Common Way to Reset/Change Gmail Password

  1. Go to the Gmail login page and select the option 'I Don't know my password.
  2. Enter your email address in the relevant tab and click on 'continue'.
  3. On the next page, it asks you to enter the last password you remember. In case, you forgot the last password, then skip the step by clicking the link 'I Don't Know.
  4. The next page asks you to verify the CAPTCHA verification for proving the human verification. If the CAPTCHA appeared in a distorted order, then click on refresh for getting a new code, or else click the Headset icon for getting the verification code through audio.
  5. Then, on the next page select an option for receiving the account verification code. You can find two options there:
    1. A text message (SMS)
  6. An automated phone call

If both the options didn't seem to work for you, then click on the link 'I can't access my Phone' and verify your alternative email ID hint shown there and click on Continue.

  1. Check now your mobile number/alternate email address for the verification code. Enter that code in the relevant area of password recovery.
  2. Once after the verification, you will get a tab where you can gain access to your Gmail by configuring a new set of passwords. Things To Remember:
