The major benefit to having a Craigslist account is that you can access and edit past posts from it. Some posts are saved for years. You can read the text of past posts, edit them and resubmit them if you want to make the same post again.
Why do I need a Craigslist account?
Account Privileges As a registered user, you have access to a control panel where you can publish new ads, edit current listings or re-post expired ones. Without a Craigslist account, there is no way to manage a post except through a link in an email that you receive whenever you post as an unregistered user.
Can you deactivate Craigslist account?
Craigslist offers an easy option to deactivate your account. Deactivation pauses your account so its not longer accessible but it does not actually delete your information. If you would like to completely delete your account you will need to contact customer service and request that your entire account be deleted.
Can your Craigslist account be hacked?
If your account has been hacked, contacting Abuse may solve the problem. Craigslist Help Desk recommends that you log in to your account and delete the unwanted postings, then change your password.
Is it bad to give your email out on Craigslist?
When you reply to a Craigslist ad, the system asks you to provide an email address. If youre worried about using your own email address, Craigslist recommends using an anonymous email with no identifiers in the address when replying to Craigslist ads.
