In this age of the internet, almost everything is more available and accessible than ever before. But something else– a far less interesting thing– has also become more readily available: inflation. And unlike most other easily available things, inflation is not something anyone likes. Be it rising fuel prices for your vehicle, high newspaper rates, or your Netflix subscription charges. Everything is increasing at a rapid rate. House rent, electricity bills, and even mobile bills– everything is going up steeply.
Well, there’s nothing specific we can do about inflation in general. But there is surely a solution for tackling rising mobile bills. And this solution is TextNow– a platform that’s making calling and messaging affordable since 2009.
From providing a free phone number to calling and texting services at super-affordable rates, TextNow is a great way to tackle the rising prices of the traditional calling and texting system.
But all of this can come to a halt if you somehow lose access to your account. And it’s even worse when you don’t have your email access to recover your account! What can you do now?
Hang on till the end to find out if it’s possible to recover your TextNow account without email and what other options you have to get your account back.
How to Recover TextNow Account Without Email
An email address is one of the few basic things you need to create a new TextNow account. And when you are done creating your account, the email acts as the primary method of logging in.
But as with any other online platform, the email address is not the only way to log into your account. On TextNow, you can link your account with your accounts on other platforms, such as Google, Facebook, and Apple.
Once you link your TextNow account with any of these platforms, logging in becomes much more convenient and easy. You can simply tap on the Continue with Google or Continue with Apple button on the Login screen to log into your account within seconds.
But why are we telling you stuff about logging into your account? Because you can use this supplementary login method to recover your TextNow account!
Trick #1: Recover your TextNow account with your Apple Id or Facebook:
It’s pretty simple. Even if you forget your TextNow password and don’t have access to your email, you still have access to your Facebook and Apple accounts, right?
In fact, if you use an iPhone, you are logged into your Apple account at all times. Similarly, if you are active on Facebook, you are likely logged into your account on the browser or the Facebook app.
If any of these cases apply to you and you have linked your Facebook or Apple account with TextNow, you can use the Continue with Facebook or Continue with Apple button on the login page and get into your TextNow account through your accounts on these platforms.
Here’s the best part: Even if you don’t remember your email address, you can still log into Facebook with your phone number and Apple with your Apple Id. This way, you can log in safely without accessing your email address.
Once you’ve logged into your TextNow account, you can replace your old email address with another one you can access.
Trick #2: Change your TextNow email address:
You can easily change your TextNow email address from your account settings page. Follow these steps to do that:
Step 1: Open the TextNow app or website and log into your account using the methods mentioned above.
Step 2: Once you are successfully logged into your account, open the navigation menu by tapping on the three parallel lines in the top-left corner.
Step 3: Tap on the Settings gear in the top-right corner of the navigation pane to go to your TextNow settings.
Step 4: You’ll see several options on the Settings page. Select Account.
Step 5: On the Account settings section, tap on Email Address to view your current email address. Tap on it to edit it, and press OK after entering the new address.
Step 6: Check your email inbox for a verification link. Tap on the link to verify your email.
We just told you that if you have previously linked your TextNow account with Facebook or Apple, you can easily retrieve your account by logging in using these platforms. But what happens if you haven’t linked your TextNow with any other platform?
In this case, your email address is the only option to recover your account. And if you lose access to your email, your username is the only other way to log in.
You can use the username you chose when you signed up on TextNow. A username can be used instead of an email address while logging in. So if you remember your username, you can log into your TextNow by entering the username and password.
But if you don’t remember the password and email and have not linked your account with Facebook or Apple, there is sadly no way TextNow will let you in. And in that case, you might need to create a new account with other credentials.
In the end
TextNow is an awesome platform to call and text people at considerably lower prices. And this is the main reason why the platform has managed to garner such a large user base across the US.
But if you forget your TextNow account password, you’ll need your email address to recover your account. But what if you don’t have access to that email address? That’s what we have tried to answer in this blog.
The methods mentioned in this blog can help you recover your TextNow account without your email address. Follow these steps to recover your account, and tell us whether you were successful.
