If you know it already, good, but if you don’t, here’s the thing
Now you can also add your mobile number as one of the password recovery mechanisms for Gmail
So now there’s another option to retreive your Gmail password and what’s cool about this is that you don’t need to depend on your seconday email anymore . I think this should make life a simple in case someone looses their Gmail password.
Forgot your password ? Go to password assistance page and enter your username/email. Google will sms/text you a code on your mobile which you can use to get back on track.
Here’s a test for the new work flow
I just added my mobile number and went for the recovery option. Contrary to what Google says, I haven’t received any sms, though I did get an email on my alternate email account. So for now we can’t say it this option is working for India but in any case the new feature/change sounds good(and safe) and I think we all should go for it
