    When you say 'compromised' what signs are you seeing?
    Have messages been altered or deleted?
    Is someone using your email to retransmit spam?

I would advise changing your gmail password, but first, run a spyware/malware and virus scan. Running the scan first will verify that you do not have any keyloggers, trojan horses, or viruses on your computer. Then, once those are complete and your computer is deemed safe, change your gmail account password.

I would advise to run a security scan (try a couple of antivirus/antispyware programs), change your password and report it to google.

How do I reset password if I fear account is compromised


Ensure your password change took effect by logging into your gmail account using your new password.
Make sure in the address bar it says "HTTPS" before the address (Some browsers will show this in green)

If the login is successful this means your password was changed. To make sure go through the password change process again and pick a brand new password.

A better solution all together would be to enable 2-step verification. This allows you to use your cell phone to enter a code to make sure logins are from you and you alone.

The second email that was sent to you but blocked as spam was blocked automatically because other gmail users have already marked it as spam. So Google is probably aware of any issues and may ask users to change their passwords if the problem is serious.

I hope this helps you out.

Google com gmail login


You sign on with your I.D. and password, it doesn't matter which computer you use. Bear in mind that you may have those items saved on your computer so you sign on automatically, but with a different computer you won't have that shortcut available, so just use your identification that you chose when you set up the account, and the password that you chose. First, go to gmail.com
You will see a place to put your email address, which can substitute for your user name or it may be the only user name that you have chosen. If you can't remember the password, click on "I don't remember my password" and it will be sent to you in the manner that you chose when setting up the account. There is also a button for "I don't remember my user name" and that works the same way as the password button.

What is my googlemail account login?


Dear "Bill" William Patterson,

You are probably a nice guy, but you're incredibly naive. Never but NEVER publish email addresses to a permanent webpage, at least addresses you wish to continue using, as it will likely turn into a Spam City as soon as the robots harvest them, or worse!

That plus the Gmail information you have giving is just too damned risky. I believe you have compromised all three accounts with these revelations, and potentially opened yourself up to identity theft.

Just go open a NEW Gmail account. Maybe you'll get lucky and simply try to use the same name to sign up with as you used before. At that point you'll be able to recover it.

Help me to sine in gmail account


Go to gmail.com and enter your credentials (username and password there). If you're having trouble remembering your password, it should have a "forgot password" option to click on. I believe you have to enter your full email address for your username (i.e, username@gmail.com).

Cant remember my gmail user name or email address or password


my first question would be, do you have a facebook? because then you have an email, maybe one different from your gmail, and maybe your in your address book.
Or maybe you can ask an aquaintance whom you've emailed with what your adress is?
if you can find your gmail address, you'll be okay, because gmail has an option under the normal login for forgotten usernames and/ or passwords, but they require the email address I'm sorry:( if you don't use you old one, perhaps creating a new one might be the most beneficial?
