I have always had Facebook as my way to sign into IMDB. Now that I want to delete my Facebook account for good, is there a way to transfer all my IMDB data to another account/a newly-created account?

Thank you for the support. I have tried that (Sign in with IMDB -> forgot password) but it says it is unable to identify me given the information I provided. I'm sure it's the same email address I have always used for Facebook.
I however have my IMDB user ID (the long number). Could I use it somewhere so that the system can identify me?

Hi Anita,

Yes, your IMDb registered email address would be the same email address used to log in with your Facebook account if you used the Facebook option to sign up.

Could you provide us with the URL of the "Your Activity" page for your account, or the URL of one of your public lists, so that we can offer further help? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Claire,

After a few more attempts, I found where it went wrong (my email address registered on IMDB was a very old one and not the same as on my Facebook atm), now it's fixed and I'm good changing password and unlinking Facebook to my IMDB account. All set! 

Thank you a lot for the assistance!

Best, 
Anita.
