Question DetailsAsked on 3/31/2017

Why do you need the password to my email account. I am concerned about hacking

If someone purporting to be from Angies List is asking for your password, I would assume it is a spoofing attempt - someone claiming to be from Angies List but actually a crook. You should never provide your eMail password to ANYONE (other than when logging into your eMail account) - and never use your eMail password as a website password.

I would contact Angies List member services about this as well - someone may have hacked Angies List computer.

This is James in Member Care. Thanks for posting.

I apologize for any concern. If you would please respond to this thread with more details or send us an email at, we'll be happy to help further or clarify any confusion. If you are setting up a new membership, your email address is used for login and registration purposes. You can create your own password at that time and it does not have to be the same password that you use for your email login. Thanks again and we look forward to assisting you!

Let us know if you have any other questions, or visit the 24/7 Angie's List support site for additional help. Don't forget, if you have any home maintenance or improvement projects coming up, you can save time and money by shopping at AngiesList!
