    How to recover your VKontakte password saved in your browser

    The basic, yet working, way to recover your account page password is through the browser settings you used to successfully authorize to your profile.

    The thing is that desktop and mobile browsers store the login data for autofill forms (not always, but as a rule). You can access them using their settings

    Method 1: access the main browser settings

    To retrieve your password, you have to access the following sections:

    1. In Google Chrome: type chrome://settings/passwords in the browser address bar and go to this address.
    2. In Opera: enter opera://settings/passwords in the browser and go to this address.
    3. In the search box enter "vc".
    4. Click the "Show" button next to the VKontakte address.
    5. When prompted, enter the PC Administrator password.
    6. The desired password will be displayed instead of the asterisks.

    Sethod 2: viewing password through the original html

    If you have forgotten your VKontakte password saved in your browser in the form of asterisks (or dots), you can easily recall it.

    How to do this:

    1. Open the login page of your profile.
    2. Put your cursor on the password line.
    3. The password will be displayed in a text field in the form of asterisks.
    4. Click the right mouse button to open the context menu.
    5. Choose "View item code" or "Inspect item" (each browser has a different name).
    6. The developer window opens with the html page code.
    7. The mouse pointer will be placed in the field with the entry:
    1. Replace on this line the entry:
    1. The password figures appear.
    Note. The same way you can recover the login data from another account, but VKontakte administration does not recommend this and bears no responsibility for the consequences.

    Restoring your VKontakte page password without phone

    Restoring your VKontakte access is quite easy with the phone number, but how to open the page if you have not enough data to log in to your account?

    1. There is a special box when restoring: "If you don't remember the data or don't have access to the phone, click here".
    2. The system will ask you to enter a link to your account.

    1. Then you have the possibility to enter the old phone number, the available phone number, the registration e-mail, one of the old passwords (you used to log in with).
    2. You enter the data you remember on the page and within 24 hours the help desk will re-establish access.

    Users may restore the page by mail or by entering a login. How to do it:

    1. After providing the data you will need to write the name of the account.
    2. Then the system asks for confirmation of the page to be restored
    3. A avatar with the first and last name will be displayed
    4. You must confirm that this is the page from which you want to restore the password.
    5. Click "Yes, this is the page you need"
    6. A form will ask you to enter a new phone number and receive a confirmation code by SMS.
    7. In the special form the new password must be indicated, repeat it
    8. Be sure to write the data down in a safe place (notepad).
    9. Changing the phone number if you forgot your VKontakte password is allowed for a limited number of times.

    We already told you about VKontakte mobile app for Android. If all else fails, try installing this application on your phone and accessing your page.

    Restore VKontakte page after virus

    After your computer or phone is infected with a virus, the user may encounter an offer of paid VKontakte page restore via SMS in their browser window. Some viruses related to VKontakte ask for activation code for Kontakte, which also can be obtained by transferring money to certain payment systems. In most cases, even after sending an SMS or money transfer the social network page remains blocked.

    How to unlock it:

    1. First of all, be sure to check your computer or mobile phone for viruses. If you had your page password stolen once, chances are it will be done again.
    2. Download Doctor Web antivirus for your phone
    3. Run the antivirus scan
    4. Wait for the result.
    5. For the correct recovery of your social networking page, you need to access the hosts file in the following path C:{Windows\system32\drivers\etc.
    6. Open the hosts file using Notepad.
    7. If this file contains entries with the host and other social networks, delete those lines.
    8. Maybe there will be 2 hosts /files, in this case check the second one also for redundancies.
    9. After that, in most cases access is restored.

    Edit the hosts file which might contain the mentioning of VKontakte

    If after deleting the lines from the file by itself no changes have occurred and the virus keeps blocking the page,

    1. Try to download the original and correct folder etc
    2. Download the correct hosts file available at: //
    3. Unzip the file and replace the old etc folder with the new one.
    4. Reboot your PC,
    5. Log in to your VKontakte account again.

    Tip of the day. If you want to protect yourself from viruses on your Android smartphone and tablet, make sure you download mobile antivirus!

    How to unfreeze your VK profile page

    When logging into VKontakte, site asks to link page to phone number due to suspicious activity? We need to figure out the reason for this situation. Enter your phone number, and if a message appears asking you to send a paid code to the number - you will be convinced that there is a virus on your computer, which has nothing to do with the messages from VKontakte tech support. The social network will not ask you to send messages to any numbers, on the contrary, the site itself sends the codes automatically.

    To restore a VKontakte page, you have to do the same steps with the replacement of the hosts file as described in the last subsection.

    Remove VKontakte page and restore it

    Remove VKontakte page quite simply:

    1. On the left side of the social network open the "My settings".
    2. At the very bottom of the page that appears, you will see "You can delete your page".
    3. In the list choose the reason for deletion: this information will be displayed in your friends feed.
    4. You may uncheck this box and you will not show the deletion of your page in your feed.
    5. If you do not indicate a reason, you will see the entry "user silently deleted his page" on your behalf.

    To restore a deleted VKC page:

    1. Log in with your password
    2. Go to the "Recover your page" link.
    3. The deleted page keeps the information for one year.
    4. If you forget the address, you can try to find it in the list of your friends or in the groups, to recall it later.

Maybe I need to buy a new phone number for this, I'm willing to do it, just to restore my old page. HELP!

    Answer . To restore your VKontakte access, you need to restore your phone sim card. Although you won't be able to get back the contacts saved on the sim card, when you restore the number, you will be able to access your VK page. All you need to do is to contact your mobile operator through which you issued the sim card and phone number. You may do that either through the Call Center, by calling the operator and giving the code word or directly to the nearest office of mobile operator.

    If the phone number has already been given to another user, you will need to contact them by calling and explaining your problem. Then you will probably be able to send a code to his number, restore your vkontakte page and change the phone number.

Help, how can I recover my VK password? There may be many reasons. Maybe you are using the Russian keyboard layout instead of the English one.
