Steemit is proud to announce that account recovery is now available for community members whose accounts were compromised during the July 14 hack. To recover your account you will need to complete the following four steps:
- Click the "Account Recovery" link at the bottom of this update.
- Enter your old Password.
- Login via Facebook, Reddit, or provide your email address.
- Enter your old Password again, and then provide your New Password twice.
If you logged in with Facebook or Reddit your account will be immediately restored. Steemit will contact everyone else with additional confirmation instructions.
Steemit will be unable to recover your account unless you know a password that was valid within the past 30 days.
Please note that due to our implementation of enhanced blockchain security, new passwords must be 32 characters long. Ensure you use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols. We recommend using a password manager (pcmag.com).
Returning Stolen Steem and Steem Dollars
The Steemit team is finalizing its analysis of the cyber attack and determining exactly how much Steem and Steem Dollars were stolen from each account. Once we have completed the full account of lost tokens, we will reimburse every compromised user as promised.
Thank you all again for your ongoing patience and commitment to the Steemit community as we process your requests. We are profoundly grateful.
