Thread: How to Recover a Hacked Gmail/AdSense Account in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Thumbs up How to Recover a Hacked Gmail/AdSense Account in 5 Easy Steps

    I won't talk much on this subject because I've received the baptism to talk less and act more. So I'll just go straight to the point. I can't guarantee you what will happen to your Gmail, AdSense or whatever your Gmail account is attached to in the next minutes. And if your account has been hacked before, then see how you can recover your hacked Gmail/AdSense or whatever account.

    This is what to do when your Gmail account has been hacked. Since the hacker may have already changed your password, security question & answer, recovery email address, mobile number associated with the account you canít recover your Gmail using the basic account recovery methods.

    You'll need the following information's
    If you are lucky enough, google will ask you some but not all of the below questions

    -->What was the last password that you remember (must have)?
    -->When was the last time (month, date, and year) you were able to sign in to your Gmail account (must have)?
    -->When did you (month and year) create your Gmail account (must have)?
    -->What was the answer to your security question?
    -->E-mail addresses of up to 5 frequently emailed contacts.
    -->Name of up to 4 labels.
    -->What was the first account recovery e-mail address that you remember?
    -->Name up to 4 other Google products that you were using with your Gmail account and also the approximate date (month and year) you started using them.

    -->Phone numbers that you may have associated with your Google account.

    -->Information about how you lost access to your Google/Gmail account.

    How Do I Know When my Gmail Account Was Created?
    ==>Login to your Gmail account>>Go to Gmail Settings --> Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
    In the POP Download section there will be 1. Status: POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since xx/xx/xx.

    Hereís What To Do When Your Gmail Account Is Hacked
    Step 1: Go to Google account login page and click on "Need help?" link.

    Step 2: It redirects you to the Google Account Recovery page. Select the "I donít know my password" option on that page and enter your Google/Gmail ID and click "Continue".

    Step 3: Now you may see a Captcha form, so fill it out and click "Continue". On the next page you can enter your last password that you remember and click "Continue" or simply choose the "I donít know" option.

    Step 4: Click on 'Verify your identity'

    Step 5: "Verify your identity" page takes you to an account verification process. So you have to verify your identity by answering multiple questions about your account.

    Google suggest you try your best in answering those questions accurately or nearly accurately.

    If the information that youíve provided matches with the information on the Google account then you will be able to reset the password. Otherwise Google will instantly notify you that the information youíve provided does not match the information on the account. But youíre allowed to submit the form once again with more accurate information.

    Once you've been sent the password recovery info, secure you account this time with a stronger password.

    Let me know if you are still having issues with your hacked Gmail/AdSense account.
