    How to recover Gmail password

    Before illustrating all the various steps you will need to perform for I will recover the password of Gmail, there is one thing that is good for you to keep in mind. By carrying out the password recovery procedure I mentioned in the introduction of the article, you will not have your old password back but you can set a new one to re-enter your e-mail account. Having made this necessary premise, I would say that we can proceed.


    To recover the Gmail password from computer, the first thing you need to do is click here to connect to the Gmail login web page. Next, indicate theemail address of your account in the appropriate text field and presses the button NEXT. At this point, click on the link Forgot password? and provide the last password you remember. If you don't remember any, press the link Try a different method until you are offered a password recovery method that suits you.

    In my example, I'll use an alternate email address that I had previously set up on my Gmail account as a recovery method. If you are offered a different one, follow the simple instructions you see on the screen to recover your account.

    If you have also been offered the recovery of the account by using an alternative email address, press the button Send and wait for the account recovery code to be sent to the address in question. Then open the message containing the verification code, type it in the text field Insertion codice and presses the button NEXT.

    Finally, fill in the fields Create password e Confirmation with the new access key you want to use to access the inbox of your Gmail account and presses the blue button Change Password to save the changes. Finally, click on the link Continue your Gmail to log into your account and that's it.

    I remind you that, by changing the password to access Gmail, the one through which you log into your Google account will also be changed. The Google account and the Gmail account, in fact, coincide with each other and the modification of the access credentials for one implies the modification of the access credentials for the other as well (and vice versa).

    Smartphones and tablets

    You would like to try to recover your Gmail account password directly from smartphones and tablets? To do this, start theGmail app on your Android or iOS device, press on the voice Log in located at the bottom, tap on the item Google from the menu that opens and consent to the use of Google com to log in. Now, provide theemail address of the Gmail account whose password you want to recover (or tap your name e last name, if you had saved your login information), presses the link Forgot password? and type in the appropriate text field the last password you remember.

    If you don't remember any in particular, tap on the link Try a different method until you are offered a password recovery method that suits you. If, as in my case, you have opted for recovery using an alternative email address, press the button Send and wait for the numeric code for account recovery to be sent to you via email. As soon as you receive it, type the relevant code into the text field Insertion codice e fai tap sul pulsating NEXT.

    Next, indicate the new password you want to use to log into Gmail by typing it in the text fields Create password e Confirmation and press pulsating Change Password to save the changes made. The changes, of course, will also affect your Google account, since, as I said earlier, it is closely related to the Gmail account.
