Accidentally rated a review as helpful while scrolling

I was scrolling through reviews on my phone and somehow accidentally marked a review as helpful. I wouldn't care, but it was actually a pretty rude review and I would never rate it as helpful! How can I undo it? I was not even logged in at the time!

If you're not logged on I don't think it does count towards the helpful total, I believe it will reset itself after a few hours. Other than that, there is no way to 'undo' a helpful vote - but the reviewer doesn't know who has voted it helpful.

As has been said if you were not logged in I would not worry about it and TA will cancel out the vote shortly

I also hit "helpful" on a review I did NOT find helpful. There should be a way to undo your vote.

Just take comfort in knowing that all your helpful votes plus $1.59 will by you a cup of coffee. It's really no biggie.

I agree with Todd!!!! This review I accidentally liked was obviously left by an absolute a$$ and I def didn't mean to leave a helpful vote 😖 that horrible person is going to think it's a good thing to be such a jerk =(

A jerk will probably always be a jerk regardless of the number of helpful votes they get here.

in the end, is there any way to undo your vote, if you did vote when you were logged in?
