How To Find The Gmail / Google Account Creation Date?

This is a common question asked by many peoples who are unable to get access into their Gmail account. This question asked by Google when you want to recover your Google account password. If you are no longer able to access your mobile phone or alternate email address then Google will ask you this question to recover your Gmail account.

How to find Google and Gmail account creation date

Google will also ask some more questions including this question like:

  1. Your last changed password that you used.
  2. Your last sign in activity date or time.
  3. Your Google account creation date.

So, if you are able to answer these questions perfectly Google will be sure that you are the real owner of the account and they will allow you to recover your Gmail / Google account.

Now the main problem is, we never store or memorize our Google account creation date and when it comes to recover stage we say Oh Crap! What is my Gmail account creation date?

So, it is quite important to store our Google account creation date in a safe place because it will helps us to recover our Google account if something goes wrong or even hacked.

If you try to search for how to find gmail account creation date without login then you will not get any perfect answer. Note that you have to store the Google / Gmail account creation date when you are able to access your account. And you can’t find out when someone's gmail account was created.

OK. Let’s begin.

There Are Two Ways To Find Out Google Account Creation Date.

1. From Gmail Welcome Mail

All Gmail account holders receive a “Welcome to Gmail” email from Google company just after created the email ID. The Welcome email date is the actual date of creation of your Google account creation date. Now, note this date in a safe place.

2. From POP / IMAP Settings

This option is for those peoples who deleted their “Welcome email from Gmail” and only works for the accounts that created after the year 2007.

1. Log in to your Gmail account.

2. Go to Settings.

3. Select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab.

4. Now find out for “Status: POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since mm/dd/yy

The mm/dd/yy is your Google account creation date.

Now, save it in a safe place.

How to find Gmail account creation date

Again, we never consider this date to store in safe place. Trust me you will feel its actual value when your account are non accessible. So, think now, not after.

Some Important Details About This:

● If you want to know when others gmail account was created then you will never get the date.

● There are no gmail account creation date finder or hacking tricks.

● Try to find gmail account creation date without password? Huh! Stay out of this. You are wasting your time buddy.

That's why I am suggesting you to memorize your Google / Gmail account creation date before its too late to lost your all Google services like YouTube, Blogger, Adsense, Drive, Calendar and what not.

That's all for today. If you have any question regarding this issue simply knock me at comment form below. Stay well and stay healthy. Allah Hafez.
