Some useful steps for verify Google account via using various methods
If you want to reset your account password, delete the account or trying to make any kind of sensitive change in your Google account or settings, performing Google account recovery, etc. you might have to verify your account. If you are needed to verify your account you will be able to see the following options to complete the verification:
Ø Code verification through SMS
Ø Password reset link through email
Ø Answering the security questions
You will get the verification method as per your account settings. I did not set up the security questions on my account due to which I found that Google can’t verify my account by answering the security question because that option is unavailable.
But there is nothing to worry if you are in this kind of situation, you can still verify your account using the recovery phone or the alternate email address registered with the Google account you are verifying.
If you are using the recovery phone number for verification, you will receive an SMS containing the verification code. Once you receive the SMS, you need to enter the code in the verification page and follow further instructions to complete the verification.
If in case you have not set up the security questions on your account and you don’t have access to your Google account recovery phone number, you need to use the alternate email address registered with the Google account for verification. You need to send an email containing the password reset link to your alternate email address. Once you receive the email, you need to open that and click on the password reset link to complete the verification.
