We first recommend you to confirm if the mail you received regarding unauthorized access of your account is genuine or fake. To do this, you can use "Recent Login Activity" feature of Yahoo to check who all have signed in to your account. To use this feature, you can refer to the instructions on the following Yahoo page:
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/yahoo-account/login-activity-page-sln2073.html

You can also cross-check some more details to make sure that your account was hacked. To know what all details to check, you can refer to the following Yahoo page:
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/yahoo-account/account-hacked-sln2090.html

https://help.yahoo.com/kb/yahoo-account/account-information-sln3516.html

Logini have had my facebook account hacked and i need a new account a.s.a.p


An account on a social networking website such as Facebook can be a prime target for hackers. If you have lost access to your Facebook account because it has been hacked, your first priority is to regain access to the account before the hacker can send messages to your friends that could result in their accounts being compromised as well.

Facebook provides tools that you can use to recover a compromised account, based on whether or not your personal email account has been hacked as well.If You Can Access Your Email

1. Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.

Click the link after Step 1 on the page.

2. Click the link after Step 1 on the new page to begin the process of resetting your Facebook password.

Click in the box under "Enter Your Facebook Username," and type the name that you use when logging in to Facebook.

Alternatively, use the first box to enter the email address or phone number associated with your account.
Click the "Search" button.

A security check window appears.
Type the words that appear on the screen, and then click "Submit."

Click the "Reset Password" button.

Facebook sends an email to the address linked to your account.
The email address is displayed on the screen.

If the email address displayed is not your own, it means that the hacker who compromised your account changed the email address associated with it. If this is the case, follow the steps in the section "If You Cannot Access Your Email."

Check your email address for a message titled "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation."
Open the email and click the link contained within.

The Web browser navigates to the Facebook password reset page.

Type the password that you would like to use for your Facebook account, and then type it a second time to confirm that you entered it correctly.

Click "Change Password" to log in to the account.

If You Cannot Access Your Email

Type the phone number or username of your Facebook account, and then click "Search."
If you are unable to get a match, type your name plus the name of one of your Facebook friends.

This brings you to a Web form titled "My Account Has Been Compromised."

Fill in the information requested on the form, including your Facebook username, your name, any email addresses associated with the account, your own email address and a description of the problem.

I cant get too my facebook account


When you are blocked by someone on Facebook, there are few options to unblock yourself.
In fact, unless the person unblocks you on their own, you can't become unblocked on your own.
There is one thing that you can do, that requires setting up a new Facebook account.
You can use your same name, but you must sign up with a different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact the person who blocked you.
Keep in mind that the person may see your online attempts to contact her as harassment and may block your second account as well.

Go to facebook.com and fill in the "Sign Up" section.
Enter an alternative email address that isn't attached to an existing Facebook account in the "Your Email" and "Re-enter Email" fields.
Click the "Sign Up" button once.
Enter the Captcha security code in the text box and click the "Sign Up" button a second time.

Complete the Facebook account registration and find friends, add profile information and upload a profile picture.
These items are optional and you may add them at a later time.
Click the "Save & Continue" button to finish.
Go to your alternative email account and retrieve the Facebook confirmation message.
You will need to click a link in that email before your new Facebook account becomes active.
Once the account is active, you can contact the person who blocked your other account.

Help I think my Yahoo Account has been compromised or hacked!!


that happend to me. all you have to do is log on to your yahoo account and change your pass code . when you leave your yahoo account make sure you log out every time. if you stay logged in theres a much bigger chance of it being hacked again. your passcode should be made up of some numbers, mixed upper case and lower case letters. after i changed mine the problems stopped.

My password wont work on my account


It's possible your email account has been hacked but you will need to contact Yahoo! support services to find the problem. You might set up a 'throw-away' account to warn close friends and family not to open any emails from the Yahoo! account until you let them know it is safe. Hacked accounts are often used to send out viruses to everyone in your address/contact list.

My id has been hacked by some one,what do i do now?


If you can get in, change the password.  Check what's in your mailbox that the hacker could have seen.  If there's any passwords, tell them too.  If there's any banking details or any chance they could have got your CC number, change it immediately.  Send an email to everyone in your address book informing them you got hacked and to watch out for anything strange coming from you (it's embarrassing, I know; but better to man up and get it over with, rather than running the risk of someone gaming your friends pretending to be you...real problems can happen that way).

It's all about damage control.  Assume the hacker has copies of everything and has the worst possible intentions.  See what information is in your account that could be misused and act first to prevent it.

If you can't get in, click on the "Forgot your ID or password?" and select the "I think my account has been compromised" options and follow the steps from there.

Finally, consider moving to a new email service.  There seems to be a *LOT* of problems with Yahoo at the moment.  Just log in long enough to collect your data; sign up for a new service; and email your friends from there, informing them of the hack and your new email address.

Hope that's helped.
