Need to Log In to Chegg but Forgot Your Password? Here's How to Reset It!

When you're using an on-demand learning platform like Chegg, "forgot password" is not a realization you want to make when you need to get your coursework done. It creates a mad scramble where you're working against deadlines as you try desperately to log in. It's simple enough to enter your email address, but then you have to wait for the reset password email to arrive in your inbox, which can take up to half an hour—if it arrives at all. If not, you may have to submit again and wait, again.

It's stressful and time-consuming, which is not what you need as a busy student, especially when you consider that Chegg is not the only password you have to remember. You probably have dozens if not hundreds of apps and accounts, including Facebook, Instagram, Apple ID, Samsung, Gmail, Windows 10, Discord, and many others, and you have to remember passwords (or, more likely, forget and have to reset passwords) for all of them.

Fortunately, you don't have to tackle this on your own. DoNotPay can help you reset passwords for any account, from and Steam to your own WiFi. Learn more about what to do when you forget your password.

How to Reset Your Chegg Forgotten Password On Your Own

As with many companies, Chegg offers a password reset option on their website:

  1. Go to the Chegg sign-in page
  2. Click "forgot password"
  3. Enter your email address, confirm you're not a robot, and click "reset password"
  4. Wait for the password reset email and follow the instructions

This is all well and good, unless that email doesn't arrive—or unless you no longer have access to the email address you used to sign up for Chegg. In these cases, you may have to take additional steps, depending upon the circumstances:

  • Wait 30 minutes for the reset email to arrive
  • Check your spam folder to see if the email was directed there
  • Double-check that you didn't make a typo when entering your email address
  • Fill out the password reset form a second time
  • Make sure the password reset link hasn't expired

If you still can't get into your account, you will have to contact support:

  • Call Chegg at 855-477-0177
  • Text Chegg at 408-351-0942

Hopefully, you won't have to wait on hold before you can get the help you need to access your account. Meanwhile, you're wasting precious study time.

Instead of fussing about this when you forget your Chegg password, turn to DoNotPay. We can make it easy to reset your password and get back into your account to help you save time and ease your frustration and anxiety about completing your coursework on time.
