I have been using Maps.Me on iOS to slowly add POIs in my neighborhood to OSM – about 5-10 POIs a day.

But starting yesterday I’ve had a odd issue – I can log in at the OSM website using my e-mail ( and password, but when I try to log in through Maps.Me using the same credentials (I did copy and paste to ensure they were the same) I get an invalid username or password error message.

Is it possible that I have been locked out from the Maps.Me app, but still have access from the OSM website? If so, then I believe this is the right place to ask.

I have reported this to Maps.Me as well. My gut feeling is it their issue. However it worked on the 19th, and my upgrade is dated the 15th. So in that regard, I think it is not definite.

Here is the answer I got from Maps.Me - seems to indicate it’s their error, but doesn’t really give a warm fuzzy.

Hello, Joe,

Thank you for the reply.

We plan to fix the issue as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Sloppywu. As pointed out here and also in other questions this seems be a problem on side which cannot be solved here. You need to contact them.

You may also want to try Organic Maps which is a clone of by the app's former developers. I am able to log in and edit with that map.

This question has just been resurrected again, so I'll answer it and close it.

If you have a problem with, you will need to contact the developers of that app.

Alternatively, as numerous people have suggested above, you may also want to try Organic Maps which is a clone of the free parts of by the app's former developers, and is actively maintained.
