I have a new iPhone and can’t sign into my Flickr a/c. The a/c is em4pics. I have been forced to change my password this morning and still can’t get in. I’m furious with Flickr. Sort something out. I have years of photos on my account and I want to access them. I keep getting a stupid message which makes no sense. Miss Emma Anderson


My complaint is that flickr is allowing photos of animals being killed or abused of various species to be seen on its sign in page as well as anywhere else. This is unacceptable and thousands of people have signed petitions to stop this. flickr does not care. They should be SHUT DOWN.


This anti-human site is allowing photos depicting animal death and animal abuse to be viewed by underage people. They ignore complaints and respond with that they do not care. Any normal site would be shut down and hundreds have signed petitions and complained. If this site did not force us to post at least one star, then flickr would not have any rating at all. They are destined to GO OUT OF BUSINESS SOON.


You've had a couple of weeks to sort out teething problems but still seem to be a very sub-standard service. Slow speeds, incorrect information, general slackness. I thought you were supposed to herald a new era. Some hope- just get it fixed once and for all WITHOUT GLICHES !!!!!! not too much to ask is it ?


This is the 8th day that I am unable to login to my Flickr Pro account on my PC. I can get on with my iPad but that is basically useless for what I need to do. Obviously my old signon which is remembered is still valid. After being prompted to use my new signin because the yahoo login doesn't work I have tried just about every combination of acct email and password that I've ever used anywhere I get the prompt name not recognized. I found out the hard way that there is no way to contact their customer service. Is this any way to run a business. SMUGmug well describes the companies attitude. I would give zero stars if it were an option.


I pay for a PRO account with Flickr which costs $50 per year! Since doing an upgrade nearly three days ago, I cannot log into my account. I have written to them three times by sending an email, with NO response. Thousands of people around the world are having similar issues as evidenced by online complaints. Flickr provides NO customer support by way of a phone number, live chat, or other means of contacting a live person! This company is horrible and should provide refunds to all customers who pay the annual fee of $50! I am the administrator for two photosites on Flickr and need to upload photos for my clients. They are very upset that new photos cannot be uploaded. Please help me to get Flickr accountable for its complete and reckless disregard for serving its customers! I would like to file a formal complaint with any company who can make Flickr take responsibility for its actions and stealing from its customers. I can be reached also at 860-670-4682. Thank you!

I have been victimized with being barred from my account after changing details. I have no means of logging in and as a PRO account payer I am being unfairly treated and am paying for no service as my emails have been ignored constantly.


I'm on the Pro Plan at over $50 a year, yet nothing is going right so far. I'm blocked from posting on any of the communities for one reason or another. When people try to view my work from their smartphones most of the time they can only see about half of each picture. I am far and away the most colorful digital artist in the world. If you don't believe me you can see my work at But being the most colorful comes with a HUGE PRICE. In Corporate America NEPOTISM comes first. The last site I posted at was Fine Art America who also did terrible things to me. Too many to mention here but among other things they tore down my site, Libeled me, hacked my computer and I caught them selling my work all across the world. They will be getting sued. Now back to Flickr. I sent them an email 72 hours ago and still waiting for a response. They already said they can't help me with the communities because the Admins run them. Does that explain why I'm blocked FROM ALL OF THEM? I've managed about 20,000 views in two weeks but am COMPLETELY BLOCKED from the Search Engines unless I type Ron Fleishman Flicker and even then I sometimes don't show up. All the Search Engines say I have 63 photos. It was like that after my first day two weeks ago including my old ones. I honestly think I'm on some kind of Corporate Blacklist. Other Photo related Companies who have screwed me are Facebook, Bored Panda, Webshots, Google+ and once again Fine Art America and Flickr. I'll be surprised if I get any kind of response to this. Corporate America has United to Screw Me Over.


paradoxical situation of> To:

1: It appears that this "Adolf Chaplin" photostream & account no longer exists, can you explain why is that happening? (furthermore, ain't possible to download the data from account settings page because ain't possible to login).
2: Anyway, your Support mailed me this ""Flickr Abuse & Advocacy team to let you know that we've changed the safety level of your photostream to moderate"". But on Dec29-2018 you add already moderated this account, latter you have restored it on safe level, since then the content has not changed, there have been no picture addings at all. Therefore what explains this incoherent reversal of consideration? (It is worth remembering that this "cartooning pictures" ain't absolutely no "hentai" kind and no nudity content except for a small number of "pictures" already defined as "moderate" at the outset online post, is the setting of this part have been changed on "safe" on the occasion of your last rating back to safe? Please can you specify wich ones pictures justify this new change of "moderate" setting so that I will rectify the setting of).

Awaiting your answer, best regards

You have no idea how hard you make it to contact you when you keep rejecting everything....


I have recently signed up and paid for a Pro account which was working just great. However when I try logging in via a browser I get the attached message. The app just shows what looks like a blank account.

My initial enquiry via was most unhelpful, as you can see from the below quoted response.
Given the automated response to my email says that's as a Pro user i am in a priority queue, the response time is days and not hours, which is really poor.

I am now left waiting for a response to my latest email to Elizabeth, which was 48 hours ago.

Could you please advise how to resolve this issue and gain access my account.
Regards Shaun

Email quote -

"Thank you for your response Elizabeth.

This is very disturbing, could you please advise why, without any forewarning my ShaunbondP3 account has been deleted? This account contained over 10,000 photos, hence the reason for Paying to 'go pro' and secure my photos for prosperity.

The other account is nothing to do with the account ShaunbondP3 and as a result I am not interested in that account.

My main and only concern is regarding ShaunbondP3 and where my photos have gone. I have paid for a service of which you have for a yet undisclosed reason have removed.

As you would expect I am greatly disturbed by this and would appreciate your considered explanation regarding why this has situation has arisen and how it is going to be resolved.


Greetings Shaun,

Thank you for reaching out to the Flickr support team. I would be happy to assist you with your needs today.

it looks like the account that you are talking about with the username 'ShaunbondP3' was deleted by the system. There is nothing I will be able to do about that.

I did a little more searching and I found this account The email address linked to your account matches the email address you are contacting me from. There is only 1 photo in this account. I do apologize, but the most I will be able to help you with is giving you access to the active account. If that is something you would be interested in doing, please let me know.

I am looking forward to helping you, and I will be waiting to hear back from you.

Flickr sucks with their new fees and they will pay.


I have written before. The flickr app is functional sporadically at best.
There will be a notification notice but it does not open open with updates for posts or notifications. I use chrome and edge browsers. Century Link is my IP. I am using an iPhone with Verizon as my carrier.
No problems with other apps or streaming to my Sony TV.
The PC version works fine.
This has been a problem for a long time. If it continues I will be seeking a refund on my "pro" account as I am not receiving value.

Still complaining about flickr - as I did earlier this week. The service is abysmal, any other organisation would have folded long ago. How they manage to stay in business eludes me.
Poor connections, loss of data, . They sa flickr is neat!! They must be living in an alternative universe.


I purchased 3 micromax led tvs in your site in 2016 middle. one led 40inch smart tv purchased on 4.10.16 now its board dead. They told warranty is expired. But I have one plus two year warranty in all tv's. We dont know registration procedure. I faith on your concern. so still i am your strong customer. Please solve my problem. Thanks.


I have my a/c with Flicker since last 4-5 yrs, auto renewal was made and payment was charged to my credit card
But, all my pictures about 1200 pcs. are washed away, I do not see any picture on Flicker
Secondly, I have closed my credit card which was charged,
Kindly restore my pictures,

My son in law told me to sign up with Yahoo (Flickr) so I could receive photographs of my granddaughter on the opposite coast. I signed up with Flickr and all of a sudden now I have a Flickr account with absolutely every photo on my phone displayed even the ones I had sent to Trash. I am horrified! Flickr also said two people were following my photos. I cannot believe this.

I tried and tried to get back on Flickr to get them off but your website seems like it is only for experts - not me. Will you please terminate everything that has to do with me and Flickr and Yahoo. I don't want to be associated with people who act as irresponsibly as you do. It has caused me a terrible amount of anguish to have my photos out there, when I was just trying to view my five year old grand daughter.


I have been unable to access my Flickr account for over two months. I have requested assistance in this many times, using your "Topics" and "Sub-Topic" forms. Your automated response has not been useful, as every time I try to log in to Flickr, I get the following message, "We're sorry, but there's a problem. Here's what going on. That email address is already associated with an account on Flickr." This message does not allow me to move on to anything! It remains on the page no matter what I try. I have no trouble logging in to Yahoo, but I cannot log in to Flickr! Please help. I don't like to complain.


The last two days the stats on Flickr showing on my account are incorrect. Photo's loaded on one day show say 9 views for that day but say 70 total views. The number of views being recorded therefore is incorrect as not all the views on a given day are being recorded as such. There have been similar problems with the stats information in the past. As a Pro status member I am paying for this statistical information and would appreciate it if I could be confident the statistics I am receiving are accurate. This is my only real complaint about Flickr.


After changing my email address i'm no longer able to see any of my photo's, they are there as I can search using my user name and i'm getting emails to tell me that I've new followers etc.. they failed to reply to a complaint I logged months ago and still no access to my flickr account.


I love sharing pictures on Flickr. Its easy, fun and the best way to showcase your pics to the world. I use the app on my iPad and it is a very convenient way to use. Its is an easy connect in the media world and one can share pics with active members of Flickr. I like the editor option on Flickr that enables me to make changes to pics and add details if any. I always use Flickr and don't find any other better than this. Flickr has the option to even save guard your photos which I appreciate. I would definitely continue using Flickr and would make sure to suggest this to others too.

Have feedback for Flickr?

Thanks for your feedback!

Sorry. Please try again later!
