If you’ve added an email address to your Reddit account, you can reset your password and log in. Unfortunately, if you haven’t added an email address, you’re locked out of your account until you can remember your password. (It’s sad, we know. But there’s no way for us to know if it’s your account.)
To reset your password, follow these steps:
Under the Sign In button, tap the Forgot password link.
(Note: If you’re using the old version of Reddit, the link is reset password.)
Enter your Reddit username and email address, then tap Email Me. If your Reddit username and email address match, an email with a link to reset your password will be sent to your email address. (If you don’t remember your email or are getting stuck at this step, learn how to get help.)
Click on the link in your email to reset your password.
Enter and confirm your new password, then tap Set Password.
