Wordle Solver

Find my Wordle

Welcome to our Wordle Solver! If you’ve recently gotten hooked by Wordle, you’re not alone. Even before being featured in The New York Times, the game had surged in popularity, with thousands of new fans popping up across the globe. But with only one Wordle game a day, you don’t want to waste your chance to play. When you’re stuck or frustrated, use our Wordle Solver tool to find the answer and ensure your success streak remains intact. We wanted to make a solid Wordle helper page, so we also have great tips and strategies to make you a better Wordle player.

How to Use Our Wordle Solver

  1. In the first row of boxes, enter green (Placed) letters in the correct spot on the board. For instance, if you currently know that the letter ‘T’ is in the second slot of your Wordle word, enter 'T' in the second box. This section tells our tool which green letters you have already identified.
  2. Enter ‘yellow’ letters into the appropriate Valid Letters box. These are the yellow letters on your board, which you know will be contained within your word somewhere, but whose exact placement you have not yet identified. It is not necessary to place spaces between your letters.
  3. Enter ‘bad’ letters into the appropriate box. Bad letters are letters that you know are not in the word. These are the letters which have turned up dark gray on your Wordle game.
  4. Click the green ‘Update’ button. Once you’ve entered your letters into the appropriate text boxes, click the green ‘Update’ button and all possible results will appear below.
  5. Look at the best possible letters for next guess. Our tool offers two main sections to help you with your Wordle game. The first is the ‘Best Possible Letters’ section, which will suggest the letters most likely to be contained within the word. These letters will be arranged in order of probability, meaning you can prioritize which letters to include in your next guess.
  6. View the possible words list. Our tool also has a ‘Possible Words List’ which lists all of the possible words for your Wordle based on what letters you know so far. Depending on how far into your game you’ve gotten, this list could be hundreds of words long. However, as you advance in the game and build up your ‘bad words’ list, as well as find more letters to place on the board, you should see this list shrink significantly.
  7. Once you’ve played your next word on Wordle, update the entry boxes at the top of the page and click ‘find words’ to refresh the results. As you advance in the game, our suggestions will become more targeted.

How Did Wordle Get So Popular?

Wordle was first envisioned in 2020 by Josh Wardle, a Brooklyn-based software engineer. He created the game as a way to keep himself sharp during quarantine, and as a gift for his partner, Palak Shah, who loves word games. The two played the game amongst themselves for many months before they shared it in a family WhatsApp group, where it quickly became popular. Their family’s interest inspired Wardle to release the game to a global audience in November of 2021, where it has quickly become an internet favorite.

Perhaps the biggest puzzling game phenomenon since Sudoku in the early 2000s, Wordle’s user base has skyrocketed from only 90 players a day when the game was first released to over two million daily players today. Wardle attributes the game’s popularity to its simple interface and lack of monetization options, he told The New York Times. “I think people appreciate that there’s this little thing online that’s just fun,” Wardle said. “It’s not trying to do anything shady with your data or eyeball.” He added that the game’s once-a-day nature – he releases one puzzle each morning, and players must wait until the following day to return for another round – is likely also appealing, saying, “It’s something that encourages you to spend three minutes a day, and that’s it.”

Since it’s release, the game has been covered by such major media news outlets as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Guardian. Currently, Wordle has a basis of around 2,500 widely-recognizable English language words in it’s repertoire, meaning there are almost seven years of content at the ready. After that, it’s unclear what the future of Wordle will look like, with Wardle saying he isn’t sure if he wants to expand the game in any way. “It’s not my full-time job and I don’t want it to become a source of stress and anxiety in my life,” he told The Guardian.

Tips for Solving Wordles

As great as our Wordle Solver is, you probably also want to get better at solving Wordles on your own. Here are a few tips for you to think about on your next Wordle game:

  1. Be strategic with your first guess.

With nothing to go off of, it can be tempting to enter the first five-letter word that pops into your mind. But this lack of strategy risks wasting one of your six chances. For your first word, it’s important to pick something that has a lot of vowels and common consonants. For instance, you might want to use a word like ‘OUIJA’ which contains almost every vowel, and will be able to tell you almost immediately what vowels are in your word. Words like ‘AUREI’ or ‘ADIEU’ can be used to similar effect. You can also pick words with lots of common letters, like ‘ADULT’ or ‘BREAD’ which can also help you narrow down which letters are likely to be in your word. It’s essential to not pick a five-letter word with any repeated letters, as doing so means throwing away a great opportunity to learn!

  1. Before you play any word, always make sure it contains your green letters at the right spot; contains a yellow letter somewhere in the word; and does not contain any grey letters.

Although this may seem obvious, it’s a tip that bears repeating: make sure not to waste any of your opportunities with words that you know won’t fit the final word! Every single guess you make should be a possible winner, according to the information you have at a given time. If you want to test out potential letters, then find a potential word which includes that letter. Don’t simply come up with a random word. 

One good way to double-check your words before you play them is to have a separate piece of paper on which you write potential guesses. That way, before you play those words, you can double-check that the green and yellow letters are appropriate based off your previous guesses.

  1. When stumped, look to the keyboard at the bottom of the screen.

As you advance in the game, you’ll eliminate more and more options from the board. At this point, it can be helpful to look to the keyboard at the bottom of your screen for guidance on what to guess next. Once you’ve got only one or two slots open on your Wordle board, and only five or six letters left as options on your keyboard, it’s a simple matter of mixing and matching to find the right word.
