How do I recover my new account?
I just used Steemconnect to create a new account to use as a football blog and transferred 10steem to start it off except I got the account name format wrong twice until I sorted it out in lower case without the '@'.<br>I think it kept changing the password, so I didn't copy the final version when it worked and created the account.<br>The account is now created but @lufc but I can't get into it :-(<br>What an idiot, but is there any way to get me in or at least get back my 10steem please lol...<br><br>I really want the account name @lufc though....Helppppppppp please !!!<br><br>Thanks in advance.

Steemit is like a social network. To create a account on steemit is not a easy work for inexperienced people. To create an account on steemit you have to cross some steps.

At first you go to the sign up page. Then you click on free sign up and select a unique username. Next you need a valid email for taken confirmation mail. Then they will send a mail and you have to confirm that. At last they want a phone number for verification. After verification they will also send a approval mail. Then you go to the link and they will give you a hard password. This password is not easy to remember.

So, when you get the password you have to copy the password and paste in you google drive or Microsoft office page. So that you can use this password at every time. As a resul, if you forget the password then you can get password from there. It's a very easy way to recover your password.

Recovering an account without the keys is near impossible, with the only way being brute force, but with the 32 character key provided to you by steemconnect, good luck brute forcing your way through that.

Account recovery is quite easy if you have one of the old passwords of the account, and the key to the recovery account but without both of those, it can't be done.

Steemconnect regenerates a new key every time you go onto their create page so there is no way to tell what it was.

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but that account is most likely gone forever unless you are feeling lucky with a bruteforce.

Recover you new account on where?? You didn't specify exactly the platform but lemme give you a general way. If you mean to recover your account on Steemit, then I will tell you that the first password rule in steemit is not to lose your password. This entails that from the first day you were given your steemit password, go and save it in either your Gmail or any secure site you know you can retrieve it later.

Tough luck.. The steem account "recovery" process very very limited. Unless you have a prior account key, your new account is forever lost. The original recovery process is not meant for someone forgetting his account but rather have his account hacked. Say someone hacked your account and changed the password, this is where the Recovery process comes in.

I experienced the something similar to you some time ago. Luckily the account was delegated so I can pull back the delegation.

Remember that a Steem Address is as secure as Bitcoin Address. Its not as easy as "recover my account via email" and all that. Once your key is lost, your key is lost. Sorry brother.

Worst case scenario-

Your account is gone and there's nothing you can do about it. Steemit master passwords are very sensitive, and if you lose it you might just say goodbye to your account.

Best case scenario -

There might be hope for you. I've heard stories of steemians who lost control of their accounts but were able to recover them.

Talking to the right people might help eg witnesses.
