Have you ever accidentally deleted a Gmail contacts that you didn’t intend to delete?
Even worse, have you ever logged into your Gmail account and discovered that all of your contacts had mysteriously disappeared?
Unfortunately, these things happen from time to time, and we often don’t realize it until several days have gone by.
Luckily, it’s very easy to recover any Gmail contacts that were deleted within the last 30 days.
Gmail has a nifty “Restore Contacts” feature that works much the same way the “System Restore” utility in Microsoft Windows works.
In a nutshell, Gmail creates time-stamped backups of the contact list that we can use later to quickly and easily recover deleted contacts.
Follow these simple instructions to restore your deleted Gmail contact(s):
1 – Log in to your Gmail account, then click here to visit your Google Contacts page.
2 – In the left-hand column, click Trash.
3 – Check the box beside the contact you want to recover.
4 – Scroll back to the top and click Recover.
That’s all there is to it. The next time you accidentally delete a Gmail contact you’ll know how to quickly and easily restore it.
And by the way, you can use the procedure above to recover multiple deleted contacts if you need to.
