Recover a recently deleted Google Account

If you deleted your Google Account, you have a short amount of time to try to recover it. You can then sign in with this account to Gmail, Google Play, and other Google products.

To see if you can recover your account:

  1. Visit the password assistance page.
  2. Select I'm having other problems signing in.
  3. Follow the steps on the screen to verify your identity and attempt to restore your account.

Note: You may not be able to recover your account if you linked another email address, like Hotmail or Yahoo, to your Google Account.
