Cancelled phones and Google Account Access

I’ve cancelled my son’s phone. And he won’t be using his email for a while. As I understand it, the google account is linked to the phone number.

If someone else is assigned his phone number, can that new person access my son’s email/google account?

Remove phone number from two-step voice or text message verification

  1. Open your son’s Google Account. You might need to sign in.
  2. Under “Security,” select Signing in to Google.
  3. Choose 2-Step Verification.
  4. Under “Voice or text message” select the edit pencil and REMOVE PHONE.

Thank you, CB. I’ll do it.
