Method 1: Find Gmail Password through Recovery Email Or Phone

When you create a Google Account, it asks you to set up a recovery email address. This is specifically done for the purpose of helping you find your Gmail password in case you lose it. If you are using an Android phone, there will also be a recovery phone number associated.

Step 1: Go to your browser and search the Gmail sign-in page. Enter your email address and continue.

Step 5: At this point, if you enter the code correctly, you will be able to reset your password and gain access to your account. If you do not have Recovery Phone, you will be able to get a code sent to the Recovery Email (if you have access to it).

Method 5: Find Gmail Password via Google Support

If you use Google One services, you may be able to contact Google for password assistance. Free users of Gmail simply cannot contact Google for any form of account recovery assistance. Google One allows you to connect via chat, email, and phone. Free Gmail accounts are only allowed community help, which is not going to work in this case.


There are ways you can try to recover your Gmail password whether you are using a PC, a Mac, or an iOS or Android device. If everything has failed, and you are not able to recover your Gmail password, your only reprieve is setting up a fresh Gmail account. So that you are never in such a position again, consider using password managers such as 1Password, or at the very least, use Password Autofill features in web browsers. That way, you can use your computer password to find the Gmail password if you can’t remember it. In any case, using a password manager is recommended, as it can create a strong enough password that is hard to crack by hackers.
