How to Search Photobucket by Email

Updated February 21, 2017

With Photobucket, account holders upload photos and videos to share with others. Each account is associated with an e-mail address and account name. If you do not know the account name associated with an album to search for, Photobucket does have the option of searching by e-mail address. This search method works for both account names and e-mail addresses.

Locate a “Search” box on the main page of Photobucket. There is a search box in the top right corner and one about mid-screen. Both will work to search for an account.

Type the full e-mail address into the search box. The email must be completely filled out and correct or the system will not find it.

Click the down menu arrow located to the right of the word “search.” Choose “People” and then click “Search.” If the account is marked private, you will be required to enter a password to view the album.


If your search results in random photos, then you probably did not successfully check the “people search" option.
