How do I reactivate my Vine account?

Deactivated accounts can be reactivated within 30 days of deactivation by logging in using your previous credentials. Make sure to log in using an email address or Twitter handle, depending on which you chose to create an account with.

Why can’t I log in after deactivating my Twitter account?

If you signed up for Vine using a Twitter account and do not have an email address associated with the account, you will not be able to log in to your Vine account if the Twitter account has been deactivated. It is best to update your settings with your current Twitter account or email address before deactivating the Twitter account you use to log in with.

If you deactivated the Twitter account associated with your Vine account before adding your new credentials, you will have to reactivate your Twitter account in order to login. You can find instructions for reactivating your Twitter account here.

If it's been more than 30 days since you deactivated your Twitter account, it has been permanently removed. Unfortunately, if this is the case, we are unable to further assist you.
