Gmail for mobile allows you to change your email for password recovery for a Google account. The procedure, present in the app for iPhone (iOS) and Android devices, ensures that this contact is updated, guaranteeing the possibility of recovering an account whose password has been forgotten by the user.
Check below the step by step to make the change. Before starting the configuration, make sure you use a valid email that is only accessible by you. In this way, your account will be protected from unauthorized access and you will only be able to change the access password.
