Google does not provide a way to explicitly recover a lost password, but with a few simple steps you can change your password to something else if you've lost or forgotten your current password. This process is identical no matter which Android device you are using. In fact, since the process is done entirely within a Web browser, you could also reset your password from a computer or tablet.


Step 1

Open the Web browser on your Android device, navigate to a Google sign-in page and then tap "Need help."
