The Administrator account has the following characteristics:
- It cannot be deleted.
- It cannot be removed from the Administrators group.
- It is not counted in your amount of licenses.
- It can be in an Active or Inactive status, like all other user accounts.
- It is not meant to be used as a standard user
- If activated, a password will need to be created in order to login to the domain.
If you forget your password and you are a Kintone administrator, you can reset your password via the email link, or another administrator of the platform can reset it.
See Changing a User's Password.
The following procedure is for those who started the free trial before September 8, 2019. If you are the only administrator for your domain, forgot your password, and started the free trial on or after September 8, 2019, contact us. For details on the start date, see How to Check the Trial Start Date.
If you are the only administrator for your domain and you are not able to reset the password via email, you will need to create a Temporary Administrator account using Kintone Store to log back into your domain.

Click Reset Password. If you forgot your email address contact us.

In the password reset email, click the URL to reset your password. On the webpage that this links to, enter your new password, confirm it, and then click Save.

Now, visit your Kintone domain (i.e. https://mycompany.kintone.com).
Login with the Login name provided in the email, and the password you set in step 9.
