to send you an email with all the steps to unlock the Twitter account.

Either you can unlock using your email or phone number.

If you’ve been stuck in a similar problem, with this article, we will help you find ways to unlock your Twitter account when you cannot access your email.

Methods To Recover Twitter Account Without Email:

Many times, you might be logged in to your Twitter app on your phone even when you can’t log in using another device. If this is the situation, you still have the option to change your email using your phone.

To change your email, go to “Settings and Privacy” -> “Account” -> “Email” to update it. Twitter will send you a confirmation mail on your new email before confirming the change.

Twitter will also send an email to your previous email updating about the change. This helps Twitter protect your account if someone tries to change your email without your authority.

Have you added your phone number while creating your Twitter account and have access to it? Enter your phone number on the password reset page. Twitter will send you an OTP on your mobile that you can use to unlock your account.

Once logged in, make sure to change your email. Use the email you currently have access to so there are no issues in the future.

If you’ve also lost access to your phone number, please follow this article on unlocking the Twitter account without a phone number. Please note that you need access to either your email or phone number to get access to your Twitter account. If you don’t have any, Twitter cannot verify your account in any way.

If you can’t access the email associated with your Twitter account, your email provider can help you regain access. Contact your email provider and ask them about the process of recovering your email.

You can also follow the process listed by your email provider to recover your account. For example, a quick search will help you know the process to recover your Gmail account.

Recovering your email account is the best option if you are not logged in on any other device and you have lost access to your phone number too.
