How to change the email verification to send the verification to cell phone?

I had this account for a while now and I haven't used it. I recently filled out a job application and I set it up with this email. I thought I remembered the password but I didn't. I tried to reset it but it keeps telling me to put in the alternative email but I don't remember putting in an alternative email. I have tried: I got to the reset and I don't remember the email. I think it was caused by: I haven't been on it in a while

I forgot my password for Android at the time I used a friend's phone number and email and I no longer have access to these?

I no longer have access to the email or phone number, what can I do?

The only thing you can do is a hard reset. You will then have to bypass the Google Verification to set up the phone after the hard reset. There are a number of ways as each manufacturer is bypassed differently. If you can't find your device or manufacturer on YouTube when you search bypass Google FRP then you will have to install new firmware on the device.

My wife's mother died and she wants to read her AOL email?

We have her username but not her password.

If this was her mother, she can probably answer the security question. If not, she could contact AOL but they may not help her since security is essential with email passwords. You could request that you be allowed to send the death certificate for confirmation though and identification or proof that your wife is her closest relative.

I forgot my password and no longer have the recovery phone number?

I forgot my password for AOL and Yahoo. I know my old phone number, but I have a new phone number so I can not access my account. I know my username and my full name. However, I forgot my password to AOL email and recovery Yahoo email. I know my old cell number associated with the accounts but no longer have that phone number. I really need to get into my account. Is there a way to get into it through the hard drive? I was able to see other passwords but none showed up for Yahoo or AOL. Thanks for your help. I have tried: All my old passwords. Was able to locate all passwords kept on this computer except for my email passwords, which did not show up. I no longer have the phone number associated with AOL and recovery Yahoo account. I do know the old cell number though. I think it was caused by: I did not write down my passwords and switched to a new cell number before I could receive a account key
