Recover a recently deleted Google Account

If you deleted your Google Account, you may be able to get it back. If it’s been awhile since you deleted your account, you may not be able to recover the data in your account. If you recover your account, you'll be able to sign in as usual to Gmail, Google Play, and other Google services.

  1. Follow the steps to recover your account.
  2. If your account is recovered, create a password that you haven't already used with this account. Learn how to create a strong password.

Still can't get in? Consider creating a replacement Google Account. When you do, you can follow these steps to avoid getting locked out of your Google Account.

Note: An inactive Google Account is an account that has not been used within a 2-year period. Google reserves the right to delete an inactive Google Account and its activity and data if you are inactive across Google for at least two years. Learn more about the Inactive Google Account Policy.
