If you don’t remember your current password:

Tips for creating a strong password:

  • Make sure the password is at least 8 characters long.
  • Don’t reuse the same password for multiple accounts.

Remember, it’s important to keep your Gmail password safe and secure. Never share your password with anyone, and consider using a password manager to help you generate and store strong passwords for all your accounts.
