I am not sure because I didnt understand about recovery email.

Let me know whenever it comes up again, and select the option to skip / don't remind, etc., and/or let me know the options there. Thank you.

It seems to have come up after the contacted me and said I hadnt logged out.

Who contacted you?

Was there any issue with your email or computer earlier?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I think it was google that contacted mee.

Did they contact you by sending you an email message, or by calling you, etc.?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
They sent me an email-can you tell me what a recovery email is?

A recovery email is another working email address, if you have, you can put on your gmail account in case you forget your gmail email account password. Or you can also use an email address for the recovery email from a trusted person, like a family member.

You can also use a recovery phone number.

But I recommend to always ignore any email message or phone call that you do not know or that you are not expecting. Please be careful as there are fake emails and fake phone calls out there that ask for your personal information.

Ask Your Own Email Question

As long as your email is working, then you don't have to do anything. But if you'd like to put recovery email and/or recovery phone on your gmail email account, then please click on the website below:

https://accounts.google.com

, there, sign in your gmail email address if prompted

, then click on the option Sign-in & security

, then scroll down to the section Account recovery options.

Thank you.
