Is the tablet tied to a Google account?

Expert:  Joseph Newman replied 15 days ago.

I'm sorry you are having trouble recovering your Gmail account. There are only a few limited ways Google allows you to recover it. One way is with their password ***** You enter the information you have and it will send you a recovery code to your phone or email. That tool is in the link below.

If that fails the only other step is to fill out a recovery form and have Google support review it and then they will contact you back. This process does take 5 to 10 days. Here is the link to fill out the form.

If both of those options fail, then creating a new account is the only option. You can go here to create a new user name with a new password.

I hope these steps help clear up how to recover your account and what to do if the recovery fails. If you have any more comments about this question please let me know.
