What happens if your Gmail account has been hacked?

In some of the cases, the hackers become successful and are able to hack the Gmail accounts. This information can then be exploited to fulfill the malicious intent of the hackers. Here are some of the problems that you may face when your Gmail account is hacked:

Can’t login to the Gmail account:

Hackers normally change the password of the Gmail account they hack. As you try to login to your account, you will be notified that your password is wrong. To fix such problems, you need to recover Gmail account by resetting your password. You can reset the password using recovery phone number method or alternative Email address method. It is also advised that you enable 2-factor authentication for your account.

Changed Gmail settings:

Sometime instead of password, just Gmail internal settings are changed. They may change forwarding Email address, recovery Email, recovery phone number, filters, etc. of your Gmail account. Some other problems like can’t receive emails, can’t send emails, email redirection, can’t upload attachments, etc. may arise due to the changes in settings.

In such cases, change the settings as required. Finding the correct settings of the account can turn out to be a problem. If you cannot find the elements causing the problem, you can call on Gmail helpline number and get the problem fixed by the experts. This ensures that you no longer have to go to every setting. It is also advised that you change your password soon after changing the settings.

Spam messages sent to contacts:

In some of the Gmail attack cases, your contacts receive spam messages from your Email address. These contain phishing links or links to other malicious websites that can install programs and software to steal your data. This data can be used to exploit the users in various ways.

If you find out that your contacts receive spam from your Email, delete the sent messages and change the Gmail password and password recovery information.
