Change Your Password

The first step is to change your password. Use the Depop Password Reset page to send yourself a new password reset email. If the hacker hasn't changed your account email address yet, this will work. By changing your password, the hacker won't be able to get back in.

When you get the email, make a new and creative password that the hacker can't possibly know.

Hint: Try an acronym that is fun and easy to remember instead of a word or phrase. Ex: "It's so fashionable to have great password security" becomes "i5f2hgP$". Hackers will never guess it, but you'll remember it every time.

Let Depop Know There's a Hacker on the Loose

Head over to the Depop Support page and enter a ticket letting them know your account was hacked. The admins can help you take care of any unauthorized activity or purchases that were made by the hacker before you got your account back.

Contact Your Bank

  9. Attach any screenshots that may help prove the hack and/or your account ownership
  10. Submit the report

After you submit the report, it may take several days for Depop to verify your account ownership and get the account back to you. In the meantime, notify your bank so that no purchases can be made on your connected cards.
