My phone had gotten stolen in a casino and i cant remember my password and when I put in the last one I remember it says I changed it 8 months ago (around the time my phone had gotten stolen), my recovery phone number on that account is the one that was attached to that phone! I had no second email address for recovery email. I have gone through there recover account hoops more than a dozen times and don't know what else I can try. I mainly want my google photos as my SD card was also in the phone stolen one. How do I recover and verify its my account?
Unfortunately, if, when you created the account, you have not registered an alternate recovery email address or phone number to which you have access to receive a reset code, you cannot prove that you are the account's legitimate owner. Hence account recovery is absolutely impossible and there is no way around it.
