Q. Can I change my password?
Simply hit the forget password and you will receive a link to reset/change your password.

Q. I want to update / change my email address. How?
A. You may send us an email through our support team. You will then receive a confirmation email from our team that your email address has been updated. As some surveys were already launched for delivery prior your email change request, you may still receive few survey invites to the original email address registered within 48 hours from the email address change. You may ignore these invites.

Q. I suddenly stopped receiving survey invites. Why?

A. There are possible reasons for this. You may reach out to our support team and we will help check it out for you.

  • As part of our quality measures, our system tags spam email address or those with monitored abnormal activities. There may be times where our system may tag an email address wrongly.
  • Your account has been flagged to have suspicious survey activities such as speeding, inconsistent responses, referral of dummy email addresses, and other forms of illegal activities. To protect the integrity of the surveys we host, all accounts that will be flagged are automatically terminated.

Q. Do I need any special software to participate in surveys/email promotions?
A. For the majority of cases, all you will need is an internet connection, a working email address and a reliable web browser to read our surveys and email promotions. From time to time, you may also receive special surveys or promotions such as movie trailers or a sneak peek of a TV or radio commercial so a working sound card and appropriate software may be required. This might include web browser plugins and/or software for rich media, video, audio, flash animation and portable document files (PDFs). Programs such as Macromedia Flash Player, Apple Quicktime, Microsoft Media Player, Real Player, and Acrobat Reader are readily available for free online.

Q. I responded to a survey invitation, but the survey was full or I did not qualify! Why?
A. Survey invitations are very popular amongst our members. Some surveys will have set quotas for responses and in most cases, they will also specify a closing date for responses. From time to time, we may have survey response quotas filled out before the closing date. The people who respond quickest have the best chance to accumulate the maximum amount of rewards allocated to that survey, so it pays to be vigilant of your Empowered Surveys emails.

Q. I responded to a survey and got redirected to a different survey! Why?
A. Some of our survey invitations have an automated redirect option when you don't qualify or have been dismissed from the survey due to various reasons. We want to make survey you have as many opportunities to accumulate points as possible, thus if you don't qualify and/or get screened out, you can have another opportunity to get points from a different survey.

Q. I finished the survey but I got a screen out message or it says I am not qualified. Why?
A. There are two possible reasons for this.
  • As many panelists are actively answering surveys, there may be times where the current survey you were answering to has reached the target number of responses it is looking for while you were in the middle of the survey.
  • As part of data integrity check, there are security measures placed within the survey to monitor any inconsistencies with your responses, or any fraud activities that were done in the middle of the survey. As an action, all responses that were monitored fraud will not be accepted and rewarded.

Q. How do I unsubscribe/resign from the Empowered Surveys online community?
A. You can unsubscribe from Empowered Surveys via the Account section of the website. Additionally, at the bottom of each email we send to you there is a link to unsubscribe from the service. Please note it can take up to 72 hours for the change to take effect and when you unsubscribe, your account remains in a grace status for a period of 14 days, during which you can reactivate your account if you change your mind. Once this grace period has expired, your account is permanently terminated, and any reward points you have earned will be forfeited.
