If you forgot your Sling TV password, it is possible to recover it and gain access back to your account. If you have ever lost any other password or login details, the most obvious solution is usually to contact the customer support and to change your password. Sling TV is different. If a hacker has access to your Sling TV password, they can continue to use it even after you change the password. You, therefore, have to do much more than just changing your password to recover your account.

How to Know Your Account is Hacked

While using your Sling TV account, you may notice that there are unknown devices on your device list. Go to the SlingTV profile on the website and check the number of authorized devices. If there are more than what you authorized, you have definitely been hacked.

If a friend or family member figured out your Sling TV account, they may have access to your account. They may use their devices to get into your account even after you change the password.

If your device is stolen while you are logged in to your account, you have good reason to suspect that it may be hacked.

Unfortunately, Sling TV can't do anything to the suspects. They may be unable to log the hackers out or deactivate the account. While it may sound like a hopeless situation, it is always a good idea to contact the support team. They may be able to help.

Another way to know that your account has been hacked is if you receive an email saying that your service has been activated. If a hacker has access to your account, your account may be charged. Your subscription may be canceled soon after you receive the email notification. It will be impossible to continue enjoying your SlingTV.

Changing Your password

The first step towards recovering your account is resetting the password. You must have access to the email address on your profile. If you do not remember your username, the customer support team may help you establish the email address that is listed on your profile. On your login option, enter the option 'Forgot your Password' and request a reset link.

If a hacker is already logged in to your account, they will stay logged in even if you change your password. Unless you contact them for help, Sling TV will not automatically log your account out of other devices.

You should contact the customer support team and request them to log your account of other devices. The hacker won't get access to your account as they won't have your new password. Your new password should be strong and unique.

Change the password of your email address before you begin the recovery process. If your hacker has access to your email address, they can easily get your new password.

Changing Your Sling Account Email

1. Go to your Sling TV account and log in if you are not already logged in

2. Click the option 'Change email address,'

3. Enter your new email address and password

Getting a New Password

According to Sling TV, the most effective solution for a compromised account is opening a new one. This should be the final option when all else fails.

Sling TV's customer support team is always ready to help you when you have trouble accessing your account. If your attempts to change your password are unsuccessful, they can always help you. Even though there is no guarantee that they can help you log your account out of other devices, they may help you. The customer support team may also provide you with tips to avoid future problems.
