Reset Your Forgotten Password

If you’re unable to recall your password, you won’t be able to log in to your Hulu account. But there’s nothing to worry about as Hulu allows you to reset the forgotten password to avoid coming across a Hulu login not working issue. Following are the steps that help you in this:

  1. First, go to the Hulu Iogin Page and click the “Forgot your email or password” option.

Checking Invalid Credentials

Entering incorrect login credentials, such as an inaccurate username or password, is a common cause of login issues on Hulu. The platform’s security protocols require accurate information to verify your identity and grant access to your account.

Enable Location Services

Hulu is only available in the US and uses location services to determine your location and provide access to region-specific content. If location services are disabled on your device, Hulu might be unable to confirm your location accurately. One of my team members faced this issue, which was fixed by enabling location services. This simple fix worked for many users on Reddit.

On Phone

  1. Access your device’s settings and locate the “Location” menu.

  2. Confirm that location access is activated and proceed to the app location permissions.

  3. Locate the Hulu app within the list of applications.
  4. Choose the option “Allow only while using the app.”
  5. After completing these steps, assess whether Hulu is functioning without any issues.

On Desktop

  1. Open Chrome on your desktop.
  2. Click on “More,” located in the upper right corner (usually depicted as three vertical dots or an upward-pointing arrow).

  6. Toggle the “Ask before accessing” option to the “On” position.

Check Hulu Status

Sometimes, login issues might not be on your end. Hulu’s servers could be experiencing problems or undergoing maintenance, causing disruptions in the login process. By checking the status of Hulu’s servers, you can determine if the issue lies with the platform itself.

  1. Visit the Downdetector website.

  2. In the search bar, type “Hulu” and press Enter.
  3. The page will display a graph indicating recent outage reports for Hulu.

  4. You can also view comments from other users reporting issues with Hulu.
  5. This will give you an idea if others are experiencing similar login problems, indicating a possible issue with Hulu’s service.

Final Verdict

In my testing, outdated systems can contribute to such glitches, so checking for updates might help. Generic fixes may work, but you must enable your location services for the Hulu app to avoid any issues. If none of the above solutions work, I suggest you contact Hulu’s customer support. They can provide specialized assistance for your account. If the issue persists, contacting Hulu’s customer support is recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Hulu say an incorrect password?

Encountering the "incorrect password" message on Hulu can arise from various factors. These include reusing passwords across multiple accounts, multiple incorrect login attempts triggering security measures, and potential technical disruptions on Hulu's servers. Adhering to unique passwords, being cautious during login attempts, and staying updated on server statuses can help mitigate and address this issue effectively.

Why does it say Hulu is unavailable in my region?

Encountering the message that Hulu is unavailable in your region is often due to the platform's geographical restrictions, limiting its access primarily to the United States. To access Hulu abroad, you can use a VPN service to virtually change your IP address location. This allows you to bypass the region lock and enjoy Hulu's content from anywhere in the world. 

Why is Hulu not accepting my email ID?

If you're accessing Hulu from outside the U.S., the platform's geographical restrictions might prevent email verification. Similarly, a corrupt browser cache or an incompatible browser, particularly in the case of Chrome, can hinder the verification process. Another possibility is entering incorrect email credentials, which can prevent successful verification.
