A brief but very useful article on recovering the G-mail password. In India, most of the e-mail users have G-mail account. So, the present article would be useful to all such e-mail account holders.

If a person forgets his/her G-mail password, he/she should visit Google's account recovery page, enter his/her account information, and click Next. If the person earlier linked a phone number to his/her g-mail account, he/she can use it to retrieve the password using a verification code sent by SMS.

In case the person doesn't have access to recovery email, phone, or other option, he/she will still be able to recover G-mail password by manually verifying the identity. He/She needs to visit the Google account recovery page and enter his/her e-mail address and click “Continue". Then he/she has to click “I don't know" option for the password and choose the “Verify your identity" option. After answering all questions correctly/accurately, the password will be retrieved.
