How To Stop Someone Else From Using My Gmail Account?

An email account being hacked is quite a common security occurrence today. Most of the time, we may not even be aware that our account had been compromised. To check if your account has been targeted and hacked into without your knowledge, you need to log into your Gmail account using a desktop browser. Scroll down to the bottom of your inbox and locate a link called “Details”. When you click on it, a pop-up window will appear, and it will show you a detailed list of the last ten times you – or anyone else –has accessed your account. It will also show you not just when your account was accessed, but also how it was viewed. You’ll know if the inbox was opened using an email app, browser, smartphone app and the IP address through which it was accessed. If you see a suspicious device or IP address, you may want to change your password as soon as possible. To strengthen the security on your Gmail account, you can even turn the two-factor authentication system on. You can store your IP addresses of the various computers and devices you use to access Gmail, in order to ensure nothing fishy is going on around your account. More detail precautions are listed in the links below.
