For Gmail password recovery users are required to visit the accounts section on the website and then select the recovery option. There you are required to select the reason for which user is not able to log in to the account. These options are ‘I don’t know my password’, ‘I don’t know my username’,’ I’m having other problems signing in’. You are required to select ‘I don’t know my password’ option then enter the email address for which you want to change the password.

Gmail account recovery via security questions

If someone has lost the password of the Gmail account, there is the possibility of recovering the lost password with the help of a security question. When we create a Gmail account, Gmail asks about the security question for security reasons at that time. These security questions are useful for the password of the recovery account and to protect an unauthorized user's account. The user must follow this process to recover the lost password.

First, you must go to the Gmail sign-in page and enter the Gmail ID. "If someone does not remember the password, go to the link I forgot my password, now you will see the security questions that you already answered when creating the account." They have to write the answer to the security question. If they answered correctly then the account will be open. Now they have to go in the configuration options and then in the privacy option. Here you must click on the option Change password and enter the password according to the user's choice. After that all users can log in to the Gmail account with a new password.
