Hi, i used to have an account with talktalk and kept my talktalk.net email address. The email account has been hacked. The revovery email is the same email im trying to access and the mobile number has been changed from my number to a number i dont recognise. Can i still gain access if i dont have an account with Talk Talk?
Yes you can recover access. I'll need to alert TalkTalk to verify you as the registered user and to secure the mailbox and then to set you up with new Reset details so you can set a new ultra-strong password.
In the meantime, please update your Community Profile Personal Information (Click here) to include your name, current contact 'phone numbers and address with postcode (location) then scroll down to Private notes and add the email address and Save changes.
A TalkTalk Community Team member prefixed with OCE_ will reply to this thread and then Community Personal Message you to verify the registered email user details; so be prepared to provide on request to an OCE_ only:
When verified, the password will be changed and Reset details set up allowing you to set your own password via the Forgotten your Password journey. Make sure the password is ultra-strong and unique to the mailbox.
Are you aware of TalkTalk Mail Plus? It's the way for you to keep your email address active when no longer a TalkTalk Consumer customer.
Hi Julies_6898, I can get the password reset for you. I've sent you a personal message to obtain the necessary information.
Have the Reset details been set up allowing you to set your own password via the Forgotten your Password journey?
I'm only too aware that we haven't had TalkTalk support for email and webmail for over a week now.
The UK support team that we can normally rely on for support during weekday office hours has been redeployed to help vulnerable and key workers remain connected to broadband and phone services. That team is now working 7 days a week from early morning to late evening.
No i haven’t been sent them yet. I have replied to the private message but not heard back yet. I can’t access my Amazon account so can’t use my Alexa so was just wondering how long it would take to get a reply. I realise it will be a very busy time for all, i will wait for my reply.
Just to claify. You aren't sent anything. The Reset details - your alternative email address and mobile number are set up by TalkTalk at their end. All you do is select the Forgotten my password? link and see if you recognise your alternative email address and mobile from the hints shown. (options 2 and 3)
If there's just the option of sending a reset to the mail account you cannot access then obviously the team didn't get around to setting that up.
I'm very sorry for the delay in getting back to you but i've just had confirmation that this error has been resolved, could you re-test and let me know once you've got access to your mailbox.
