Reset your administrator password

If you're an administrator of a Google for Work account and you forgot your password or are having trouble signing in to your account, here's what you can do to access your account:

Reset your administrator password

To change your administrator password:

  1. Go to admin.google.com.
  2. Click Need help? below the Sign in button.
  3. Select one of the following options:
    • I don't know my password. Reset your password by entering the email address you use to sign in to Google. This can be your Gmail address, your Google Apps email address, or another email address associated with your account.
    • I don't know my username. Receive instructions for accessing your account either at your recovery email address or phone number. What if phone and email options aren't available?

      Phone and email options aren't available if:

      • You haven't added recovery information to your administrator account. If you were granted administrator privileges by another administrator, you probably need to tell us your phone and email contact information. See Add recovery options to your administrator account.
      • Your Google for Work account has more than 3 super administrators or 500 users.

      When phone and email options aren't available:

    • I'm having other problems signing in. Enter the email address you use to sign in to Google. This can be your Gmail address, your Google Apps email address, or another email address associated with your account. Then follow the instructions that appear onscreen.

For other issues signing in, see Problems signing in to your account.
