Tutorial on Recovering the Google Account Password

If you have linked your phone number to your Google account, you will be able to use it to recover your account. Note that if you have not accessed your account for 9 months or more, Gmail may have considered your account as abandoned and may have deleted it from the server. In this case, account recovery is no longer possible. 

1. Open a browser on your PC and head over to the Accounts page on the Google website. Once the page loads, enter in your Gmail email address whose password you want to recover.

If you don’t remember your email address, click on Find my account and it will help you to find your Gmail account.
