How do i crack my password on my email

I hope you really do mean YOUR email. I would like to say that "cracking" / "hacking" someone else's email without their consent is highly illegal. This being said if you would like to crack YOUR own email then check out this site:

You must know that email's such as Hotmail, Gmail, Facebook, and Yahoo all have security in place to prevent such things from happening. If you do crack it and you are at another location (using IP address) the system will ask you to answer security questions. If you fail then it will lock you out and it will be reported. If it is your friends email for example, then they will be alerted and they will end up changing their password again, thereby, making it more secure. Hope this helps. Give me a feedback if it does not. Good luck. - Joe.

Tips to Find Unauthorized Activity on Your Email Account

Do you suspect that your email account is under attack? Do you want to maintain total security of your email account and make it 100% hack proof? Well, Some times our email account might have got hacked and we may not be aware of that. We may believe that our email account is safe, but in reality our private and confidential information may be falling into the hands of a third person.
Here are some signs of unauthorized activity on an email account.
1. Your new emails are marked as Read even if you’ve not read them.
2. Your emails are moved to Trash or even permanently deleted without your notice.
3. Your emails are being forwarded to a third party email address (check your settings->forwarding).
4. Your secondary email address is changed.
If you come across any of the above activities on your email account, then it is a clear indication that your email account is hacked.
Additional Security Features in Gmailto ensure the Safety of your Account
Gmail provides an additional security feature to protect your email account through the means of IP address logging. That is, Gmail records your IP addressevery time you login to your Gmail account. So, if a third party getsaccess to your account then even his/her IP is also recorded. To see alist of recordedIP address, scroll down to the bottom of your Gmail account and you’ll see something like this.


You can see from the above figure that Gmail shows the IP address of last login (last account activity). You can click on Details to see the IP address of your last 5 activities. If you find that the IP listed in the logs doesn’t belong to you, then you can suspect unauthorized activity.
Steps to be carried out to stop unauthorized activity on your email account
If you feel/suspect that your account is hacked then you must immediately take the actions mentioned below
1. Change your Password
2. Change your security question.
2. Remove any third party email address (if any) to which your account is set to forward emails.
3. Make sure that you can access the email account of your secondary email address.
4. Also change you secondary email password and security question.
This ensures that your account is safe from future attacks.

I think my email has been hack it want let me sign in I know I'm using the right pass word for years

try to log into the mail directly on the web page ..and not from outlook or so ...Another thing ...for example if you use yahoo ...they can have server issues ..and sometimes it is almost impossible to log in for a while ...wait 24 hours and try again ...This stands as a solution in case you typed the wrong password for a few times..and now it is locked as a prevention for 24 hours is standard procedure when you type a wrong password...
Also check not to have the cap-lock button pressed on ...cause in this case even the correct spelled passord will not work cause will be written in majors..
You can take in consideration a hack or a bad joke made by someone whom knew your password..and changed it ...for this will have to get to the domain page ..( mail ...or ...or ..or hotmail..etc..) and in there try to log in ...If the caplock is not on ...and the password is the correct one..but it still refuses to let you log..on ..take a look for the forgot ...and engage it for to start the recover or change password procedure..
Usually they will ask you a few questions that only you or the person that made the email account knows ...and after that will either provide you with a link where you can chage the password..or will direct you to the page where you can do that ..
For some is availale a secondary email attached on the account ..and if you have such a thing will be easier..cause soon as you report the forgoten password..they will send you a password changer link in the secondary email ..which you previously should have attached on the account ..
If the password is endeed changed..and you can not answer to the security questions..or you do not have a secondary email address linked to the account ..the password will be impossible to change ..and the account lost for to make another one ..and change the email address in any important location you used it ...(banck ...job related...and such ..)

My sbcglobel e-mail has been hacked and I was told to change my password, but I have had my password for so long on remember me that I have forgotten the password. How do I get in my password and how do I...

First thing here is to make sure you have actually been hacked. On of the more common things to see is a email saying that your account has been suspended or something like that and to re-enable it you just need to click on the link and reenter your password.So the first thing I would do is phone sbcglobal support and get them to confirm this is the case. IF it is they can reset your password and then all you need do is enter a new one. You will have to prove who you are either by providing billing information from a bill or responding to your own security question.

If you got a email saying your account was hacked suspended etc it is very unlikly it is genuine. It is what is called "phishing" (pronounced fishing). This is just a way for crooks to steal your logon information. If you get these NEVER click on the link. If the phishing email looks right (a lot are quite obviously bad) the link will take you to a page that will resemble your actual logon page. However this page might be anywhere in the world and its sole purpose is to gather information. So if you get these either type in the webpage link or phone support.

So you should call sbc support and have them reset your password and guide you through putting a new one in. It should only take a minute or so and then you will know you are secure again. For passwords think of something longer that 6 characters and preferably a mix of numbers and letters. Don't use anything associated with you. So don't use your street number or telephone number. What you can do is use information from someone else. Lets say your mom's phone number is 555-1111, you could make your password "mom5551111". That actually is a fairly secure password and you would have to tell someone it as it isn't something they could find out. The nice thing about something like this aside from it being almost impossible for someone to figure out is that you will easily remember something like that.

My hotmail acount got hacked

Not really, you might be able to get it back, but it's a lot easier to try and get a similar sounding gmail, acct. Someone has access to your machine, or account. I wouldn't take the chance that they get it again. just go for a ne one.

Someone has hacked into my sons msn and sent abusive msgs to his friends he cant get back in to his site who do i call for asssistance?

Somehow for whatever reason you've forgotten the password, the answer to your secret question and never set up, or no longer have access to the alternate email address associated with the account. Or your account has been hacked and your password, secret answer and alternate email address have all been changed.
I cannot help you.
Contact your email service provider and tell them what it happening. They should have some way of identifying you, after which they should be able to reset your password. This is typically the approach for pay services - they may verify your identity with your credit card number or some other piece of information they collected at the time you signed up.
Unfortunately, this almost never works for free accounts. Why? Because these accounts are free, there's almost no customer support. You get what you pay for.
Let me be even clearer about that:
You're using a free email service such as HotMail, Yahoo, and others
... and you forgot or lost your password
... and you forgot or lost the answer to your secret question
... and you did not set up an alternate email address, or you lost access to the alternate email address
... and customer service is not responding to you
You are out of luck.
I know of no way to recover your account. I cannot help you.
You absolutely can and should try contacting customer service for the email service you are using - they are the only ones who could help you. But my experience is that they rarely do.
Learn from your mistake.
If you lose access to your account and cannot recover it, you'll want to set up a new account. Learn from this.
Choose good passwords that you will remember. It's tough, given the number of accounts and passwords we all need to remember, but the fact is choosing a hard-to-guess password, and changing it regularly are important steps you can take to avoid someone stealing your account.
Don't share your password with anyone. A number of the account hacks I hear about are the result of trusting someone you shouldn't have.
Remember your secret answer. I'm kind of surprised I even have to say this, but when you create an account that asks you for a secret question and answer, don't treat it lightly. It doesn't have to be true ... just make sure it's something you'll remember in a year or two or ten when (not if) you have a problem.
Set up an alternate email address. This is where password reminders would get emailed to. And remember that if you lose access to your alternate email address, you need to change it in any accounts that reference it.
Don't use "remember me" when logging in. At least, don't use it unless you're positive it's safe. If someone else walks up to the computer (be it in an internet cafe, or in your bedroom or office) and "remember me" is selected ... they can now login as you without knowing your password. And then they can change your password and everything else, locking you out of your own account.
And, perhaps most important of all:
Don't use free email accounts for anything important.

one thing always remember never ever give your password to anyone, i feel that you are not able to login to your email account and it may be posiable that your email id is hacked by that person with whome you chat (tell him the old password or some other things).

its better to make some new username and password for your wife.

good day
