Nearly everything is more accessible and available than ever in this age of the internet. However, another, much less intriguing thing has also become more accessible: inflation. Additionally, nobody likes inflation, unlike the majority of other readily available items. Be it soaring auto gasoline costs, hefty newspaper prices, or Netflix subscription fees. Everything is quickly escalating. All costs, including those for housing, power, and even mobile phones, are rising quickly.
We can’t really do anything about overall inflation, unfortunately. But there is undoubtedly a fix for rising mobile bills. And TextNow, a technology that has been making calling and messaging affordable since 2009, is the answer.
TextNow is a terrific approach to combat the rising costs of the conventional calling and messaging system because it offers free phone numbers as well as calling and texting services at incredibly low rates.
But if you somehow lose access to your account, everything could stop. And it’s even worse if you can’t regain your account since you don’t have access to your email! Now, what can you do?
Keep reading to learn whether it’s possible to retrieve your TextNow account without an email and what other choices you have.
How to Recover TextNow Account Without Email
One of the few fundamental requirements for opening a new TextNow account is an email address. And the email serves as your main login option once you’ve finished creating your account.
However, the email address is not the only way to access your account on any given online platform. You can connect your TextNow account to accounts on websites like Google, Facebook, and Apple.
Logging in is made much easier and more simple after you link your TextNow account with one of these services. To quickly log into your account, all you have to do is tap either the Continue with Google or Continue with Apple option on the login screen.
But why are we explaining to you how to access your account? Because you can regain access to your TextNow account using this additional login method!
Trick #1: Recover your TextNow account with your Apple Id or Facebook:
It is fairly easy. Your Facebook and Apple accounts are still accessible even if you forget your TextNow password and lose access to your email, right?
In actuality, if you use an iPhone, your Apple account is always active. Similar to this, you are probably logged into your account on the browser or the Facebook app if you use Facebook frequently.
If any of these circumstances apply to you and your Facebook or Apple account is linked to TextNow, you can access your TextNow account by clicking the Continue with Facebook or Continue with Apple button on the login page.
The best thing is that you can still log into Facebook and Apple with your phone number and Apple Id even if you can’t recall your email address. You can safely log in this way without giving anyone access to your email address.
You can change your old email address to another one you can access once you’ve entered into your TextNow account.
Trick #2: Change your TextNow email address:
From your account settings page, you can quickly change your TextNow email address. To do that, adhere to following steps:
Step 1: Launch the TextNow application or website and sign in to your account using one of the techniques described above.
Step 2: After successfully logging into your account, touch on the three parallel lines in the top-left corner to reveal the navigation menu.
Step 3: To access your TextNow options, tap on the options gear in the top-right corner of the navigation pane.
Step 4: On the Settings tab, you’ll find a number of options. SelectAccount.
Step 5: Tap on Email Address under Account settings to view your current email address. After entering the new address, press OK. Tap on it to update it.
Step 6: Look for a verification link in your email inbox. Click the link to validate your email address.
You already know that if you’ve ever connected your TextNow account to Facebook or Apple, you can quickly get access to your account by checking in using these services. What transpires, though, if you haven’t connected your TextNow account to any other platforms?
Your email address is the sole way to restore your account in this situation. Additionally, your username is the only other way to log in if you lose access to your email.
You can log in to TextNow using the username you selected when you joined up. When logging in, a username may be used rather than an email address. You can access TextNow by entering your username and password if you can remember them.
Sadly, TextNow won’t let you in if you can’t remember your email or password or if you haven’t connected your account with Facebook or Apple. And in that situation, you might have to make a new account with different login information.
In the end
TextNow is a fantastic tool for making cheap calls and texts to people. And this is the major factor for the platform’s success in attracting such a sizable user base across the US.
However, in order to recover your account if you forget your TextNow password, you’ll need your email address. If you don’t have access to that email address, what happens? We have attempted to address that in this blog.
