No 8-digit backup code

There is no recovery email and no same device.

  • If you haven’t saved the 8-digit backup code, that’s fine.
  • If you haven’t added recovery Email whiles creating a new email id, then no problem.
  • It doesn’t matter if you lost the device or reset your device.

So today we are going to do Gmail meaning Google account recover without 8-digit backup code, recovery email and without the same device.

How to recover the account?

Here are the different ways to try to recover your Gmail account.

We will try without a password as well.

When will this Gmail recovery method prove useful?

If your device is not with you i.e. lost or you have reset your device without recovering your Google account. So all Gmail data and all Google account data get deleted so when you enter the same Gmail on another device then ask ownership of the Gmail account because Google is top technology company and Gmail service provider by Google. Google never compromise on security so day-by-day bug fix and every app and Gmail keeps on strengthening security day by day. Without authentication, nobody logs into your Gmail account.

And if you turn on 2-Step Verification the additional security layer is added. So when you open a new Gmail account, don’t forget to turn on 2-Step Verification. Save the 8-digit backup code that helps you login to any new device after you’ve turned on 2-Step Verification.

When will this Gmail recovery method work?

This method only works if you have the phone number and remember the Gmail password.

Because if you don’t have 8-digit backup code and recovery email or the same device then you must remember your password and have a phone no.

Why phone number is needed to recover Gmail account?

Here the phone number has been used for the recovery Gmail account because it is from this phone number that you get the verification code. Yes, Google sends you the verification code by text message. With this verification code you will easily pass the first of the two steps. This step is very easy to pass because if the device is lost, you can get the same phone number as a new one. If you reset your device, the phone number will remain the same.

How to recover Gmail account using password?

If you have password then sometimes this method is very helpful because some option without password is hidden in a new device so if you remember Gmail password then your 2-step is complete because one step is password and other is your phone. First of all, we will see whether it works or not by recovering the Gmail account even without password.

After that, we will show using password.

That’s why both phone number and password play a big role in recovering Gmail account.
