Q: I can’t confirm my email address for my Level 1 account. I never got the email.
You should have received a Confirmation email from email@example.com with an account activation link. Please check both your inbox and spam folders for this email and visit the web portal for your email (for instance, Gmail.com versus a separate inbox app). Additionally, please ensure there aren't any filters enabled that may be directing our emails to a separate folder.

Q: I can’t login to my Level 1 account due to an “Invalid Password” error. How can I reset my password?
In order to reset your password, please visit the login page here and click on the password reset feature below the sign in field. Once you begin the procedure, an email will be sent to you with a link that allows you to set a new password.
The password reset procedure will fail if your IP address changes during this period. If the procedure is failing during your attempt, please disable any VPN, any anonymous browsing feature, and anything that could possibly cause your IP address to change unusually quickly.
Q: If I lose access to my Level 1 account, how can I regain access to it?
If you lose access to your account, our Support Team will do our best to help you regain access, but we cannot guarantee the resolution time or our ability to do so. Since Level 1 accounts have much less customer information, our means of confirming account ownership are limited and the recovery process can take several months. Read this article for tips on how to secure your account and prevent yourself from losing access to it. If you lose access to your account, please create a ticket and we’ll be happy to evaluate your case.
Q: I have a Poloniex account but I lost access to my email address. What can I do to change it?

Q: I created an account in the past but I have not been upgraded to Level 1. Can you upgrade my account to Level 1 now?

We will reach out to you through your Poloniex account email address when your account has been upgraded. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
Q: I am Level 2 and want my account to be Level 1. Can you do this and delete all of my identity verification data that I provided in the past?
