Problems with Forgot Password? Here’s How to Reset It

We live in a world where passwords are required to access everything from your Gmail and your bank account to Windows 10 and your Forgot password? You're not alone. A 2020 survey by NordPass indicated that the average person has about 100 passwords for various apps and accounts. No wonder you forget them from time to time.

Fortunately, most companies understand this and make it simple to reset your account password. However, that process usually requires you to enter the phone number or email address you used to sign up for the account. It's easy if you still have that number or email, but if not, you may find yourself locked out of whatever account you're trying to get into.

Besides, resetting a password is stressful:

  • Is it strong enough to protect your private information?
  • Will you even remember it the next time you try to log in?
  • What about if that reset password email takes forever to arrive, and you need to get into the account immediately?
  • What happens if you've forgotten the answers to your security questions? (Was Bella really your favorite pet, after all?)

Fortunately, DoNotPay can help you recover your and your own WiFi network to Apple ID, Discord, Steam, Instagram, and any other account.

How to Reset Your Forgotten Password by Yourself

If you're still using the same email address, the process if you forgot your account is pretty straightforward:

  1. Go to
  2. Click "sign-in"
  3. Select "reset password"
  4. Enter your email address or phone number associated with your account
  5. An email will be sent to that address with password reset instructions

That process requires you to know your Samsung ID. If you can't remember, you'll first have to find your ID:

  1. Go to
  2. Click "sign-in"
  3. Select "Find ID"
  4. Enter your first name, last name, and birth date
  5. Your ID email will be partially displayed

If you still don't remember your ID or if you don't have access to that email address anymore, you'll have to contact support:

  1. Go to
  2. In the lower right corner, click the blue button that says "Contact"
  3. You can message or call

If call volume is high, prepare to wait on hold until someone can assist you. It can be a frustrating and time-consuming process, and even if you manage to reset your password easily, you still have to come up with an effective new password and try to remember it for next time. Fortunately, there's an easier way: DoNotPay can help you reset your —and other passwords, too.
