Gaining Access to Your Old Myspace Profile

The "New" Myspace launched a few weeks ago and in doing so, they ejected everyone's old Myspace profile. I guess they figured no one would care if they burned their proverbial internet ghost town to the ground and started over. They apparently didn't account for those long-time users who still wanted to keep all that old stuff, even if they didn't check back regularly. Old Myspace blogs? Gone. Old Myspace correspondence? Toast. Old Myspace Photos? These you can get back - if you know how to get into your old account.

Those users who passed away prior to the fall of Myspace had accounts that were later memorialized by loved ones – only to have these irreplaceable memories wiped out with the recent “relaunch” of the social network.

There is, at the very least, a way to get back your old photos. See here for instructions.

But what if you can’t get into your old account at all? Some people have been using the same login information for years, even using old email accounts that they no longer own, simply because it was easier to leave things as they were. And these people can’t even get into Myspace in order to get back those old pics.

If you want to get into Myspace and can’t access your old email account there is a way to still get into your old Myspace account.

There is a rather obscure featured called the Myspace “Declaration of Ownership” which is a form you can fill out which allows you to claim your old profile, even if you can’t get into the old email address used to set it up or previously log in.

Beware that they will ask for some personal info. You’ll also need to know your old user name, date of birth used, zip code used, name used, and city/state used when signing up for it.

I’ve been playing around with the New Myspace. It’s pretty nice, and boasts an absolutely massive music library. I just wonder if it’s too little, way too late.

    I have been waiting 2 months for them to send me my blogs. There is no contact info for the new myspace. I hope it fails.

    I have a similar story, my father passed away a few years ago and we had some great conversations on myspace for a while. . . really sad that i’ll never be able to look back on them. Also for nostalgia’s sake, some interesting conversations with old love interests. . . sigh. . .

  • kritikosman

    The whole thing was done poorly and was a real disservice to Myspace users. Shame. Although, if one digs deeply, some of the old information can be retrieved.

  • dgomanim

    Would a myspace account from say 2008-09 still be up? I remember my old email however when I tried to get it back yahoo said it has been de-activated and recycled. If I make a new myspace and look my old self would I still be able to find it? Lol is there any hope..

  • macygrace123

    url??? What URL?? We never had a url log in! I used the SAME password and email I had for my old myspace and it STILL WOULDN’T LET ME LOGIN! When ever I want to change my password it ask for my ‘url’ the old myspace never went by that so IDK!
    My password and email NEVER changed so i just think they deleted all our accounts and photos in all brutal honesty.

    WOW. They had my email…Why not let us know ‘hey we’re remodeling myspace and you need to get your stuff!’

    Middle school photo’s, conversations, memories of ppl I can’t/don’t talk to anymore…GONE! and it seems like there’s nothing that can be done about it. If you don’t have ur old url (which most of us don’t remember/ never had ) then ur screwed.

    My space was losing to facebook and twitter and so they wanted to get more views by remodeling. BIG MISTAKE, ur getting even less views now.

    I’m just so beside myself that so many photos are gone and I can never get them back…WOW.

    I can’t found my profile

  • Criss

    I didn’t have access to my old account that I used @hotmail.com now my email that I use is @gmail.com so I was confused when I couldn’t access my account. Now that I had submitted a form with what seems to be the correct info should I be able to retrieve my account and reset my password & username?

    • I would think so, although it’s been a couple of years since I retrieved mine. Let me know what happens either way!

  • Roderick Jones

    I feel the same way u do,off n I miss my old myspace account,i remember all my old information except for my user name,if I try too renew my profile maybe I can get my old friends I have on there that u haven’t connected in a while I’m thinking too myself call me crazy.

  • Jordan

    I don’t have any information to my myspace but want to get on and look at old pictures please help!

  • Therese Murrell

    I was able to get some of my myspace photos from photobucket. Remember, we couldn’t just post a photo like we do now, we had to get a url or something to post it to myspace. hope this helps someone.

    • helen
