Gmial account recovery with date of birth:

Gmail is one of the most used web mail services. It allows to all users to send and receive emails. With a Gmail account users get access to other Google apps like Play store, Google photos, YouTube etc. While creating our Gmail account we select an ID and secure the account using a password. However sometimes we might forget this password and are unable to login. For such situations, Gmail allows users to recover their account by setting a new password.

You can use either your mobile number or an alternate email or security questions to recover account. So if you don’t have phone and email, then don’t worry. Use your security question like date of birth for recovery. For recovery use these steps.

Gmail account recovery steps:

  • Visit the sign-in page of Gmail.
  • Enter your email address there.
  • Then tap on ‘Next’.
  • Now below the space provided to enter password, a ‘Forgot Password’ option will be given. Select it.
  • The recovery process of the account will begin.
  • You can also go to Account recovery page and start recovery process directly.
  • The first step will be to enter any last password of your account that you remember.
  • In case you don’t remember any password, you can select ‘Try another way’ option.
  • Now the recovery options that you have enabled in the account will start appearing. If only one option is enabled then only it will show.
  • If you have linked your mobile number to your account then Gmail will send a code there. But because you do not have phone you need to select I don’t have my phone’ option.
  • If you have linked a recovery email with your account then Gmail will send a code there. But because you don’t have recovery email select ‘Try another way’ option.
  • Now your security questions that you selected during account creation will appear. These questions can be your date of birth, middle name, library card number etc.
  • You need to answer them correctly.
  • Your answers will verify you identity and then the page to reset password will open.
  • You can then create a strong password and save it.
