Having trouble getting into your Gmail Account – What to Do
Normally, getting into Gmail is easy and only takes a few steps: enter your email address, and password, and click “Enter.” However, as we’ve already said, sometimes getting into our accounts is hard because it doesn’t give us quick and easy access, below are some of the reasons.
You are entering from a new device 
When you sign in to your Gmail account from a computer or phone that isn’t your own, Google knows that you are using a different computer and will try to confirm that it is the real account owner. This means that before you sign in, Google will want to confirm or verify that the account belongs to you. How do they know this? Well, when you made your user account, you gave personal information that no one else can have, like security questions, an alternative email address, or a cell phone number. These details will help.
You changed your IP address 
Since the previous cause was a change in your usual computer, each Internet connection is based on an IP address, which acts as an ID card for each connection. If you switch from your usual IP address, you will be asked to confirm that you are the person who wants to log in. So your details will also be helpful here.
Several Tries to Figure out the Security Password Failed 
If you’ve forgotten your security password, it’s best to tell Google only once you’ve forgotten it. If you try to enter your password too many times, it could be harder to get into your account because Gmail’s algorithms might think that you’re trying to steal your account. Someone who tries to get into your account unsuccessfully about 5 to 10 times is considered a possible account hack attempt. Well, Google will punish you for this, and you’ll be asked to answer your security questions and maybe do something else to prove your identity, like enter your backup email address.
Tips to Help you Recover your Gmail Password
When you create a Google account, you won’t be asked to answer security questions. However, for the best experience, you should set up some so that if you have trouble logging in in the future, you can answer these questions and get into your account.
This is the second email you have set up. It doesn’t matter if it’s with Gmail or another email service; you’ll need to give it so you can get a verification code and get into your Gmail account.
This is the easiest way to access your Gmail account since all users always have their phones charged. Like the previous method, you will receive a text message with a verification code.
I believe all the tips above will help resolve any issue with Gmail, however, let’s answer some FAQs, learning from mistakes is a better experience
