How can I log into my account? I've done the password recovery steps two separate times now. Both times I get a message saying, "Your account is temporarily unavailable."

I cannot log into my account. Here's what I did: 

1) I did the password recovery on my account. I changed the password. 

2) I tried to log in using my new password, it wouldn't work. I kept re-entering my new password until I got the following message: Your account is temporarily unavailable.You have exceeded the maximum number of attempts to sign in. Limiting the number of attempts helps keep your account safe. You may try again in 15 minutes." 

3) I waited 15 minutes and tried again. But when I tried again, I got the same 15 minute message. 

4) I clicked the password recovery link. Before clicking on the password recovery link in my email, I waited one hour. 

5) After one hour passed, I clicked the link in my password recovery email. I changed my password again. 

6) I tried logging in, I got the 15 minute error message. 

Can I log into ever again? Or will I be permanently locked out of my account?

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
