| Updated on March 27, 2024

Have you also forgotten your Hulu account password? Do not worry, it is easy to recover, and you are not alone who just keeps forgetting its password! There are thousands of people on the internet searching ‘forgot Hulu password’ and there are even more people who are searching for ways to reset it.

‘Forgot Password?’ option, which is usually present in every login form, was introduced to assist people in getting into their accounts when they forgot the password to it. Nowadays, knowing that this option is present, people no longer bother to remember the password. 

Have you ever noticed the irony in this whole situation?

Whatever it is, I also don’t give my brain the ache of remembering the passwords. The same is the case with my Hulu account. Every time I log in to my Hulu account through its web app, I have to reset my password.

However, changing the password of the Hulu account is a bit different. Hulu has its dedicated page for dealing with ‘forgot password’ issues. Don’t you know about it? Read the below section to find out.

Have you Forgotten Your Hulu Password? 

Nothing can be worse than forgetting the password of your favourite streaming platform. It’s terrifying to admit that you will not be able to watch characters for whom you have developed so much liking, just because you have forgotten your account’s password.

Tip: Use closed captions and subtitles to better connect with the characters of shows and movies.

Nevertheless, I have got you covered.

You just have to follow the steps listed below to recover your Hulu password:

  1. First, you have to visit the Hulu Forgot Password page.
  1. After reaching there, you will see a text box where you have to enter the email address using which you have signed up for Hulu.
Enter your email address linked to your Hulu account
  1. Then, click on the Send Me a Reset Link button.
Click on the Send Me Reset Link button
  1. Thereafter, you will receive an email from Hulu that will contain the password reset link. You have to click on it.
  1. Now, you will be directed to the screen where you will get to change your Hulu password to a new one. Enter your new password there.
  1. Click on the Submit button.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Hulu password recovery email may take up to 15 minutes to reach the designated email address. Therefore, be patient if you didn’t receive it in the first few minutes.
  • The link for resetting the password in the recovery email remains active for only 3 hours. Therefore, if you don’t change your Hulu password by then, you have to again go through the whole process, so, it’s better to change it then and there.
  • However, if it’s above 15 minutes and still there is no sign of that email, then check your spam or trash folder. If it is not there, then refer to the ‘If the recovery mail is not received…’ section below.

If the Recovery Email is Not Received…

The first thing is that you need to make sure that there are no typos in the email address you have entered. If the typos are there, then Hulu will not recognize the email address, and obviously, you are not going to get any email.

However, if you have correctly entered the email address and still haven’t received the password recovery email from Hulu, then you can contact Hulu support. By visiting the link provided, you will be directed to their support page, where you will get their support number, and you can inform them that you have forgotten your Hulu account password and failed to recover it because you don’t receive the password reset email. Then, the customer support executive will walk you through the further process.

Sometimes, it may happen that the link you received in the password recovery email from Hulu, does not work. It can be due to some simple network problem, or the link might be expired by the time you access it. Whatever be the reason, do not worry, Hulu suggests some simple troubleshooting methods that can resolve the issue, jotted down here are these:

  • Close the browser window, open it again, and now try to access the link.
  • Clear the browsing data or cookies and cache files from your browser.
  • Switch to a supported browser. Browsers in which Hulu works best are Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.

However, if the Hulu password reset link still does not work, then go through the password recovery process again and get a new link.

How to Get Your Hulu Password Changed?

Sometimes, sharing your streaming platform, like Hulu, password with your friends can backfire on you. How? As you know, Hulu has a screen sharing limit, so if your Hulu account details are shared with a number of people and all decided to watch at the same time, then it can happen that you may not get to access the Hulu account which is yours because the maximum limit is already reached. 

This usually happens when you share your Hulu password with your friends, and they share it with their friends.

It has often happened to me, and what I do is change the password of my Hulu account, and just go by saying ‘I haven’t redeemed my subscription plan’ . Mean or not, but I need my ‘Me time’ when I demand it.
