Unable to verify and login newly created Docker Hub account. What do I do?


I recently created a new account in Docker Hub. When I try to click the verification link in the account activation email sent by Docker, it did not work, and threw a "502 Bad Gateway" error instead. What do I do now?


It is likely that the confirmation link has expired. Docker Hub account confirmation links normally expire within 24 hours of sign-up. Using the email address that you entered to sign-up you can re-trigger a the confirmation email through Docker Hub's password reset page:

If you are still unable to verify your account and login to Docker Hub, please open a Customer Service Request providing additional details about the issue you're experiencing.
