Gmail has instructed to change your password often for the security reasons and you did it but now you forgot it or confused either, Gmail knows it but it is legally bound to no to tell you.
Yet pass word can be recovered through some simple steps. All you need is some a validation or verification process. If you need to reset your password in case you forgot, then you at least need a secondary email address that was used for your Gmail account or just go to the section Can’t access you’re a account? And access the link from the Gmail log-in page. Then chose the option I forgot my password, and then type your exact Gmail address in the specified Email address box and just click Continue.
But now there are 3 options to recover your forgotten password, they are 1. If you have set up a secondary email address for recovery, 2. If you have set up a security question for Gmail password recovery and 3. you have set up phone number for account recovery:
What if you have set up a secondary email address for recovery?
Chose the email address and request password reset link under my recovery email and Click Continue to open the Google password assistance message and just follow the Gmail instructions.
What If you have set up a security question for Gmail password recovery?
Chose a question in the drop down box and make sure you answer right as you mentioned while opening the account, automatically you can retrieve your password.

All you need is get a verification code (via SMS) on my phone and Choose how to go back into your account and click continue. Enter the verification code that will lead to set a new password and re-enter the same again, that`s finished.
