If you’ve arrived at my blog and are asking yourself one of these questions:
- Do I need to know which accounts are linked to my Gmail?
- How do I know how many Gmail accounts I have associated with Google?
- Do I need to remember my Google accounts?
- What are my Gmail accounts created?
- How do I know how many Gmail accounts I have?
Then you’re in the right place.
If you are a Hotmail user and want to do the same but in your Hotmail account, then go to this article called: how to know which accounts are linked to my hotmail, where it is explained how to do it.
If you are a Facebook user and need to know the accounts associated with your phone number then you will be interested in reading this article: How to know how many FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS I have with my NUMBER.
It’s common for users to need or want to know which accounts are associated with their primary Gmail or mobile number and don’t know what the process is, or because it doesn’t show me all the accounts you thought were associated with. I’ll give you the steps to get them.
If you still don’t have your Google account linked to any mail or at least to your mobile number, or if they are not updated I invite you to associate/update them, with this you can save yourself future headaches.
Google Account Recovery Options.
First, I’d like you to learn a little about Gmail/Google recovery options. For Google/Gmail accounts you have the option to associate a mobile number or other email account of your own and use it as a password recovery method in case you need it.
It is important that you keep them up to date as they are designed to help you regain access to your account in case you forget your password or become a victim of account hijacking. You can’t imagine how many people who go through the Gmail Help Forum have lost access to their account and didn’t give these options the importance they deserve. Don’t be one of them :´).
How to know my Google accounts or Gmail addresses
If you need to know how many and which Google or Gmail accounts you have created, I’ll explain the steps to achieve it. E-mail addresses.
To do this you will use the recovery options you have placed on each of the email addresses you have: Recovery Email or associated mobile number.
You must take into account that to perform this procedure you must have physical access to the mobile phone. At that number you will be sent a text message with a code that you must enter to confirm the account and continue. The same for the recovery mail, you must be able to access it to check the code that will be sent to you.
First, you’ll need to log in to Gmail (https://mail.google.com/) and click Forgot your email? where you will be asked to enter your mobile number or if you prefer the email account you want to check.
Then, the page asked to enter the first and last name you registered on the account. In this step you must enter the first and last name as you registered it in those fields in each account or at least contain them.
I explain it better with an example:
I want to verify which of my accounts are associated with my mobile number, for this I enter in the form the information that Google asks me to verify it:
Cellphone number: 3013352525
First name: Carlos
Last name: Ardila
And then only the ones that say YES in the table will be shown:
It must show you something like this: Originals IDEAS to your EMAIL ADDRESS NAME
If we look closely, all five accounts are associated with the same mobile number, but not all will be shown as being associated with that number. Why?
Google validates the combination of the three fields it asks for: [Mobile number] & [First name] & [Last name] if any of the accounts is not fulfilled it will not be shown to you. That is, the table above will only show you two (the first and last) because in the field name and surname contain the words “Carlos” and “Ardila”.
Extra Note: If you exceed the maximum number of accounts allowed associated with the same mobile number, you can no longer use it to associate it with any other account, no matter if you delete one or more accounts already associated with it.
How do I know how many Gmail accounts I have?
At this point you might ask yourself how do I know how many e-mails I have? There is no way to know exactly how many emails I have in Google if you don’t know the data you put in when you created the account 🙁
What I do know is how many google accounts can you have? and the answer is how many you have in mind, they’re unlimited. Greetings.
