That question should strike fear into your heart. I know it does mine. That’s why I freaked when I read this article about one tech writer unable to access his account.
The worst part of his story? He had no idea how he got locked out or how he got back in. It all started with a forgotten password. Once he tried to reset it, he was locked out for over a week.
Of course, a password manager would have helped him. We recommend 1Password. If your Google account is critical, there are some safety measure that can be added so you can get back in once you’re locked out.
We do this all the time for clients, so if you rely on Google and Gmail, give us a call, send us a text, or write us an email. Most appointments are less than an hour. The safety and security is worth its weight in gold according to our clients.
