Note: This article is not meant for those who have lost their password. I am writing this article for those who have access to their account, but don’t know how to check Gmail account creation date. In future, if by some means, you lose your password and want to use Gmail accounts Form, this Gmail account creation date will help you.
Get Gmail account creation Date:
1. Gmail Welcome Mail:
All Gmail accounts receive “Gmail Welcome Mail” after they create their Gmail account. So, this “Welcome Mail” has the same date as your Gmail account creation date. So, noting this date will serve the purpose. Go to Gmail inbox and hit on Oldest button to get the last message. This message will be from Gmail Team. Note this mail’s date. Done!!!
But, many readers said that they have deleted Welcome mail and so are unable to get the account creation date. If you are one of them, proceed to the second point.
2. Using POP:
Well, this method will work for accounts created after 2007.
Go to Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP and under POP Download, look for:
and you will get the required date.
