Forgot your Panoramio Password?


Hi Panoramio Community,

We have modified:
www.panoramio.com/forgot_password
so you can now use it to reset your password by entering:

1. Your Email Address Associated to the Account or...
2. The user_id of your Panoramio Account

If you forgot your password, go to the Forgot your password? form and introduce the Email address associated to your Panoramio account in the Email address text box.
If you forgot your registered email address you can also enter your user_id in the Email address text box.

Your user_id is the number you can see in the URL of Panoramio when you are visiting your user page. As an example if you visit http://www.panoramio.com/user/3616830 the user_id is 3616830

If you still do not remember your user_id, you can go to Google Earth or Google Maps and look for a photo you uploaded. If you open the photo in a browser you will have a URL similar to http://www.panoramio.com/photo/61847651 Under the photo you will see your username. If you click on it you will see that the URL changes to:
http://www.panoramio.com/user/3616830?with_photo_id=61847651
The first number is the user_id.

After entering the Email address or the user_id in the Forgot your password? form, we will send an email to the email address associated to the Panoramio account with a link to reset the password. We can only help if you have access to the email address associated to your Panoramio account.

I hope this helps in case you miss your Panoramio password.
