Avoid scams! Lycos will never ask for your password via email and will only ask for information such as date of birth or postal address to verify your account when you communicate with customer service.
If you see such a scam, or if you are in doubt that an email comes from Lycos, report it immediately to Customer Service by submitting a help ticket. If you have responded to such an email, please change your password immediately to keep your account safe. For help on changing your password, click here.
