gmail security is a joke

Perhaps this is still a void in the market? A business which operates small officers at which you can real-world verify your personal being using the most solid evidence available (perhaps in cooperation with governments) for that location/country which works together with the sorts of big- at random-webservice to help recover information?

That would remove the need for weak idea's. Either you setup and use a very solid recovery method or you present yourself (or perhaps a family member in case of (emergency/deceased/etc')). 

With kind regards,

Can you not set account recory options which change the way password
reset requests are handled. Gives some guidance?
