How to Change Gmail Password​

Given the amount of passwords, usernames and PINs that every Internet consumer has to remember these days, it’s hardly shocking that people forget about their login information. However, for security purposes, it is not advisable to use the same password for all your accounts. Indeed, you should update your passwords on a regular basis to make sure they stay safe. This is the only way to protect your accounts from hacking attacks. This guide explains what to do if you want to change your Gmail password to make your account more stable, or if you need to reset your Gmail password because you have forgotten it.

  1. But you just found out that your Gmail password doesn’t fit. In the moment of confusion that follows, you’re still wondering if you were compromised, or if you really don’t know what the password was.
  2. The good news is, you probably haven’t been hacked — Google sends out alerts and reminders anytime anyone signs up on a new computer or changes your password, so unless you’ve been logged out for a while, that’s impossible.
  3. Even, it’s a pain not to be able to reach your email, and you definitely want to fix this as soon as possible. Luckily, it’s very easy to reset your Gmail password from your device or phone as long as you set up some recovery mechanism at the beginning — an email backup or phone number.

What’s a good password for?

  1. Your sensitive data should be protected against unauthorised access by a password. Simple combinations are no hindrance to professional hackers, and there are programmes that can crack simple passwords in seconds. One of the most widely used methods is the attack on the dictionary.
  2. Hacking programmes that use this approach quickly cycle through meaningful character combinations until they hit the correct password.

Tip:

  1. At least eight randomly combined letters and special characters should be included in the safe password. You may use a digital password manager to get around the issue of losing your passwords. These tools allow you to store and manage your passwords and security codes in an encrypted format.
  2. We can quickly change your Gmail address. Facebook , Twitter, and other similar accounts will not be affected.
  3. Anyway, we can’t use our old password to log in once it’s updated.

You can receive an email notification​

  1. If you have set up a retrieval phone number with this account or another account attached to it, Gmail will give you the option to send a text or call to that number containing the code you can use to confirm your identity.
  2. If you have your phone with you, pick your preferred mode of communication, then skip to step six. 
  3. If you don’t have your phone with you, or would prefer Gmail not to contact you in this way, press “I don’t have my phone” at the bottom and proceed to phase 1.
  4. If you have another email associated with this one as a recovery email, Google will give you the option to send a recovery code to that email. If that method is satisfactory to you, click “Submit” and proceed to step 2.
  5. Confirm your recovery email and press “Send” to send the code.
  6. If you don’t have access to a recovery email account for any reason, you’ll need to click “Try another way,” in which Gmail will ask for an email address to which you have access. They will take time to analyse the issue on an individual basis and decide whether they can help you recover the account. There is no guarantee, however, that you will be able to recover your account this way.
  7. Enter the code that has been sent to your phone or e-mail address for recovery.
  8. Gmail will now ask you to choose a new password. Try to pick something that you won’t forget quickly, or else write it down safely, so that you can look at it next time and avoid this difficulty.
