Trying to figure out how to access an email account you haven’t used in a while can be pretty tricky.
That’s why we decided to make it easier for you and create a step-by-step guide on how to access an email easily. Furthermore, we’ll walk you through the process of finding someone’s email address for different accounts and then accessing the account using that information.
Let’s get started!
Finding the email address of an Instagram account holder is pretty simple.
Just follow the steps below:
That’s it! You just successfully managed to find the email address of an Instagram user via Instagram.
Note: Remember that this method will only work if the person you’re trying to contact has their email address listed in their Instagram profile.
Finding someone’s email address on Facebook may be difficult, but not impossible. As a matter of fact, there are a few techniques you can use and achieve this.
Let’s have a look at those:
One method is to try and find the person’s email address in their profile information.
But, if it’s not, we’ll continue with a new method that can lead us to this information.
Sometimes, the best thing to do is to use one of the many email search software to look for information about a specific person.
Luckily, in today’s modern world, we leave all sorts of info all over the internet, i.e., traces. Therefore, these are gathered as public data that anyone can access with the right tools and knowledge.
Try and find an email address by using one of the most widely known email search tools:
We’ll try with the Name option.
Note: Even if you find an email address, you need to know that it may not be active.
If you’re trying to find someone’s iCloud email address, there are methods you can try. Though iCloud doesn’t make this easy to do, it is possible.
One of the most useful Apple tools is The AnyUnlock iCloud Activation Unlocker, which is especially handy when recovering or finding your Apple ID.
What’s more, AnyUnlock can help you find your or someone’s Apple ID email address in a matter of seconds using simple clicks. This is especially advantageous when someone forgets their Apple ID on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and cannot find the email address any other way.
Are you looking to find someone’s email address that’s linked to their Snapchat app? Alright, you can do this. In fact, there are a few methods you can try.
Not everyone leaves this kind of info on their Snapchat profile – but, hey! Who knows, you might be in luck – it’s worth the try.
Unfortunately, this contact hasn’t shared any email address info.
Note: In the Snapchat bio, you can usually find the email addresses of influencers. They tend to leave this info to be quickly contacted by brands and businesses.
All of a sudden, you need access to an old forgotten email. What now?!
Stay calm – there are ways to gain access to an old email account. For instance, you can try the following:
#1 One method is to try and find the account information in your old records. Try looking through old credit card statements or bank records to see if you can find any mention of the account. Or, maybe you can scroll down in your inbox and see if you used a different email address from the current one for subscriptions or online orders.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to find the account this way. It’s also possible that the provider has deleted the account because of prolonged inactivity.
#2 Can you at least recall what email service provider you used with the old account?
#3 Since you remember which email provider you used for your old account, open their official support page. Once you’re on the page, you can ask for help to assist you in finding your old credentials.
Most probably, to achieve this, they might ask the following questions:
Once you provide all the above info, just follow the (next) instructions given by your email provider support agent and be patient.
#4 We already mentioned that you could search for your name/last name inside your email and see if anything shows up. However, there is another place where you might feel lucky and come across an old email of yours.
Why not try type in an email you remember or an old username of some account in various browsers?
To go big and wide, you can type in this info in the following browsers:
We’re sure you came across a ‘not so reliable’ email at some point, right? Well, instead of wondering whether an email is legit or fake, there are specific things that can give out a fake email among original ones.
Note: If you are to receive an email from a legitimate company – they’ll use different emails, like email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
Domains that look alike or are simply similar to the original domain can be quite the trap. Therefore, be on the lookout for spelling mistakes in emails. For example: macys.com —> rnacys.com; wallmart.com —> wal1mart.com; cloudflare.com —> cloudfiare.com, etc.
Tip: The letters/number in red are the “trick,” i.e., the fake domains.
Your email address is in the Bcc field of other emails instead of being in the recipient’s field – strange, right?!
Yes, this might not be a huge deal, but don’t you think that companies and organizations don’t pay attention to these tiny details? Of course, they do!
So, something like this is a red flag that someone is trying to scam you.
The surprise, empathy, or shock card is one of the book’s oldest tricks. And, apparently, still good to use.
We bet that out of nowhere, you’ve received at least once that you’re the lucky winner of a contest you never participated in or that your card needs to be verified due to updated credentials, etc.
All of the above are nothing but scam mails that, once you interact with, you risk being ‘robbed away’ from your data (credit card number, location, last name, etc.).
Note: You shouldn’t open or reply to such emails.
If you’re unsure whether an email from a company is legitimate, you can always call/ email the company and ask.
In today’s world, email is still a powerful communication tool – obviously.
And often, it’s unavoidable for us not to use an email to shop, order, sign up, or pay for something online. What’s more, sometimes we badly need to access an old email account or find someone’s iCloud email address, for example.
As you’ve read, there are ways and methods to go about it and dig them out even after months or a year of inactivity on a specific email. However, we, too, can be the victims of cybercriminals; therefore, we got you covered with some of the most common tricks to keep an eye on.
We hope this article has helped you understand how to access someone’s email account or your long-forgotten one.
