Login to the Forum

If I try to login to the Xfinity Forum I get a page that already has my name and email address and Old Forum name. When I check the Agree to Terms box I get an error message that "Email Already Exist Please Use a Different Email Address. Then I am stuck on that page no matter what I do. I cleared my computer and no change. For the first time I am able to get to this page. If I click to sign in I go to the sign in page I mentioned above.

Greetings, @Terry0327! Thanks so much for taking a moment out of your busy day to leave a post on our community forum. I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with your login, but you have definitely come to the right place for assistance.

 

Are you currently signed in with your correct and/or preferred email address, or were you wanting to sign in here with a different email address?

 

Have you tried using an incognito browser? That usually bypasses all the cache errors, so your old login details won't appear in the sign in fields.

Still cannot sign in to the Forun.. If I try to Login in it takes me to a Registration Page and will not allow me past that. My account needs to be reset.

For some reason it allows me to post every now and then. Its the same thing of 4 different computers in my house.

I'm sorry to hear that you're still unable to sign into the Forums, @Terry0327! From the original post, I just want to clarify something; is this username that you're currently using the one that you want to be signed in under?

Yes, Terry0327. This is my 3rd attempt to post this. It allows me to post every now and then.

Sometime I can post but can never login. It always takes to the registration page and stops there.

Nothing works for me either.  Seems like someone at Xfinity could reset the user name. Mine does the same thing on all computers in my home. Four of them.

@Terry0327 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that you are experiencing when attempting to log into the Xfinity Forum. After initially accessing the Xfinity Forum, to sign into your current 'Terry0327' profile you will need to click the Sign In option in the upper right corner of the screen. 

Media preview

From there you will see a Comcast Single-Sign On login screen.

You will need to use the email and password that you have associated with this profile. Once entered click the Sign In option. Since your profile is clearly active it should take you back to the forum and you will be logged into your 'Terry0327' profile. Unfortunately, if you have a Pop-Up Blocker or any other feature that prevents this login screen from displaying you could trigger a forum registration page instead. On that page you will see options to choose a username and agree to our forum guidelines.

If this is what you are seeing, please check to see if your pop-up blockers are disabled. If after disabling any pop-up blocker you are still experiencing issues, please send me a direct message and we can investigate further. 

We look forward to hearing back from you.

(first time visiting since before the major website redesign) 

..how do I change the email back to my preferred AOL one?? 

At least my username is still intact, tho my activity is sparse. 

The issue is on the "Profile Settings" page, [email] is greyed out. 

Am I stuck with the comcastnet email on this forums acct forever? 

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled Forums: forced to reregister with comcastnet email..

We sincerely appreciate you posting your question and apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing. If your aol email is associated with your active account, you should be able to access that account when clicking the “Sign In” option in the Xfinity Forum. If that email is associate with an old/in-active account you will not be able to use it to access the forum. If you do not remember your password associated with that email when attempting to login to the forum, you will need to use the “Forgot Password” option when you see the login screen.

If you are still having issues accessing the other profile feel free to share that username and we will do all we can to investigate further.

Nothing is old or inactive, this username last had activity on it back in January. My preferred email was working with it then. 

But returning now, there were no options at all to sign-in with only a regular email & password, it just went straight to Xfinity itself to login with an ~Xfinity acct. Literally - clicking on the "sign in" link popped open a window to log into Xfinity's website first.

So I had to login with my main acct to get back to my original username. But then it was nagging me to "register" & the email box was always greyed out & filled with my comcastnet email. I just don't use that for anything (nice to have as a backup "just in case" tho) so I want this acct to use my AOL one instead. It's also marked as my preferred email for the Xfinity acct too, so it's weird that the forums' email infoboxes are fully locked & not changeable here. Shdnt the forums ~match the acct's preferred email address??

We apologize you continue to experience issues. Can you please provide what username that you are having issues accessing?

Please note, due to Comcast SSO, there is no way to change an email address or log in with an email address/password that is not associated with your Xfinity account. 

Additionally, sharing any personal information including email addresses in posts or in images, is a violation of our Xfinity Forum Guidelines. This ensures we are able to retain the privacy of your personal information and account. 

We look forward to hearing back from you. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

I moved to another address 4 weeks ago. I have been not able to access my account or made payments. I addition they have the wrong address of my house. I have been not able to make payments because I cannot access my account and they want to disconnect me and charged for late payments.

I Xfinity disconnect my account, I will not able to work (I work from home, and my son cannot connect to the school district- he study from home)

Complete mess.  I cannot access  my account, I am not able to pay and THEY HAVE MY WRONG ADDRESS>

@marcomeneses When you moved, if you transferred your service, you were given a new account number, and probably a new username to login with.

To find your Primary user ID, use the Lookup Tool: https://idm.xfinity.com/myaccount/lookup
 
Just enter the requested information and you will see a listing of all the user ID's on your account, one of which will be the Primary ID.
If that doesn't work you will need to call and ask what your new account number is and how to login.
