I do not know/remember my Recovery Key

Post by felipeoriani » Wed Jun 24, 2015 12:45 pm

Hello guys,

I've already done a register in the project euler website and I would like to check out some results I've developed here.
The point is, that I created an account with the same username as this forum: felipeoriani, and I lost my password.
When I try to recovery it, the website ask me about a Recovery Key which I don't have.

How can I recovery my account? Is there any other ways? I would like to use the same login, not to create another one.

Thank you.

As you hadn't solved any problems I deleted the account. So you can register again under the same name.
The account recovery key you have to generate yourself: to do so go to the account tab.
Next time please make a note of your password. The password/account recovery key are the only ways you can get access to the account. We can't do it for you.

Hello,

I'm facing the same problem, I lost my password, my former account was "luismo", I'm cuban and it's been long time ago since I don't log in this website, since I couldn't login with my previous credentials, I created a new one: luismo88, I'm willing to recover "luismo" (my progress and all) and if possible delete this one.

Thanks in advance

You generated your recovery key on Sat, 25 Mar 2017, 23:56.30.
The only way to recover your account is to find back this key. I assume that you saved it somewhere.
If you don't find it back, your account is lost.

You can delete your account yourself. Just select Account at the top of the projecteuler.net site, scroll down to the Maintenance Box and choose Delete Account (being logged into the right one :wink:)
