All the Possible Methods to Recover Hacked Twitter Account

| Updated on February 13, 2024

Twitter is one of the leading social media platforms; it is the online platform that people use to express their views or opinions on a topic. You get all the information about the latest trends and news from Twitter only. Most of the celebrities and famous personalities do connect with people through their Twitter handle. Due to all this, Twitter accounts have become more vulnerable to hacking and that’s why it has become more important to secure your Twitter account.

Unfortunately, if you have got your Twitter account hacked, this blog will talk about all the possible ways to get back your Twitter account.

Before that, let me tell you that when someone tries to hack your account they either know your password or they try to reset it if they have access to your email address or phone number. So you need to keep an eye on that. Hence, whenever you receive an email that if you requested a password reset for your account, click on this button, you need to first see if the email is from the official Twitter email address or someone is trying to scam you.

Next, if you haven’t requested a password reset, first delete the email that you have received and quickly secure your email address by changing its password so that the hacker loses access to your email address as well as to your Twitter account.

Click on ‘Reset Password’ option to request a password reset for your hacked Twitter account

In case, your Twitter password has got changed by the hacker, here are the options you have:

1. Recover your Twitter Account Using Email Address or Phone Number

  • Go to www.twitter.com and click on ‘Log In’
  • Then click on ‘Forgot Password’
  • Enter your Twitter username, email, or phone number; click on ‘Search’
  • Select one of the following options and then click ‘Next’:
  • Get the code on your phone number
  • Get the code on your email address
  • Enter the code that you have received and then you will be allowed to reset the password to secure your Twitter account.

2. Recover your Twitter Account Without Using your Phone Number or Email Address

This could also happen that the hacker has changed your recovery email address and phone number and now you are not able to reset the password, here is what you need to do in that case:

  • Go to www.twitter.com and click on ‘Log In’
  • Then click on ‘Forgot Password’
  • Enter your Twitter username, email, or phone number; click on ‘Search’
  • You will get two options:
  1. Get the code on your phone number
  2. Get the code on your email address

Click on ‘Don’t have access to these?’

  • You will get a Twitter form to fill up:
  1. Select the issue that you are facing 
  2. In the next blank, describe your issue i.e. I believe my account is hacked or compromised.
  3. Scroll down and you will see another form that you have to fill with the required information:
  • Enter your Twitter Username
  • Enter your email address that is not hacked and you can access it 
  • Next, explain the issue that you are facing, DO NOT enter any of your personal information there such as your password, address, or phone number
  • Click on ‘Submit’ and wait for Twitter’s response.
  • When you receive an email from Twitter, follow the instructions provided in it and this will help you get your hacked Twitter account back.
