Remove your email address from someone else’s Google Account

If someone accidentally adds your email address to their account for password recovery purposes, you might get an email from Google about their account. The notification could be about the creation of a new account, a password change, or contain a password-reset link for their account.

If you happen to get one of these emails, don’t worry -- your account is safe. However, you probably want to remove your email from this other person’s account. Click the link in the email and let Google know that you didn’t create this Google Account. We’ll remove your address from this account’s recovery options so you won’t get emails about this account.

If you click the link, and then realize that you had, in fact, created this account, you can choose not to remove your email from this account.
