How To Recover Your Email Account Password: Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo etc.

If you have forgotten your e-mail account password then do not worry, it is very common. Generally you may have to use the Email Client app on your smartphone and tablet device to access your emails, and those client applications did not require a password every time, that’s why our habit has changed and when we come to login with a new device we always forget the password.

If you have set up a phone number or recovery email address with your email account, then resetting your account password is easy, otherwise the email service provider will ask you some security questions related to your account. If you answer all the questions that are correct, then your account may recover.

The following is the password recovery link of the popular e-mail service providers that you can use to recover / reset your account password:

General questions

My email account is protected with two-step verification and can not recover my account?

Two-step authentication with an email account prevents anonymous login, even some email service providers disable certain options for password reset, when this protection is enabled. If you have access to a recovery phone number or email address, the account can be easily corrected, otherwise contact the support team of the email service you are using.
