How to Reset Your Forgotten PayPal Password by Yourself

PayPal requires an email and password to allow access into an account. However, you have to jump several hoops depending on how hard the company has to work to verify you and how much you have forgotten.

Here's how to recover your password if:

You Forgot Your Password

If you forgot your password, but you can recall the email you used to open the account:

  1. Enter the email and then click on the "forgot password" tab below
  2. Select the "Get started" button in the bubble that pops up to start your password recovery
  3. Type your email address in the "Forgot your password?" pop-up screen.
  4. Enter the Captcha code
  5. Click the "Continue" button

PayPal will then send temporary passwords and instructions to reset your PayPal account to the email address associated with the account.

If You Cannot Remember Your Email Address

Like most accounts, the email you used to open your PayPal account is critical in the recovery process. If you forgot the email, PayPal gives you a chance to make three guesses.

  1. Go to Paypal, and on the top right corner, click on the "Login" button
  2. On the new page that opens, click on "Forgot password"
  3. Now click on "forgot your email?"
  4. You will see a new page with instructions to enter up to 3 email addresses you may have used to create your PayPal account. Fill in the spaces provided and click "next"
  5. Paypal will check to find if there's a match for the three emails

Also, you must have access to that email once you remember it. Therefore, if you lose access to your email, you lose your account too. However, it doesn't have to get to that point.
