Forgot Your Kinja Password? Here’s How To Recover It Hassle-Free!

If you've made a burner account with Kinja, it's possible that you've forgotten the password or burner key associated with that account. This means that you won't be able to comment on sites such as Deadspin, Jezebel, The AV Club, Kotaku, The Root, and more. Resetting your Kinja password can be a complicated process to navigate, but that's where DoNotPay comes in. As the world's first AI Consumer Champion, DoNotPay can help you and get right back to commenting on the websites you love.

How to Recover Your Kinja Password By Yourself

Kinja certainly doesn't make it easy to recover a forgotten password! While most websites have a "Forgot My Password" link on their login page, Kinja uses a confusing system of "burner keys" instead. They don't store passwords at all, meaning that you have to make a note of the burner key they give you when you first sign up. Some people report not seeing the burner key at all when they first create a Kinja burner account, meaning that they can't log back in at all. There are very few things you can do in this situation.

What Is a Kinja Burner Account?

A burner account on Kinja allows you to follow Kinja writers, comment on blogs and websites, and receive comment notifications on Kinja without creating an account that's tied to your email address or other social media accounts. This is an excellent way to comment anonymously while still claiming your words, as well as a way to follow bloggers you like.

To create a Kinja burner account, go to and click the blue "person" icon in the upper right corner. Then click the "connect anonymously with a burner account" link and follow the given instructions on that page.

What Happens if You Can't Reset Your Kinja Password?

If you can't reset your Kinja password or remember your burner key, you have a few options.

  1. Sign up for a Kinja account using your Google, Facebook, or Twitter account. This allows you to log in using those account credentials, meaning you don't have to remember your burner key or create a new password at all.
  2. Contact @KinjaHelp on Twitter. This account is not actively tweeting, but they do respond to direct messages.
  3. Go to the Support page for the website you want to comment on and talk to the website's support staff.
