Where to go to change your Valorant password if you forget it

If you need to change your password for Valorant because you can’t remember it, you should go to the Riot Account Recovery page. When you are there, make sure you have the region you play in selected and input your Riot username. If you can’t remember what that is, select the Forgot Username link at the bottom.

After you input a username that is associated with a Riot account, your email should soon receive an email that looks like the one below. If you do not see it, be sure to check your Junk Folder. It should appear very quickly, though. If nothing appears, input your username on the website again to make sure you entered it correctly. If you are still having problems getting the email to arrive in your inbox, hit the Contact Player Support link at the bottom of the page where you input the username.
