          Hi Sahil,

          If your 2-step verification is on then whenever you are trying to log in into gmail account from new device or new browser then automatically gmail sends message on your registered mobile number which contain verification code. Using the code you can login to your gmail account.

          And you are done
          Hope this will help. Feel free to revert back.
          Thanks for coming by and asking for help.
          Have a great day ahead! 🙂

      Hi Boris,

      This backup code you can use when your gmail has 2 step verification on, but you don’t have your mobile to receive the 2 step verification code which is send on register mobile number for verification.

      In case if you have lost your mobile then you can use this code to login in your gmail account using step mention in above article. You don’t need to use this code for every login, instead use this when you don’t have mobile phone with you to receive verification code.

      Hope this will help. Thanks for coming by and asking for help.

      Have a great day ahead! 🙂

      Hi Mho,

      As you said you have your recovery mail with you, you can login to your main account then add new phone number. Once new number is added delete the old number. Hence forth you can use your new number to access gmail account.

      And the previous code which was there in your back cover for that you can generate new code and use it.

      Thanks for coming up with your query. Hope this will help.

      Have a great day ahead! 🙂

      Hi Ratna,

      If you know your email id and password and still not able to login as you mention that you are not able to receive verification code on your mobile.

      Alternatively you can use other option for verification like using 8 digit backup code which I have already mentioned in above post how to create backup code. Incase you dont have backup code then you can ask for google assistance to get access to sign in ( this may take 3-5 bussiness day for your account security reason).

      I would recommend you to generate your backup code using step mention in above article and keep it with you to get access to your gmail account without any trouble.

      Thanks for coming by and asking for help.

      Have a great day ahead! 🙂

      1. You say in an article that if you have lost phone or don’t have it with you to go to this recovery page and get security code?
        But to get to this page in your words a paragraph or so later your instructions require us to sign in to your Google account?
        That is the problem, if I could get signed in ?
        I created a AOL email as a hopeful failsafe where I was sent verification 3 times, entered them and all 3 times was told I could still not be verification so I could not get into My Account?
        After hours of answering everything they could throw, I am beat down and sick. I have been a victim of Google more than once. They should be in litigation over this but I’m 62 and would die before their disgusting victory. Money vs None, A 100,000 and a dedicated line and I’ll be at peace all the way to the morg.

          Hi Greg,

          To use backup code you need to generated these backup code when you were able to login in your gmail account and activate 2 step verification.

          But here in you case you are trying to verify your account using alternate email id. If you have access to that alternate email id then you can get link to reset your password using forget password option which you can see while trying to sign in in your gmail account.

          Just click on forget password and go for option to get password reset options. If you are still not able to logged in then you may ask google assistance to get access to sign in ( this may take 3-5 bussiness day for your account security reason).

          Hope this may help.

          Thanks for coming by and asking for help.

          Have a great day ahead! 🙂

      Hi Ashwani,

      Even though you lost your 2 step verification no. You can still login to your account. You just to recall some previous activity perform in your gmail account.

      While you trying to login there is open forget a password. Just click on that and go for ‘Try different question’. While checking different question, you will have to answer those question and if you answer correctly then you will be able to access your account again.

      Thanks for coming by asking for help.
      Have a great day ahead! 🙂

  10. i lost my phone and need to sign in my gmail account i remember the password but must have verificated . i was follow your instructions but doesnt work .help me please thataccount very important to me

  11. this appears to work only if someone has setup the verification process in the past. The problem is I don’t want to have to sign in with two step verification. I should be able to access my account anywhere in the world, as long as I know my user name and password. let’s just say for the sake of argument, I’ve never set up the verification process. So, how can I sign into my gmail account on a computer that gmail doesn’t recognize as my own without being prompted to enter a code sent via phone?

    1. after reviewing my own post, let me clarify. I’m willing to answer all sorts of security questions in order to verify myself, but I don’t want to have to provide a phone number, in which gmail would use it to send a code that I would have to enter.

        Hi JD,

        If you have not setup 2-step verification then you can directly log in to your Gmail account from anywhere and from any computer.
        This 2step verification is just for security purpose. If you want to use it then its good otherwise just don’t care.

        Hope this help.

        Thanks for coming by.

  12. Hi. I have a huge problem with 2 step verification. I factory reset my phone on project fi and can’t activate it again due to 2 step verification and not being able to get the text message due to no cell service. I did not forget my google acct password. I logged in on my chromebook and tried to shut off 2 step auth but it then prompts me again to receive a code I can’t receive. I don’t know what to do. I have had a Google account for 15 years and have everything stored in it. I have access to this account on my chromebook but I need to also use this account on my project fi phone like I always have. How can I remove 2 step auth from my acct so I can activate my phone after a factory reset? Also, I tried getting a reset password (even though I didn’t forget my password) sent to my backup email but it sent the code and still doesn’t let me reset my acct to change 2 step auth. Please help…google support and project fi support have been no help at all

      Hi Justin,

      Sorry to hear that Google team are not helping. They have a process to verify your account via different methods.
      You can try using different methods present on login page like forget a password, recover password using backup email id etc.

      If you don’t have your mobile number active, I would recommend getting same number from your operator. The operator will help you to get the same number. This would be a better option instead of relying on Google team.

      Thanks for coming by.
      Have a great day ahead! 🙂
