Retrieve abandoned username

I wanted to have the username of my project on this account but I found that there’s an account with that username that has no activities since the “Joined GitHub” in 2014, no contribution or stars in the past 5 years. Github have some policy regarding abandoned accounts? There’s anything I could do to retrieve it?

Hello @kornolinka ,

Thanks for reaching out! There is a policy on name squatting which allows people to acquire accounts without activity. You’ll need to reach out to GitHub Support directly for help with this. We can’t discuss specific account details in the public forum.

I hope this helps.
