Recover Gmail password: via phone number, security questions

Forgetting the password to your Gmail account can be a huge inconvenience, especially when it is linked to other Google services. If you have forgotten your password and can no longer access your Gmail account, here are a few quick steps to get it back.

How to recover your Gmail password?

  • On the Gmail sign-in page click on Forgot password.
  • You'll be asked to type the last password you remember:

  • If you don't remember it, click Try a different question.
  • Enter the secondary email address to receive a recovery email.
  • Enter the code into the corresponding window and you will regain access to your Gmail account. This way, you could set up a new password.
  • If you don't have another email linked to your Google account, you can also use your mobile phone and receive a verification code on it.

Google no longer supports security questions so there is no possibility to recover your password via them.

N.B. If you haven't accessed your account for 9 months or more, Gmail may have considered your account as abandoned and deleted it from the server. In this case, account recovery is no longer possible.
