CHANGE OR RESET YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT PASSWORD

Forget Password
If you don’t know your Google Account password, follow these steps to set a new one.

  • Go to the trouble signing in page.
  • Select “I don’t know my password.”
  • Enter your email address and follow the instructions on the screen.

Change password
You can change your Google Account password at any time.

  • Sign in to My Account.
  • In the “Sign-in & security” section, select Signing in to Google.
  • Choose Password.
  • Enter your new password information, then select Change Password.

Important: If you’re running Android 5.1 or higher on your device and need to do a factory reset, you need to wait 24 hours after changing your password to reset your device. For security purposes, you can’t use an account if the password was changed within 24 hours to set up the device after reset. Learn about how to protect your device.
Password Requirements
Google Account passwords must be at least 8 characters long. They can include:

  • Uppercase and lowercase letters. Passwords are case-sensitive, so “G” is different from “g.”
  • Numbers
  • These symbols: ! ” # $ % & ‘ ( ) * + , – . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^ { | } ~
  • Spaces: You can’t use a space at the beginning or end of your password, but spaces inside the password are fine.

Keep in mind, you won’t be able to reuse a password from the past year. We’ve also blocked some passwords that are easy to guess, like “12345678.”
