Hi please help. I have been locked out of my gmail, google pics, everything that was attached. I had my account set up so a confirmation number would get sent to my phone. I forgot all about that when I had to change number do to a crazy ex.. Pretty much the reason I had to set up 2 step anyways.. I've tried and tried to get in. I dont recall exactly when I set up this account. But all my kids pics and everything are locked in it.

Please help.

How did you get locked out of your account?

When is the last time you successfully accessed your account?

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do if you created the account on the mobile device you no longer have access to.

Always create accounts on a PC or Laptop (landline IP), and then attach a mobile number to it. That way, you can have multiple ways to recover the account!

If your mobile phone number was your recovery address, your should have updated your account before you changed it.

Your account is now lost forever and it will be deleted from the server in September which is 9 months after you last accessed it.
