How to Reactivate a Deactivated X Account

If you have accidentally or wrongfully deactivated your X account and it’s been less than 30 days since you deactivated it, you can still reactivate your account. Follow these steps to restore your X account:

  1. Open the X app on your smartphone or open x.com/login on your computer.
  1. Enter your login credentials (username or email address and password) to log in.
  1. Before signing in, you’ll see a notice asking you to confirm if you want to reactivate your account.
  1. If you decide to reactivate your account, you’ll be directed to your Home timeline. Keep in mind that posts, followers, likes, and other elements might require some time to be fully restored.

If you encounter difficulties with reactivating your account, there are several reasons why you may be unable to reactivate your account using this method:

  • If you don’t remember your password, contact X support, and they may be able to assist you with reactivating your account. When you get your account reactivated, you will be able to request a password reset email. Be sure to contact them using the email address associated with your account.
  • Some users’ data on X do not immediately display their previous numbers during reactivation. Don’t worry about the delay, these elements will be fully restored within 24 hours of reactivation. If it has been more than 48 hours and your counts have not been restored, feel free to reach out to the support team for assistance.
  • If it has been more than 30 days since you deleted your X account, you will not be able to reactivate your account.
