How to Contact Google


This wikiHow teaches you how to access Google's support resources. You cannot call or email directly Google's customer support team; in fact, the only time you can talk to Google is when requesting support for a specific item (e.g., your Android phone) or sending a press-related email. In virtually all circumstances, contacting Google will not solve your problem. Since you cannot contact Google for support for services such as Gmail or YouTube, you can use the Google Support site for instructions. Keep in mind that many numbers and email addresses claiming to belong to Google are actually scams.

Unless you're a member of the press or a G Suite administrator, your ways of contacting Google are limited to sending old-fashioned snail mail and applying for a job. The only exceptions to this rule—Android support, Pixel support, and Google Drive support—are listed in the previous method.

Several scam numbers claiming to belong to Google are currently in circulation. To avoid getting scammed (or just wasting your time), only call a number that is specifically listed on a Google document. For example, you can call a number listed on a G Suite form, but not one found on a non-Google site. The same idea goes for email addresses and regular addresses. Google staff will never ask for your password in a phone or chat conversation.

If you don't mind sending a piece of snail mail and not receive a response, you can address your mail to 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043. Google is exceedingly unlikely to respond to snail mail, so don't do this with an urgent or sensitive item.[2]
