I Forgot My Password

If you have forgotten your password, you will need to create a new one. Follow these instructions:

  1. Click [Sign On].
  2. Enter the email address associated with your AbeBooks account, and then click the [Forgot your password?] button.

Within 10 minutes, we will send an email to you containing a link to a secure password reset page. When you receive the email:

  1. Click or copy/paste the link into the address bar of your browser.
  2. Enter your new password twice, and click [Save Changes].

A strong password is longer than 8 characters, contains random capitalization, numbers, and special characters, and is not easy to guess. Don’t use words or numbers relating to your personal information.

You will now be signed on.

Please wait for the reset email to arrive – do not request a new reset email before receiving the first.

The reset link will expire if not used within 24 hours. If you click an expired link, you will be asked to begin the process again.

If you request a second password email before receiving the first, the link in the first email will not work.

Remember to sign in to the correct AbeBooks website. For instance, if you have an account on AbeBooks.com, you cannot sign in on AbeBooks.co.uk.
