Having a Gmail account is very common in today’s time. But some people close their Gmail accounts due to their mistakes or forget their password. Today I will tell you easy ways How to Recover Gmail Account.
To recover your Gmail account, first, you have to open the official link of Gmail Account Recovery.
When you open the page through this link, you will be asked some questions regarding security, be prepared for that.

If possible, keep these things in mind to make Gmail Account Recovery easier:
- Use the computer, phone, or tablet you previously used to sign in to your account.
- Use the same browser you always do, such as Chrome or Safari.
- Be where you normally sign in, such as at home or work.
- By following this, Google knows that it is actually you who is trying to recover your Google Account.
During the account recovery process, Google will ask you a series of security questions that will be personalized for you based on the level of security of your account and the recovery options you’ve previously set up.
Don’t worry if you don’t remember exactly, answer these questions as best you can. Even if you give a wrong answer, Google will not stop any process done by you or will not exit the recovery process.
Tip: If you’re asked for the last password you remembered, enter the most recent password you can remember.
If you don’t remember your recent password, use a previous password that you remember. The more recent it is, the better.
If you can’t remember a previous password, guess it & try it.
Depending on your account settings, you may receive a security question asking you to verify a prompt or enter a code. There are a few ways Google uses prompts and codes in the recovery process, including:
- A code may be sent to your recovery email or phone number.
- Can be prompted for a code from your Authenticator app.
- A Prompt can be sent directly to your device.
- If you are asked for a code or hint that you cannot access, you can continue to the next question by selecting Try again or I don’t have my phone.
You may be asked to enter an email address where you can be contacted regarding your account recovery request. Enter an email that you can see by logging in now.
If you don’t have another email address, you may want to consider creating a new email address for Google to contact you.
Tip: If Google sent you an email but you can’t find it, check your Spam or Junk folder for an email titled “Your Google Support Inquiry”.
Reset your password on the link of recovery mail or prompt. Create a strong password and don’t repeat passwords you’ve previously used on your Google Account.
