If you take a fast action, you may be able to recover your account, but you only have two days to do so.
These two days are not guaranteed. The quicker you move the better.
1. Go to the Google Password Assistance page. On the sign-in page, tab on “I’m having other problems signing in'” option. Enter your deleted email address, and select “Continue”.
2. Enter your old password.You will be directed to a page that asks for the most recent password you remember. Enter it, and then select “Continue”.
3. Select the “Submit a recovery request” option.When you enter your password, you will be directed to a page that informs you that your account was deleted. You will see a link to a recovery request form. Click it.
- If you do not receive a link to the recovery request, then your account has already been permanently deleted. There is no left option that you can do.
4. Complete the verification process.Once you’ve clicked on the recovery request form, you’ll have a series of verification steps to complete. Enter an email address that you have access to, and answer the questions about your password, your last account access, and when you created your account. Google will use this information to verify that you are the actual owner.
- If you don’t have any of this information, you may still be okay. Submit your claim anyway and explain your circumstances, then wait for your response.
5. Google will send an email to the address you provided. This email may take a little time to appear. Check that email and select the enclosed link to create a new password for your account. You have successfully resurrected your deleted account.
Note: that you may get an email that says your “account was deleted and is no longer recoverable.” If you get that message, your Gmail account is gone forever.
