Account deactivation is a temporary hold on the editing permissions for a member's account.

An account may be deactivated:

  • By request if a member is planning an extended absence and suspects that their account password has been or could be compromised.
  • Automatically if our automated software identifies a suspicious pattern of edits from an IP address.
  • When a Mentor or Mediator has been unable to reach a member. If the member's WikiTree email is going to a spam folder, account deactivation may be the only way to reach them.

A Profile Sticker may be placed on the account to inform other members that the member is unavailable.

If your account has been deactivated and you don't know why, email for clarification.
