I can't access my gmail and I have tried me recovery email and although it confirms it is the right one, it won't let me recover. I am trying to gain access back, forgot the password, don't have a phone or device registered because this account was made a long time ago and the recovery email gets the code sent but after it says it can't be confirmed that the account is mine. It isnt inactive; I as logged in on my phone which broke and now with the new one, I cant access it! HELP! My school and personal stuff is in there and I cant get it!
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.
