How Do I Delete an Old Post If I Don't Have Access to My Email Address or Password?

This article addresses the problem of deleting a post you made on when you no longer remember the email and password associated with your account. Because every account is associated with a Google account and email, instructions are provided for recovering that email, and then for using it to recover the missing password.

This can be especially problematic if you suddenly realize that you should delete an old blog post there and can no longer access your account. If you can't remember the email address or password associated with your account, you may be able to use the Google account recovery tool to log in again.

  1. Go to Google's account recovery page.
  2. Enter the phone number of the phone you had linked to the account in the text box provided. Google will text a confirmation code to that phone.
  3. Enter the confirmation code. You will be given recovery information for your Google account, including a list of usernames associated with your phone number. Find the email that was associated with your account.
  4. Go to's forgotten password page. Enter the Google email address you just recovered in the lower text field.
  5. Click on the Lookup button.
  6. You will be sent a code to reset your account password.
  7. Log in to your account with the new password.

From there, you can easily delete the blog post.
