Embodiments are directed towards providing an aging of account data points usable in recovering access to an account. The aging functionality of account data points is configured to enable users who may have had access to their account compromised or otherwise denied, still be able to recover access. Account data points are time stamped when associated with an account. When a request is received to delete the account data point, the account data point is instead placed into an aging status for a time period. During the aging status time period, the account data point may still be used to recover access to the account. Moreover, after access is recovered using a certain account data point, any account data points created after the certain account data point may be deleted to minimize unauthorized access to the account.
