Getting hacked or losing access to your account can be both aggravating and frustrating.

Here's some tips on how to get you back into the Fields of Justice as fast as possible.

Help! I can't get to my account
There are a few different reasons you might not be able to login. If you’re having trouble accessing your account, make sure you've tried the following:

  • Double checking that you’re trying to log onto the correct server (https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/22201414-Separate-Servers).
  • Recovering your username (https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/22556125-Recovering-Your-Username/) through the email address associated with your account.
  • Recovering your password (https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/22613390-Recovering-Your-Password) by entering your username (not your Summoner name).

Recovering a Lost or Stolen Account
If you have followed the previous steps and still cannot recover your account, please Submit a ticket to Riot Support (http://support.leagueoflegends.com/anonymous_requests/new). When you do, make sure to provide the following information about the account you are trying to recover so that Riot may immediately start an investigation, and get you back to the Fields of Justice as quickly as possible:

  • Account Name (the name you use to log in)
  • Summoner Name (the name your friends see in-game)
  • The server you play on (NA, EU-West or EU-Nordic/East)
  • Creation date of the account (Month/Year)
  • Original email address used to register the account
  • Location you registered the account (City/State/Country)
  • Last IP address used to play League of Legends (http://www.whatismyip.com/) (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/redirect.php?do=verify&redirect_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.whatismyip.com%2F%2529%3A)
  • Any other people that have access to the account
  • How you came into possession of the account

Be Proactive
Account Security is an incredibly important task for everyone who plays online games. Here are a few tips on ways you can help protect your account:

  • Never post your Account Name(what you use to login), Password OR account E-mail where someone can see it.
  • Be careful what links you click on. Beware of free offer! Things seem too good to be true, usually are.
  • Get in the habit of changing your passwords, using longer passwords, and trying out different passwords for different types of accounts.
  • Remember, Riot Staff will never ask you for your password!
