How to Recover old Google Account?

Nowadays, we all have Google accounts full of personal data, be it our emails, contacts, appointments or text messages. So when we lose access to our Google account, it has the potential to be a shocking disaster in the making. But there's no need to have a nervous breakdown just yet. You can take several recovery steps to Recover old Google Account  and regain control of your data.

Whether or not you can recover a deleted Google account depends on how long ago it was deleted. Basically, the sooner the better. Google doesn't say what the cutoff point is, but some non-Google sites suggest it could be 60-90 days.

The first recovery step is to simply log in and see if it lets you into your account. Obviously, you'll need to enter your username and password and perhaps answer a recovery question or two. You may be lucky.

If the account was deleted too long ago and therefore you cannot log in as usual, you will need the Google account recovery link. You will be prompted for the account name and the last password you remember for the account. Google will then let you know if the account can be restored.

But if too much time has passed since the account was deleted, you may be out of luck. So the only option is to cut your losses and start a new Google account.

How to recover a Google account if your account was hacked
If your Google account was hacked, then time is of the essence. The faster you react, the better.

If someone signs in to your account from an unrecognized device or an unrecognized IP address, Google immediately flags them and sends them an email to let them know. If you don't recognize the login, you should go to the security section of your Google account and change your password immediately.
