How to know if someone has hacked Gmail account and how to recover
  

How to know if someone has hacked your Gmail account? Hack of your account of Gmail is one of the worst things that can take place, particularly for the reason that given the amount of services that Google offers, get someone else's password Gmail means you have access not only to our mail, but potentially to our location (if using Latitude), to our profile and other portals (if using Profiles), and even our credit card (if using Checkout). Moreover, when you access your Gmail account and do nothing, the person with access to our account may, for example, access to passwords and critical data by simply asking for a "password reset", for example, other sites web. Can anyone give me brief info about this? Thank you in advance.

Re: How to know if someone has hacked Gmail account and how to recover

The quickest way to know if someone else who has access to your Gmail account, you go towards the end of the page. Here you will find at the bottom, information on the activity of our own. Click on "details”. This may give you a quick look at what devices and computers have access to your Gmail account recently. The data will get the date and time, mode of access (Browser, Mobile, IMAP, etc.), and the country as well as Internet Protocol address. If you find that someone else is using your account the first thing I want to do is change your password immediately for a safer and completely different from today. Additionally, be sure to close all other sessions, which will make the rest of computers that have connected to disconnect account.

Re: How to know if someone has hacked Gmail account and how to recover

Filters are a dominant tool to have more order in Gmail (as seen in Gmail Sorting with filters and tags ) however if somebody already had access our Gmail account, the first thing that we need to review are the filters.Because it is possible to generate a filter, for example, re-send all mail to another account (the person who had access to our mail), so that he can review with patience when you want. Here do not even need to have access to your account for the reason that each time we get an e-mail, it would be re-sent to the account of this other person.

If someone has access to your Gmail account, it is possible that the password you had was insecure. Be sure to make use of different characters and numbers at what time generating a password. Make sure that the new password you is generating is strong enough to so that hacker cannot next time hack you password. And never make use of similar password for different accounts.
