If you forget your Google Account or Gmail account password, you can use the Forgot password link to recover access to your account.
If you have a Google Workspace account, we strongly recommend that you contact your administrator to reset your password; if they are unavailable, please contact us.
Before you complete the process, sign out of any other Google account you may have open in your browser. A next screen is a recovery form where you can have a password reset sent to your email. Enter the Gmail address you used to create the account and click Submit.
If you don’t have an account and want to create one, enter your email address on any Google login page (Gmail, YouTube, etc.) and click Next.
If you’ve ever had two-factor authentication enabled on a Google account, you know that if you lost the phone with your credentials or changed the device it was used on, it can be quite a chore to get back in. Well, Google has just made this process much easier.
Once you’ve finished setting up your device, you will be asked to enter the last password you remember using with the account. If you enter a password you used with the account in the not-so-distant past, Google will send an activation code to your backup email address in the account. Enter the activation code, type in a new password, and you’re in!
If you don’t remember your password, Google will send you an activation code via text or email. If this doesn’t work, you’ll need to answer your recovery questions. If you can’t answer those questions either, your recovery chances at this point will be pretty much zero
