I have forgotten my password. Help?Top
If you no longer have the email we sent you with your password (and other account details) when you joined, there are a couple of ways to get it.
- Look up your own account
- Contact Customer Support to help you
Look up your own accountThe fastest way (as in 'immediate') to get your password is to head over to GMBill's account info page, enter your details (we need to know who you are before we go giving you your password - what if you were a hacker?!), and you can find your password (amongst other things) there. You'll need to know the number of the credit card you used to sign up with. In addition, you'll need to know either your subscriptionID (which would look something like GFF102030) or the email address you provided at the time you joined.
If you joined by CCBill, you can use their online support form. Most of our sales go through GMBill.com, so it's likely you did not join via CCBill.com.

Contact Customer Support
You can also contact our Customer Support team from the "Get Accounts Support" tab on our contact page.Note: We'll need to be able to both find your account, and verify that we're sending your password to you, and not some hacker. So help us out; give us as much of the following information as you're able:
- your subscriptionID
- your username
- your full name (as it was provided when you signed up)
- email address (as it was provided when you signed up)
- the last four digits of your credit card (just the last four digits, nothing else, please)
What does rebill mean?Top
"Rebill" means that at the end of you billing cycle, we'll automatically charge your card again for the next period. This is so you can enjoy continued access, without having to re-subscribe every month. If you don't like this idea look for the "no-rebill" subscriptions, or cancel your rebills right after you join.An example of rebilling is:
- You join on March 17th, for $24.95 (one month's access).
- On April 17th, you are rebilled another $24.95.
- On May 17th, another $24.95, and so on.
At any stage, you can cancel rebills. You'll have access up until the next rebill date, but you won't be rebilled - your access will cease.
Can I use a different credit card for rebills?Top
If you joined via GMBill.com, you may change your credit card. Head over to GMBill's account info page, and log in.
How do I cancel my rebills?Top
There are two ways to cancel your rebills:
- Go to Account. Under "Current Subscription" click "Cancel Rebills". If you do not see this option, either (a) your account is not of a rebilling type, (b) rebills have already been cancelled or (c) you joined via CCBill, and will need to cancel rebills with them directly.
- Go to the website of the billing agent you signed up with:
It's unlikely you joined by CCBill, but if so, log in and cancel rebills there.
When is my next rebill?Top
Go to the Account page, Current Subscription panel and check the listed date of your next rebill (or, when your account will lapse if youre are not on a rebilling account, or have already cancelled rebills.
How can I renew my account?Top
Our billing system does not have a renew function, so if you would like to change your subscription to one that rebills automatically, or if you wish to change the length of your rebill cycle from x month(s) to y month(s) you will need to let your current subscription lapse, then rejoin for the period and subscription you want access for.
We aren't able to do this ourselves on your behalf.
IMPORTANT: You must wait until your current subscription lapses before rejoining with a new credit card (GMBill will send you an email the minute it expires).
How do I change the credit card for my subscription?Top
If you joined via GMBill.com, log in and follow the simple instructions.
If you joined by CCBill, you are not able to change credit cards, you will need to cancel rebills on your current sub, let it lapse, then rejoin with your new card. You must wait until your current subscription lapses before rejoining with a new credit card (we'll send you an email the minute it expires).
How do I check my account status?Top
To stop your account from rebilling (ending your subscription with us when the time you've paid for runs out), you need to go to the billing company you joined through. Most likely, this was GMBill.com.
When you cancel your rebills, you will have access to the site for the remainder of the period you have paid for.
For some basic information on your account, go to your Account page here on our site.
For more detailed info, at GMB, you will need to supply the credit card number you used when you joined, and either the email address you used when you joined, or your six- or seven-digit subscription ID. They need this information to ensure it's you cancelling your account, and not someone else. Of course, they're not going to bill your credit card - they just need to identify you.
When you enter that info on the account info page, you will be able to:
- Cancel any future re-bills
- Check the status of your account
- Check your password if you have forgotten it
- See when you are due to be rebilled
- Change your listed email address
- Change your password
- Change the credit card used for billing
- Update your credit card expiry date and CVV2 info.
Note: Be sure you get the confirmation email before assuming your rebills have been cancelled. This email is sent within a few minutes in most cases. If you don't receive the email, go to the newspage from the home menu (not with your browser's back button), be sure you're logged in, and look to the right of 'Logged in as <you>'. If you don't see a line that says 'expires: <date>', contact us.
I think my account has been hacked, what do I do?Top
This is due to hackers all over the world using your username and password to access this site. We have advanced and aggressive software in place to combat this, as it is a serious problem that greatly increases our operating costs.
The system has never made a false positive suspension to date, so no matter how hard you find it to believe, your username and password have been "cracked" or discovered by hackers - else you'd not be seeing this page.
This happened because:
- You shared your password with friends (hopefully not likely) OR
- Hackers used software to "guess" the password (much more likely)
This did not happen because:
- You used your account from home, work, and a friend's house all on the same day
- You disconnected and reconnected several times from your ISP on the same day
- You use an ISP or connection method that utilises dynamic IPs (cable, DSL, AOL)
- You had several browsers or browser windows open to this site at the same time
- You used several different ISPs in the same day
These things could never cause your account to be listed as "hacked", and we consider these legitimate usage.
What can I do about it?
Head on over to our Accounts support page, fill in the info, and say in the notes that you received a message that your account was hacked. We will unlock your account, and issue you with a new password. You will not be able to access the site until we have done this. We'll always do it in under 24 hours, and often in under an hour.
Hackers use software to guess your password and username combination. Hackers use lists of tens of thousands of words at this website - and many others - to try to break in. They will get many "denied" errors, but after trying millions of combinations over several hours, they will come up with a list of access info pairs (ie, a username and a password that works).
Likelihood of this is greatly increased if you use:
- any dictionary word (in pretty much every language) ("sex", "secret")
- contractions of several words ("letmein", "goodporn")
- a proper noun (like "Schumacher", or "Ajax")
- a common letter-number combo (like "sk8ers" or "sexy69")
- the same password as you did with other sites (if it was simple)
Note: It is not your machine that has been hacked, it's ours! It was hacked because you chose a password that was too simple.
In future, for your username AND your password, please be sure to use a jumbled mixture of letters (upper and lowercase), and numbers, not a dictionary word, or a password you have used before. It says this very clearly when you are asked to enter a password when you sign up. Please do not use any punctuation characters.
Once hackers have this access information, they then post it to a site dedicated to hacked passwords, so other people can use them. Our software detects lots of people using the same access pair, and suspends your account.
Please be sure to keep your access info secret, and to not share it with anyone (including friends!). You have paid for your access to this site, not everyone else's! Ask them to sign up as well, to support the site so it can get better. Please.
We are able to maintain a low price for this website, and ease of use, by having these safeguards in place. If we did not, we would assign you a password and username, each ten characters long, random letters, numbers and punctuation, to gain access. Sure, then we'd have no more hacker problems, but you would be greatly inconvenienced. By letting you choose your own access info, we make it easier for you to be a member... but you have to help us a little as well!
Why has my account been suspended?Top
Your account has been Temporarily Suspended
Your account has been suspended for 120 minutes, as you have made eight unsuccessful login attempts, and to our security software it looks like someone trying to hack the system. We don't want hackers here, they are bad news for you, our paying member and us trying to run a fast and reliable website, so we have to do this, sorry.
This would most likely be because you entered your password (or less likely, your username) wrong eight times. That probably means that you don't know your password (or username). We recommend you copy and paste your username and password from the email we sent you (Not sure how to copy and paste? We have a tutorial!).
You can contact us and we can unsuspend you right away if we're online when you email.
Why do I get a notice that I have exceeded bandwidth?Top
You downloaded an extremely excessive amount of data from our site - way more than the entire amount content of the site. We're a small company who has to pay for your downloads. This is factored into our subscription plans. If you see the "excessive downloads!" message, or you have been asked by the site administrators to view this page, you have cost us much more than your subscription, and we don't like you any more.
We have frozen your account, so you can browse pages on the site but not download any content.
It's unlikely you'd have a valid excuse for this, but you can contact us to discuss it if you wish. Some of the popular excuses that won't wash are:
- "I didn't read the terms and conditions!": You agreed to the terms and conditions before you join the site. We realise that not everyone reads the fine print, but unfortunately, it's a fact of life.
- "I gave my password to my buddies": You paid for the site for you, not for your buddies. Tell them to join themselves (and buy you a new sub, because you won't be using this one again).
- "I installed this special program to mirror the site, but I did not know how to use it...": We don't need you to mirror the site, thanks all the same. You are responsible for software you install. Ignorance is not an excuse.
- "I got a new download manager, but I did not know how to use it...": Again, not out fault. Your computer downloaded it!
- "It wasn't me!": You're responsible for your password, which is the only way to access the site. We advise you to keep it secure. Our software does not make mistakes: we count each megabyte you downloaded.
