How can I retrieve a deleted account? I used it a few years ago. I can remember the e-mail but not the password. When I tried to enter a certain password which I used (as far as I remember) it says:

There are no Google Accounts that match your information.

How can I have it again?


If you've followed the steps to recover an account and Google is saying that no such account exists, you're out of luck. That account is permanently deleted.

According to Google Support, deleted accounts can be recovered if you attempt to recover them within 2-3 weeks of their deletion. Beyond that they're gone forever.

Since Google does not recycle usernames, no one will ever be able to use that account again.

When (if) you make a new account, be sure to log into it every few months so this doesn't happen again.
