Channels and Availability
How do I contact the Support Team?
The best ways to contact the Support Team are through the in-app "Help" widget or by submitting an email ticket here. Using these channels will ensure that you get the fastest response and solution possible. To access in-app support:
- Log into your Privy account.
- Select the Live Chat button at the top right.
- If the prompt reads "Chat with Privy!" an agent will join the conversation shortly.
- If the prompt reads "Contact us" and asks for your email address, agents aren't available, and an email ticket will be created instead.
- Submit your question in the prompt. When providing an initial inquiry, please provide as detailed an explanation as possible. This information allows the support representative to identify and address your questions or challenges more effectively.
Note: The turnaround time for a non-chat support inquiry is one business day. Customers on paid plans receive priority support over those using Privy's free option.
When is the Support Team available?
Support availability varies by channel:
- Live chat support is available from 10 AM to 6 PM EST Monday through Friday.
- Email support is available from 9 AM to 9 PM EST Monday through Friday and from 10 AM to 6 PM EST on Saturday through Sunday.
Does Privy offer weekend support?

Does Privy offer phone support?
Privy does not offer phone support at this time; however, a Support representative may offer to jump on a call if your particular issue warrants it.
I was offered a voicemail number or email address. Why?
The Billing, Compliance, and Technical teams offer dedicated voicemail boxes and email addresses. These are noted on Knowledge Base guides where appropriate and should not be used for any other type of question. If you were provided information and are unsure where your request would be going, the team-specific addresses are as follows:
|Email Address||Phone Number|
Website support policy
Initial install: Installation documentation is available for various platforms, and the Support Team will provide as much guidance as possible to ensure Privy is installed properly. However, the Support Team will not edit your site code directly. Instead, the team will refer you to your website platform's support documentation or channels for specific questions about your site code.
Integrated vendor policy
Privy integrates with many different platforms and services. The platforms that integrate with Privy typically provide their own support documentation that can be referenced should an issue arise. Privy will offer support around those integrations only as it relates to Privy-specific functionality.
Additionally, issues resulting from your use of APIs or other code modifications may be outside the scope of support.
Policies & Legal documents
To reflect a constantly changing legislative landscape, Privy routinely updates the company's various service documents. The most recent versions are linked below. Please review these documents to ensure that your business remains compliant while using Privy services.
