I'm pretty sure someone is getting my internet connected Gmail account notification, how can I see for sure?
Help me get my Gmail account off of someone's phone
You can see by following step 1 in the instructions I have created below. As for rectifying the situation the simple answer is to change your password, however you must also secure your backup email and phone numbers. Other devices that are logging in via cookies right now will need to login. However you should consider how this person got access in the first place. Do they have access to your backup email address that you give when you sign up for a Gmail account? You should also change the password to this account too. The other way they could have got access is if your account is associated with a cell phone number (which is now required to sign up for Gmail). I recommend you take these actions:
- 1Check your access log of who has been accessing your account and from what computer and where is that computer located.Menu Icon (9 squares arranged into a square) > My Account > Device activity & notifications
- 2Correct your recovery phone number and email address if needed.Go into your Gmail account security settings and change your associated cell phone number. You will need to enter a code sent to you by SMS to prove you have access to this phone number. Menu Icon (9 squares arranged into a square) > My Account > Security Checkup
- 3Change your Google / Gmail password.Menu Icon (9 squares arranged into a square) > My Account > Sign-in & Security > Signing into Google
- 4Change the password to your recovery email address.Otherwise if the person got in that way they can simply pretend they are you and perform a "forgot password" on your account.
Some has recently hacked into my Xbox live account?
He found out my IP address, and I'm afraid that he's watching me.. I have tried: taping my phone camera.. I think it was caused by: he hacked my account.
Usually, knowing one's IP address does little to your or the person who knows it. If the IP video camera is on your computer, then there may be a "videofeed and settings" Web page for your Web camera with a user name and password, which you can change. You can also unplug it and scan your system for malware with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and antivirus as your computer may be compromised with a backdoor virus.
If the camera is on your smartphone and you do not remember anyone taking your unlocked smartphone for 5-10 minutes, then you are safe from civilian surveillance. Installing spy programs requires your smartphone being in one's hands and, for the camera access, its being rooted or jailbroken (Windows Phone smartphones do not have spy applications, so you are safe with those). If you do remember someone taking your iPhone, Android, Symbian, or Blackberry or you notice excessive bills for your smartphone and its sudden fast discharging, then report it to the police. If you just want to get rid of possible spy programs, then just hard-reset your smartphone. Search our Web site for your specific smartphone or tablet model to see how you can hard-reset it.
