Logging in to your Mailchimp account may face a plethora of obstacles. You might have problems with your account status or login credentials, or perhaps your browser settings and network connection urgently requires your attention.

This write-up educates you on what kinds of issues you can encounter while logging in to Mailchimp and provides you with practical solutions to address them.

Be informed that Mailchimp only allows ten login attempts for security reasons. If you encounter issues logging in with your username or password, use the "Forgot Username?" or "Forgot Password?" tabs on the login page to request a username or password reset. The "Recover Username" option immediately sends your username to your registered email, while the "Reset Password" option sends an email that lets you reset your password. If you experience difficulty accessing the email associated with your account, you can contact the support team.

Be sure your username and password are properly formatted; user credentials are case-sensitive, and spaces matter – incorrect capitalization or extra spaces could make logging in challenging.

If you created your Mailchimp account via G Suite, you'll need to log in via G Suite or set up a username and password before attempting to log in through Mailchimp.

For security purposes, Mailchimp prompts you to complete an extra identity verification step via a security challenge when you log in to your account from an unrecognized device. Depending on your settings, this may involve your security questions, two-factor authentication, SMS, or an email verification code. This security feature ensures that no unauthorized person gains access to your account.

Two-factor authentication is one of the mechanisms designed to secure your Mailchimp data. Once you activate an authenticator app in your Mailchimp account, it generates a unique passcode for every login attempt requiring an input of the code before access.

You can rely on the authenticator app on your mobile device to get a new passcode each time you log in to Mailchimp. If your passcode gets rejected, take advantage of the troubleshooting steps.

Ensure that the auto-generated passcode is for your Mailchimp account and that the authenticator passcodes are valid for 30 seconds after being generated. Always use a valid authenticator passcode for an error-less login. Suppose, along the line, you lose your mobile device, use the backup code provided during the activation of two-factor authentication in your account to regain access to your account.

To log in, your account must be active. If you suspect an issue with your account status, check your email's inbox for the activation link that we sent after registering with you. By clicking the link, you activate your account, enabling you to log in successfully.

If you wish to access your Mailchimp account, it's important to verify that it's still active since accounts that remain inactive for 24 months are automatically shut down. Unfortunately, we're not able to reactivate closed accounts or make old usernames available again. If you have any questions regarding billing, please contact us.

While accessing Mailchimp via the web, browser and system settings may sometimes interfere and prevent you from logging in. The process of changing these settings will depend on the browser you're using. For more information on how to alter these settings on your browser, please visit the help site for your specific browser, such as: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, Microsoft Windows Edge.

If you suspect that your browser or system settings may be the cause of login issues, here are some potential remedies:

    Attempt logging in through another browser or a private browsing window. If you succeed in logging in via a different browser or private browsing window, attempt to clear all cache and cookies in the original browser and then try logging in again.

    Use the most up-to-date version of a compatible browser. Keep in mind that we cannot promise full support for beta or developer versions of your preferred browser. Please refer to our Minimum System Requirements for further guidance.

    Ensure that JavaScript is enabled. Mailchimp relies on JavaScript for many of its features, so make sure that JavaScript is enabled on your browser. Each browser handles JavaScript settings differently, so please check your browser's help site for more specific guidance.

    Ensure that cookies are enabled. Mailchimp uses session cookies to maintain website memory as you navigate from page to page. Like JavaScript, cookies settings are managed uniquely by each browser. Please consult your browser's help site for more in-depth instructions on enabling and clearing cookies.

    Remove any browser add-ons or plugins. Add-ons and plugins can prevent cookies from saving to your browser and therefore may inhibit successful login. To resolve this, please consult your browser's help site for instructions on removing add-ons and plugins.

    Double-check your clock and time zone settings. If you encounter an error message regarding the system clock, please verify and edit your system clock and time zone on your computer. Alternatively, set it to automatically synchronize with NTP.

    Due to the unpredictable nature of internet connections, sometimes you may be unexpectedly logged out of your Mailchimp account. Here are some tips to try in these situations:

    • Attempt to log in again.

    If your session is inactive for a certain period while you're logged in, you may see a timeout warning. Simply enter your password again and click the Resume Session button on the pop-up modal.

    Update your browser version.

    Ensure that you're using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome.

    Clear your cache and cookies.

    In some cases, clearing your browser's cache and cookies can be an effective solution. Cookies are used to track whether you're logged in to your account, and browsers store, or cache, information to rapidly load web pages. Over time, this information can accumulate and produce unexpected browsing behaviors until you clear the browser's cache and cookies.

    Make sure to check for any enabled extensions, plugins, or add-ons in your browser as they may interfere with your Mailchimp session, resulting in unexpected logouts. If you are experiencing frequent logouts, consider disabling them or using a different browser.

    To avoid having to constantly log in, select the "Stay Logged In" option on the Mailchimp login page and enable cookies in your web browser. We strive for a smooth and fast connection, but if you experience connectivity issues, there are some troubleshooting steps you can take.

    First, run a network speed test to check your connection speed. If it's lower than 1,000 kbps, you may experience slow or spotty performance. Consult with your IT department or internet service provider for ways to optimize your connection speed.

    If you are using Mailchimp on restricted WiFi, such as in a coffee shop, the connection may be blocked or subject to unwritten time limits. In this case, you should consider changing locations or using a VPN to bypass restrictions.

    Finally, if you have DSL service, a high MTU setting can cause issues with Mailchimp. You may want to try lowering your MTU settings or contacting your ISP for assistance.
