Find Google account creation date

If I ask a simple question about the service you use daily, I am sure you wouldn’t be able to answer it. Do you know when you created your Google account? This is really an interesting question and important as well. When we lost access to our Google account and no password recovery options help us, we need Google’s help. To recover our account, Google will ask a few security questions. These questions also include the question about your Google account creation date. If you know the exact date, the probability of getting your account back is high. So it is highly recommended to know and remember the Google account creation date. But how to get a Google account creation date? In this post, I am adding a few quick ways to get the Google Account creation date and know when you came to Google services.

Check Welcome Mail

When first we create a Gmail account, it sends 2 welcome messages. We can search for those emails and check the timestamp of those emails. But there may be a possibility that you have deleted those emails. I also did that. So you can follow other quick ways.

Check POP/IMAP settings

This is also a way to check the Gmail account creation date. Go to Settings in Gmail and then in Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab. Here you will find a line saying POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since dd/mm/yy. But this info may be wrong in case you have disabled the pop and thenĀ re-enabledĀ it. If you have never changed this setting, it will show the date of account creation. Otherwise, it will show the date when you last enabled the POP for this account.
