How to update your password and log in

Democratic Underground was vandalized by a hacker on election day, forcing us to take the site offline. We spent a week performing a security review of our software, and then opened the site up to Star Members only while we continued to test our servers and software. Now, Democratic Underground is open again to all visitors.


If you have not logged in since the hack, you must update your password

We do not believe that member passwords were compromised during the hack, but out of an abundance of caution we are asking all of our members to change their passwords before logging in. To verify that you are the person responsible for your account, you will need to provide the username and email address associated with your DU account. After you have entered your username and email address, you will be emailed a temporary password along with instructions to log in to the site. After logging in, you will be prompted to select a new password of your choice.


Troubleshooting

If you have received your temporary password and you want to log in, click here.

If you do not remember your username, click here.

If you no longer have access to the email address associated with your account, click here.

If you have exhausted all the other options and you are still having trouble, send an email to mail@democraticunderground.com for assistance.
