Login Issues with Hulu

Hulu is one of the largely preferred video-on-demand services with a lot of useful features, but it doesn’t give you any assurance that you will not encounter any issues while using this service.

Most of the Hulu users have complained about not being able to log in due to multiple reasons. If you are one of them, the following list of Hulu login issues along with their solutions will surely help you out:

1. Incorrect Login Credentials

This error message- ‘Your login is invalid. Please try again’ is enough to tell the story. This message appears when you have entered incorrect login credentials, i.e. either ‘email address’ or ‘password’.

First of all, manually ensure that you have typed the correct email address or password.

If you pay for Hulu using a third-party app such as Amazon, Apple, Roku, Spotify, etc., then you should try logging in using the email address and password that you use for their services. Your login credentials for Hulu may be the same as these third-party services.

Apart from that, you can try to recover your email address or reset your Hulu password as per your situation using the information given further.

If you have forgotten the email address that you have used to log in to your Hulu account, you can use Hulu’s Official Account Recovery Toolhttps://auth.hulu.com/account_recovery

You will be given three attempts to enter the requested information correctly and if you are able to get it right, your login email address will be revealed to you.

  • Go to their ‘Forgot Password’ tool to start the process.
  • Enter your email address linked to Hulu and click on ‘Send me a Reset Link’
Go to the Hulu’s Forgot Password tool, enter your email address and click on ‘Send me a Reset Link'
  • Click on the link and follow the on-screen instructions to reset your Hulu account password.


Make sure to wait for 15 minutes to receive the email and also check your junk and spam folders. The password link expires after 3 hours, so make sure to reset the password quickly as soon as you receive the link.
