Can't Access Photobucket - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Having Problems with Accessing
Virginia Cossens · 4 days 4 hours 28 mins ago

I cannot access my library. This has been a problem since yesterday.

Kortnie Creamer · 12 April 2014 - 09:34

I'm logged in but every time I click to go to the next page, the tab closes out. What up with that? :c

Dick Havenaar · 4 April 2014 - 02:50

Same here, I have 3 accounts on photobucket and guess what, there's one I can't log in, the others work as you may expect... I know my password is right, still it says it is not..!!

Jay Taylor · 4 April 2014 - 01:42

Unable to log on, the site insists my details ate not correct (they are) so I give up and try a password reset and get "Hmmm. Something didn't click".

Overall a big FAIL and something did click, .. my mouse on another image hosting site, I'm closing my paid account down as this is not acceptable. When it does seem to work its painfully slow. BOOOOO

Joe Simsuangco · 3 April 2014 - 21:45

Why can't I access my account?! It tells me maintenance and yet other parts of photobucket are accessible! What the hell?!

Thresea Hernandez · 27 March 2014 - 18:08

cant even pull up photobucket, let alone sign in

Joanne Simpson-Connor · 27 March 2014 - 01:34

I can't edit my photos.

Susan Poisson · 7 March 2014 - 09:28

Down... AGAIN. Always right when it's needed. Good thing I have an alternative.

Leon Novello · 5 March 2014 - 19:11

If your photobucket link is slow to copy, do not click on the ORGANIZE button, just left- click on the photo; it will enlarge and show a menu on the right, click on IMG or any code you want, it will turn amber and show COPIED immediately.

Laney Stephens · 2 March 2014 - 10:08

Photobucket won't let me edit my photos. Every time I go to edit, the site crashes.

Mary Anne Reid · 1 March 2014 - 06:44

Slow to load, not loading the entire library. Was fine about 15 minutes ago.

Jolene Gordin · 24 February 2014 - 14:00

i can't log in to my photobucket. Non of my pic linked to my bucket are working, I cant even find my user name in search. Could my account have gotten deleted without me knowing?

Monica Govednik Abrahamsen · 16 February 2014 - 00:45

can't get into my homepage... never changed my settings.. they changed w/o me.. what the helll

Monica Govednik Abrahamsen · 14 February 2014 - 00:14

I can't access anything it's all thumb prints photo's! I can't change anything...can't DO anything... GRRRR

Ashika Ou · 13 February 2014 - 23:02

WTF PHOTOBUCKET. I was pretty sure that my log-in info was right. When I tried recovering my password, I entered the correct email to that account but it just showed me a message of "Hmmm. Something didn't click. Password reset is not currently available." over and OVER again.

Who would not be pissed on this?

@Resy Rodriguez, same problem I am going through right now.

Resy Rodriguez · 13 February 2014 - 22:52

Photobucket not working. Saying my log in info. Pretty sure its right. Cant recover. Anyone else having same problems?

Roger Stroupe · 7 February 2014 - 11:19

as of 7 February 2014 Photobucket is having a problem that is not being corrected. For advertisers with time sensitive material it is best to start a new account not using the e-mail and identification of the existing account.

Kaylee Sachs · 3 February 2014 - 00:40

I cannot log into my account. I am sure my information is correct but it keeps saying it is unfound.

Morgan Ashton · 31 January 2014 - 20:42

I can't log on. I got really scared my account was hacked or banned but I went on chrome, traced my account vie an image I posted on a website and got stuck on a page that said Photobucket was doing maintenance. Phew. That takes a load off before I decide to go to bed. When I try to log on it says my password or login name is incorrect.

Ross Byrne · 23 January 2014 - 20:40

Cannot login. When I request a password recovery email, Photobucket says it has sent an email but it never arrives. Not in spam folder either.

Gregory Boober Jr. · 22 January 2014 - 15:19

Yep, same here (1/22/2014) 6PM EST. I'm sure my info is correct, but it's a no-go.

JohnNwosu Law · 22 January 2014 - 15:06

Is not letting me log in, I have tried all day since morning of 01/22/2014 and I know my password is correct

Jen Lavery · 22 January 2014 - 12:43

photobucket will not let me log in. i know my password is correct. jan 22, 2014

Ron Carey · 20 January 2014 - 16:32

Well, they apparently changed something again, because the uploader doesn't work. This site started out as a storage site and now all they're interested in is social media bullshit.

Beth Wiltsch Horton · 18 December 2013 - 06:45

75% of my photos have disappeared and have an error saying that I moved or deleted them. I never touch my photobucket account. It hosts photos for old blogs on my website and I only noticed this when I went to send a link to someone and none of the photos load. I pay for unlimited bandwidth and I am PISSED right now.

Brenda Williams · 17 December 2013 - 22:06

My account shows photo information but all pics are missing and status of each one says that the "user" moved or deleted them... but I didn't. Boo.

Kevin Thomas · 8 December 2013 - 09:47

My Photobucket slideshows will not continue past the first page or 24 images. This applies to all of my slideshows that had been working fine until two days ago.

Pearl Phelinepoli · 30 November 2013 - 22:41

Search is very limited. It only brings up a few of any subject. You cant tell me that of billions of loaded photos, that there are only 2000 cat photos. I cant even find my own in search that I know are labeled.

Patricia Forsyth · 26 November 2013 - 09:33

was looking for some topics and only getting like one result is there something I'm missing?

Scott Matheson · 20 November 2013 - 12:29

Jeez all photos are "grayed" in my photobucket album. I am paid membership and still much less than the size limit

Roxyana Wolvreina · 25 October 2013 - 01:43

I left photobucket when they made that ridiculous style-switch and basically made their site useless, but I had thousands of things hosted there that I'm loathe to re-link to... and now none of those are showing up, or they show up as broken images. Getting a single image to load is impossible -- let alone my actual albums. The site was trash before, but now it's broken trash. Great job PB!

Tiffany Greenhalgh Dougher · 5 October 2013 - 10:00

I've tried getting on since last night and it will not load, only text along the left side of the page.

Margaret Buckner Dyer · 5 October 2013 - 09:37

Im on Google Chrome... it will only let me sign in under Mobile... I dont want mobile :(

Paula Thurber · 27 September 2013 - 11:39

I can reach the site, but it looks like circa 1995 Mosaic, and anything I click on from there gets no response, just takes me back to the top of the page. This is in Chrome.

Susan Lynn Rasmussen · 20 September 2013 - 18:36

I was able to get on to Photobucket, but I would upload a small 500KB image and it would take at least 20 minutes, and then I would get a message that something went wrong with my upload. I could view all my other images, just couldn't upload anything successfully. As if 9:36 PM ET on September 20, 2013 Photobucket is still down.

Felipe Pereira Rego · 20 September 2013 - 16:05

Photobucket is down right now. If you don't believe me see posts below

Alex Holmes · 20 September 2013 - 15:50

I can't log in to Photobucket with my Facebook account.

Update: Photobucket is actually down right now. They're doing maintenance to the site (:

Bob Smith · 29 August 2013 - 10:27

cannot get pb to load. all of my ebay listing images on pb are broken. cannot even get the pb site to load when i try to google it. & they just took my renewal fees!

Figment Imagination · 23 August 2013 - 07:13

NO it is not working i tried to upload the same images 7 times! it just pops back up with the upload box. Please go back to the old PH style these new versions are more than a pain to work with.

Annie Foster · 25 July 2013 - 15:16

Photobucket WILL NOT work for me at all... I see my pics for a second, then I get a white screen... This has been going on for weeks!!! There are photos there I want to access... before I close down my account. It is NOT anything I am doing wrong... It worked fine, then I just started getting this.

Preston Tallhamer · 22 July 2013 - 19:00

after 2 seconds on homepage the page goes completely white. please fix that

Lauren Anderson · 18 July 2013 - 16:19

phto bucket not working, worked the other day, hate this "new" format. very unhappy!!!

Zuko Featherock · 10 July 2013 - 16:39

I can't even get any photobucket images to show up anywhere on any of my browsers. None of FF, IE, or Chrome... they were working perfectly fine this morning! I can get them to work on my phone as well!

Manda Marie · 6 July 2013 - 18:58

Every time i go onto photobucket it tells me there is a bad request; "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit. Cookie"

That is what it also says. I use this site for ALL my pictures and i don't understand what's going on.

Curtis Reed · 4 July 2013 - 17:51

Wanted to vote zero stars, but voted two stars because that's what was there and I never saw this type of vote format before. Photobucket totally screwed up for me now. No button to even log out. Won't show my library. Basic upload box is not as described on their help page--there is no "browse" button. Site has never been right since I started using it on a new Windows ME computer. (Many of same weird problems on new Windows 7 machine.

Catherine Climpson · 24 June 2013 - 12:22

Photobucket hasn't worked for me for about 3 days; what could be wrong with it? How can I fix it?? It is so annoying!!!

Manuel Rodriguez · 25 May 2013 - 19:40

Wow i posted over 2000 photos of me in photo bucket this year and now i cant see them #wtf. Is it gonna work again??? wtf i had so many photos in there

Tina Barron Christine Mercer · 11 May 2013 - 21:01

Iy keeps telling me that my upload failed because the files are too big, BUT these are taken with exactly the same camera as always... I have tried many pictures but it says the same thing.

Deb Lipke · 6 May 2013 - 08:13

wont let me upload any pics or look at any pages in an album. Deleted my account and now I cant even register a new account. What's up?

Kayla Heart · 7 April 2013 - 02:29

So everytime i upload a photo, It uploads then ill edited it and it wont show the texts i put.

Gary Paul · 2 April 2013 - 13:24

Last week, worked fine, this week, it doesn't recognise my user name or password, or my email and won't therefore allow me to even try and reset the password i already know is absolutely right. I've been a "pro" user for years and then this crap happens. Not happy at all

Mecca Williams · 31 March 2013 - 18:40

I don't like the new photobucket, the view counter stays the same. I write down every view I get on my photos/videos and it stays the same each time. I also don't like the background... on my original profile page before they switched over, without giving us a choice between the classic pb and new pb, I don't see my customize background anymore they took it away, I am not happy with photobucket!

James Allen · 24 March 2013 - 18:11

Can't upload nor can I go to 2nd, 3rd, etc pages of my library, nor can I enter a support ticket I've created... Damn

Jessica Bolduc · 21 March 2013 - 12:36

For some reason, nothing I try and upload is going up. I keep getting the 'Hmm...' message and being told to try again and it's still not cooperating. I'm getting really sick of the problems in beta.

Mike Mw Thomas · 18 March 2013 - 15:23

i can use photobucket on opera, occasionally there is an error with saving a picture i have edited though.

Eric Durant · 18 March 2013 - 15:22

As of 3 days ago I get on photobucket then is freezes up and i un install chrome then use firefox that does not work... now im back to IE still does same thing

Fred Fanackerpan · 18 March 2013 - 08:25

Nope down here to although it says accessable (above) dont believe it its not true firwst they wipe all my photos when moving to the new site and now you can't hook up with the website even if you have put your photos back again, this is shit.

Lainey Thomas · 18 March 2013 - 08:23

If it isn't broken don't fix it, yet they do and most times break it yet again

Nick Jack · 9 March 2013 - 20:45

Still down after this site saying its been back up for 15 minutes! Maybe its just in my region of the country/world this sucks ass

Christopher Holmes · 8 March 2013 - 19:08

Can't log into Photobucket using Safari, Explorer, or Firefox. Actually, Firefox crashes when trying to access Photobucket. I enter my login and password and they tell me it's incorrect (which I know for a fact that's not the case), I then try resetting the password and then I get a message stating "password reset is not currently available". I do a standard search for images in one of my albums and search results brings back nothing. I do a open search by my username and results bring back nothing. I filed a ticket but have not heard back.

Jo Cunningham · 8 March 2013 - 12:17

Can't login in either explorer or firefox. After a few attempts I get a message that my account is under maintenance. I've sent a ticket into photobucket but not heard back.

Rose Anne Knicely · 26 February 2013 - 10:11

have not been able to log in since last nite.. getting this "Bad Request. Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." anybody from photobucket going to step up and say what the problem is, or how long its going to be?

Monk D'Wally De Honk · 21 February 2013 - 07:48

I've had it with Photobucket, coz it's so slow I can't believe it; I keep getting 'unlogged'; I CONTINUOUSLY get a 'stack overflow' pop-up... eh, I've lost interest

Mary Katherine May · 20 February 2013 - 06:53

Photobucket currently not accepting my photos as submitted: the rotation is wrong. Cannot save when corrected in PB editor.

Kathy Grigoleit · 19 February 2013 - 01:38

What you just forced on me (and even before your 13 days left warning) you still DID IT.. It has messed up my eBay.. I can't re-arrange my photos, and your option to move them, is to another album. BULL___ Bring back the old version. Most of the time you LIBERALS get it wrong with your idea of what "progress" is... I will be looking elsewhere for a new place.. When I first tried it, it deleted PHOTOS... JUST GO DIE in the MYSPACE graveyard..

Guy Turner · 17 February 2013 - 04:59

Photobucket is a load of old junk! The problem with it is that the operators of the site don't give a flying f**k if it works or not. They are now charging a fee for larger storage and therefore don't care one iota for free customers.
Photobucket is dead. Use Fotki, Imageshack or Kodak's photo storage. Photobucket is dead.

Kara Oxnam Pothier · 15 February 2013 - 22:02

I can't pin my photos from photobucket to pinterest. When I pin a photo, the pop-box shows up, I choose my category and give it a description. It tries to load the new pin and then it refreshes to a new pop-up window with a blank image and a new category chosen.

June Calder · 14 February 2013 - 11:53

Cant do a thing on my account for third day running now... never works in ie.... now wont work in google chrome.... Im getting sick of it now

Raymond Coulombe · 10 February 2013 - 05:20

I am having trouble with settings, ie when i try to set newest first it will not save, thus it puts all my photos at the end of my album. this is causing me to scroll all the way through to find my photos. Can you help please.

Namiya Rika · 6 February 2013 - 22:38

i upgraded my photobucket account. but it keeps loading a white page. i cant touch anything of my photos or do anything. it keeps loading non stop. if i cant get in there im gonna loose allll my photos because photobucket is the ONLY website i use to save my pictures.

Fernando Fernandez · 25 January 2013 - 10:14

It would be nice if they were to send an email stating that the site is down or on the site itself.

Patty Kimberlin · 18 January 2013 - 05:52

I just signed up for a photobucket acc.. and now cannot get on it???

Patrick Mullady · 7 January 2013 - 10:45

Everytime I type in it automatically switches to and then just goes to a blank screen! It has been doing this for months now! What's going on (MAC OSX 10.4.11 & Safari)

Wendi Mims Nations · 4 January 2013 - 15:42

I can get to the log in page but then goes blank!!! what's the deal?

Genoveba Amadeo · 1 January 2013 - 10:06

i am having a problem geting to my pictures i get to log in but can not get to the photos. Please can someone let me know what i can do.

James Parker · 31 December 2012 - 09:02

Photobucket not working and wont let me switch back to the old site, f*cking sh1te

Waylon White · 31 December 2012 - 04:54

Photo bucket won't let me switch back to the original. I don't like it at all because you can't seem to search for people or anything, why is that?

Terry Lamb · 27 December 2012 - 16:31

according to their twitter account that i received a reply from, some of their servers are down and the engineers are working on them..

Simon Brown · 27 December 2012 - 16:29

I'm able to log in & upload, but the upload times seem to be increased, Like something that would normally take two or 3 mins to upload, maybe take 10-15 mins, Really frustrating, plus getting to the bulk upload screen takes forever to load.

Brittany Ellis · 27 December 2012 - 16:25

Photobucket still wont' work. I'm really getting frustrated with this. I've been trying to upload stuff all day long.

El Sim · 27 December 2012 - 12:01

Photobucket not loading. Stuck in beta. Haven't been able to log on to photobucket for over a week. Using image shack for now but I need access to my uploaded photos!

Terry Lamb · 27 December 2012 - 11:58

Couldnt get past "welcome page" for last hour, now that I have finally gotten to the upload page, the upload for 1 photo is stopped at 94% on a small file (229 KB's)

Jeremy Quigg · 24 December 2012 - 16:40

A previous commenter says it well: "Everytime I type in it automatically switches to and then just goes to a blank screen! It has been doing this for about a month now! What's going on?"

Bea Jd · 19 December 2012 - 08:10

I get blank pages that go nowhere..:( Please can I have my old Photobucket back..

Alexa Danae · 10 December 2012 - 19:42

Everytime I type in it automatically switches to and then just goes to a blank screen! It has been doing this for about a month now! What's going on?

Alicia Kidsister Strohm · 7 December 2012 - 12:22

I cannot log into photobucket now two days.. it keeps saying that it is a bad request. what is going on?

Anne Gabeler · 6 December 2012 - 13:41

I have no idea why Photobucket is down just for me. Wish I knew who to contact to find out.

Peter Peterson · 4 December 2012 - 16:19

Once and eventually the Photobucket appears it then appears to be being taken over and hijacked by other sites, one of which is 'Amazonanews'

Kay Douglas · 19 November 2012 - 06:48

Working now for me both in IE and FF. Very wrong that I had to change my browser to get it to work. I shall still use IE as my default browser and keep FF loaded as a back up.

Kristen Kandie · 19 November 2012 - 05:35

Photobucket is working perfectly fine for me now! Woooo! Thank u hope it stays this way!

Caitlin Mead · 18 November 2012 - 12:05

I'm having the same problem as well. Even if you aren't a member you can't search for anything... and nothing is clickable.

Mandy Boulton · 18 November 2012 - 10:42

have not been able to access my account since the recent changes, lots of "console is undefined" errors with various numbers, and nothing works, cannot see my photos etc. cannot even click on help. nor can I close my account. disgraceful.

Chad J. York · 18 November 2012 - 10:21

Same thing here as the others. Can't view pics and buttons are "un-clickable".

Otto Routh · 18 November 2012 - 07:54

Can access the site but it is (apparently) stuck in 'beta' - can't see any photos (mine or anyone's) - can't click on anything that works (all links are pretty much dead.) Can't even log off (unless I sneak into the 'developers' section.)

No - am not switching browsers from IE 9.x to anything. Shouldn't have to, and won't.

Jayne Meyer · 18 November 2012 - 03:35

I haven't been able to access my albums for days. No buttons work, can't even log off. HELP !!

Sophia Frentz · 18 November 2012 - 01:41

I saw a suggestion on another board to change my browser - so swapped from IE to Chrome and magically everything was back working again and I have used Photobucket today. Using Internet Explorer (my default browser) I've been having the same problems as everyone else and can't do anything?

Jonathan Buhay · 18 November 2012 - 01:31

It has been down for a couple of days now, I cannot access my photos. I should get a credit for the days I cannot access Photobucket.

Rosemary McClelland · 18 November 2012 - 01:11

Photobucket not working for me! Can't access my photos, all seem to have "disappeared" from yesterday, 17 November and today 18 November. Nothing shows on Library - seems to have "lost" all my photos, I then click on "Home" and there are blank photos shown, which cannot be accessed! I know of others down south having the same problems as well! Can't upload either. I hope all my photos have not disappeared!!

Linda Gee · 17 November 2012 - 19:54

I've been trying to upload pics to my forum for days now... What the? Can't find anything... nothing is working... all pics and folders are gone... Made my weekend.*>*

Maria Starcrest · 17 November 2012 - 19:03

Yeah i can't view my albums or even search for picts nothing's showing or uploading. it's been almost 24 hours and the site is not working, what the heck is going on
