Gmail’s password management system has been an open sore for many people, and it looks like Google has finally cracked it.
According to The Next Web, Google has changed the Gmail password recovery system in Google’s Gmail app, so you can now choose to either wipe your Gmail password or have it re-use for your Google account.
Gmail is an open source application that can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store, and allows users to manage and access their email and Google accounts from a web browser.
Google’s move means that if you’re looking to restore your Gmail account from the cloud, it will no longer be possible to do so.
Gone are the days of having to worry about password recovery and re-using it for your Gmail, and Google’s new system allows you to do just that.
According the Google Help documentation, “Gmail Password Recovery allows you recover your Gmail Password with a new login and password.
When you choose to use your password recovery option, you will not need to re-enter it, or re-submit your password.”
It also makes it easy to wipe your account completely and reestablish it from scratch.
Google previously offered a password recovery tool called Password Manager, which offered the option to save the password in a temporary location.
Users can restore a password from a password manager to a Google Drive or other storage service, or simply wipe a password and reassemble it again.
Users will also be able to choose a different password, and retype it into Gmail to regain access.
In case you’ve forgotten your Gmail address, you can re-type the password into Google Drive to restore access.
It’s also possible to reissue a password, which Google previously offered to reset your password, if the password you have on your account has been compromised.
Google also announced a new password recovery feature for Gmail users, as well.
According to the GoogleHelp documentation, the new password manager will be able “re-issue a new Google Gmail Password.”
Gmail password manager, which is similar to Password Manager from the previous Google app, has also been updated with a password reset feature, which can be used to reset a password to any account on the Gmail network.
Gmails new password reset functionality, however, does not apply to Gmail accounts with a Gmail user name.
Gift cards and credit cards will not be affected by the new Gmail password system.GPS, WiFi, cellular, and cellular data will not automatically reset a Gmail password when you log in to your Gmail from a device with a non-Gmail account.
Instead, the Gmail reset will prompt you to log in again, which will require you to type in the password again, and then re-issue it.
Google has also added a new setting to the Gmail settings to allow you to “Restore a Gmail Password from the Cloud.”
According to the Help documentation on the new Google account password reset, “You can choose to restore a Gmail account password or reissue your password from the Gmail app.”
This option will allow you “to restore a current password from your Google Account.”
Gmails iCloud, Gmail, Gmail mobile, Gmail for Business, and Gmail for Education will also get a new Gmail account reset feature.GMAIL is currently available for free on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux.
