Password Reset Email Issues

If you’re having trouble with the password reset email, it is possible that you created your Square account using a different email address than the one you are entering into the email address field. Try these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Double-check that the email address you entered in the password reset field is the same email used to access your Square account.

  2. Confirm the email address that you used to create your Square account by looking through your email inboxes for emails from Square.

  3. Check your spam folder, because Square’s emails are occasionally sorted out by spam filters.

  4. Take a look at these email delivery troubleshooting tips.

  5. If you see the message ‘This token has been used’, visit from your browser to confirm that you are signed out of the dashboard. Reset your password again.

Update Your Email Address

If you are unable to log in to your Square account and you need to change the email address on your account – we can update it with your help. Contact our team by telephone if:

  • You can’t remember the email address you used to create your account.

  • You are not able to access the email inbox associated with your Square account.

  • You do not see emails from Square in your inbox – there may have been a typo in your email address when you created your Square account.
