If someone loses a Stack Exchange account used in a college computer lab, is it possible to recover the account anyway?

The account is probably used by someone else, by changing email id.

What is an available solution?

    Its a messy situation so the only real way to sort it out is to use the contact link at the bottom, and get in touch with the support team. Try to give any information needed to verify the account is yours

  • @JourneymanGeek I can provide only email ID, is that enough? I think SE keeps all email id even when an account changes it, isn't it? Jul 31 at 14:01

    I don't know - I've never done it before. If staff need more information, they'll ask
