    some one hacked my gmail account hoe to get it back

  • Ethical_Hacker

    There is a recovery form option wherein u have to key in ur details ... try to be as exact as possible. U will then hopefully receive an email from google asking to reset your password.

    -Hacking is Junk, not Hackers !!!!

      My gmail account was hacked and i have tried the recovery system, unfortunately that did not work either?? I have tried MULTIPLE times to get the system to send my recovery email the info required and never get any thing from google in junk or spam or regular mail for that matter.. Even worse there is NO tech support to assist so i am screwed at this point google has told me?? Way to go google.. At this point i hate tech and un-hackable systems that keep getting hacked and taken over?? Google can bite me as well.. Thanks for the help google..oh yea you didnt help me?? Imagine that?? SO BE WARNED TO AVOID ALL THINGS GOOGLE THEY WILL NOT ASSIST YOU, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN TO BECOME A TARGET FOR HACKERS WITH NO ONE TO HELP YOU WHEN YOU GET SCREWED

    10 days ago,my gmail id was hacked and someone has changed my email, password, phone number, and security question so that there is no way for me to get back on. When I go to enlist trusted friends, it says my account is not available, and I can’t do it.

  • Rob Hindle

    Once someone has got into the account they can wreak havoc. I've had the dubious pleasure of helping a couple of people recover hacked accounts. If you do get back in don't just reset all the password reminder stuff also go into Settings and check there are no filters set and no forwarding set. Also bottom right of your Gmail screen is a button to check details of recent account activity, go in there and click "sign out all other sessions".

    A small piece of good news is that Google does try to detect suspicious outbound mail and block it - they'd done that successfully for one of the hacked accounts I had to work on.

    The bottom line is, too late for you but anyone else reading, Gmail has some very good security controls if you choose to use them. If you don't use a secure password, if you do use public wifi or any potentially insecure computers and you don't use Google's two step security option you are taking a big risk. You've just discovered that, hopefuly you'll now be an evangilist for maximum security and will encourage friends and family to take it seriously.

      I agree with this man. It's all about prevention. It's always annoying and tedious to set/remember passwords but once you're penetrated, good luck on recovering.

      Do set the security settings and recovery options in the future. Good luck.

      what happen is already happen we tray to help the gay to get his account back, and hope still their is any chance to do so

  • Amit Sinha

    if your account was really hacked then the hacker must changed your all account recovery option. The only option is left for you to write an email to gmail support center regarding all your issues with new email address
