Friends, today we will tell you what you should do when you forget the password of your Gmail Id or you have lost it.
Actually Gmail id is very useful in today’s time and without it we have many such things which we cannot afford in which many things come. Today most of the countries use Gmail id but do you know that Gmail was invented in 1977.
There are a few different ways to verify your identity and recover (or reset) your password in Gmail. Gmail will walk you through it step-by-step.
Starting the password recovery process is very easy: Click the “Forgot Password” link on the Gmail sign-in page. You will then be shown a message asking you to enter the last password that you can remember.
If you can remember a correct password and set up a backup system, you will be asked to continue in a number of ways. If you don’t remember any of them, click “Try a different question”.
Update, 11/8/21: Google is no longer requesting that you enter any passwords that you remember. Instead, Gmail will arrive directly at your recovery email address to send you a code or ask for more information to help you recover your account.
The next option will send a code to a recovery email assuming you have a secondary recovery email (the one you set up when you first created your Gmail account).
Using this option will send a six-digit code to your secondary email account (which doesn’t have to be Gmail) that will allow you to set a new password and gain access to your account.
Check your mail on this secondary account to see the code, and then enter it to unlock a new password generator. New accounts may also have a phone number backup option.
Let’s say you don’t have access to the account you originally specified as a backup—then click “Try a different query” again. We’re now moving on to older, less secure methods of account security, with security questions like “what’s your mom’s maiden name”. You should be able to answer at least one of these.
At this point, create a new password and confirm it. Now you have access to your account again. Here’s how to choose a new password that is both secure and memorable.
After you set up a new password, Google will prompt you to check the security settings associated with your Gmail account. We highly recommend adding a phone number and a current backup email if you don’t already have these associated with your account.
They will allow easy retrieval via a 6-digit PIN delivered by email or text message.
Although Gmail previously supported security questions, it no longer allows you to add any new ones, only remove access to the old ones.
This is a measure because security questions suck at providing real security. Your old one will work until you manually delete it on this page.
