How To Check My Gmail Password

You may find yourself in a situation where you need to check your Gmail password but you can’t remember it. Unfortunately, for security reasons, Google doesn’t allow you to view your password after you’ve set it up. However, there are some steps you can take if you’ve forgotten your password or if you need to change it. Let’s take a look.

Recovering Your Password

If you’ve forgotten your password, all is not lost. Google has a process in place for account recovery that can help you reset your password.

Step 1: Go to the Gmail sign-in page and click on “Forgot password”.

Step 2: You will be prompted to enter the last password you can remember. If you can’t remember any, click on “Try another way”.

Changing Your Password

If you can remember your password but want to change it, you can do so by following these steps:

Step 1: Open your Google account settings by clicking on your profile photo in the top right corner of the Gmail inbox page and selecting “Manage your Google Account”.

Step 2: In the left-hand menu, select “Security”.

Step 3: Under the “Signing in to Google” section, select “Password”.

Step 4: You will be prompted to sign in again for security purposes. After you sign in, you will be able to change your password.


While you can’t directly view your Gmail password for security reasons, Google has mechanisms in place to help you recover or change your password when needed. Remembering your password is crucial, but if you do forget it, Google’s recovery process is here to help. Always make sure to create a strong, unique password and change it regularly to maintain the security of your account.
