Manage or delete G Suite users

You can use Google Domains to perform some G Suite user management tasks, including:

Reset a user's password

If a user loses access to their account, you may need to reset their password. Follow the steps below:

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
  2. Select the name of your domain.
  3. Open the menu Menu.
  4. Click Email.
  5. Under "Get a custom email address," find the user whose password you want to reset, and click Edit.
  6. Click Reset password by the user’s name.
  7. Enter the email address where you’d like to send a new temporary password.  Use an address that’s not the user’s G Suite email address, as they don't have access to that address.
  8. Click Reset password.

Change a user’s name

When a user changes their first or last name, you can update their G Suite account information accordingly. Follow the steps below:

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
  2. Select the name of your domain.
  3. Open the menu Menu.
  4. Click Email.
  5. Under "Get a custom email address," find the user, and click Edit to update the name. 
  6. Click Save.
To change a user’s email address, sign in to your G Suite Admin Console. Follow the instructions to change a user’s name and email address.

Delete a user

In some cases, you may need to delete a G Suite user, for example, if someone leaves your company. Follow the steps below:

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
  2. Select the name of your domain.
  3. Open the menu Menu
  4. Click Email.
  5. Under "Get a custom email address," find the user you'd like to delete and click Delete.
  6. Click Delete.

You have 5 days to restore a deleted user account.

When you delete a user account, all of that user’s email and account data is also deleted. We recommend taking these steps to prepare for deleting an account. If you’re not sure if you need to delete a user, you also have the option to suspend a user from the G Suite Admin Console.
