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

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

Click the link after Step 2 on the page.

Click the first link on the new page if your email account has been hacked and you no longer have access to it, or click the second link if you followed the steps in the section.
"If You Can Access Your Email" and the email address displayed was not your own.

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.

Type the words displayed in the security check box, and then click "Submit."
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.

Click "Submit."
This sends a message to Facebook notifying its support staff that your account has been compromised.

Before unlocking your account, a member of the Facebook staff will contact you to confirm your identity.

I am look to unlock my gmail password but keeps on declining


Gmail, Google's email service, provides you with a free, online email address.
Your Gmail account is vulnerable to hackers if you don't take adequate steps to protect it.

Create a strong password that contains a mix of numbers and letters.
Use both upper and lowercase, and consider adding symbols.

Change your account's settings from HTTP to HTTPS.
Even if you take the necessary precautions, someone may still hack your account.

By checking various Gmail settings, you can determine if someone has hacked your account.
Sign in to your Gmail account.

If your password doesn't work, someone has compromised your account.
If your login works, scroll to the bottom of the Gmail screen until you find the Last Account Activity line.

Click "Details."
This opens a new window with all your recent account activity.

Check the Location box for any activity outside your area or from a strange IP address.
This is a sign that someone hacked your Gmail.

Click "Sent Mail" and look for any strange messages sent from your address.
If you find messages there that you didn't send, someone may have hacked your account.

Click the gear-shaped button on the top right side of the Gmail screen.
Choose "Mail Settings" from the drop-down list.

Check the Signature box to make sure no one changed it.
Hackers sometimes place links to malicious websites in this area.

If you send an email to someone and he unknowingly clicks one of these links, it can infect his computer.

Check the Vacation Responder section for a similar reason. Make sure no one has changed it or placed outgoing links.

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab at the top of the Settings page.
Click "Change Password Recovery Options" in the Change Account Settings section.

Enter your password if Gmail prompts you.
Check the Email section to make sure there are no strange addresses listed as a recovery email address.

If a hacker places one of his email addresses in this section, he can recover your password even after you've changed it.

While on this page, check your security questions to make sure no one changed them.
Close the "Recovering Your Password" page and return to your Gmail Settings page.

Check the "Grant Access to Your Account" section.
Unless you've added an account here, it should be empty.

If someone hacked your Gmail, you may find that he has added himself to your account in this section.
This means he can read your email and send messages from your address.

Click the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab.
Check the Forwarding section to make sure no one changed it.

Check the POP Download section and the IMAP Access section.
Unless you enabled them in the past, POP and IMAP should be disabled.

Hackers use these options to gain access to your messages.
Click "Save Changes" if you altered any settings.

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.

I have some hack or virus that is sending emails from my yahoo account to my contacts with a link to a canadian company selling viagra and cialis, etc.. I want to stop this from happening...


Recently spam hackers have been hijacking Email accounts to use for their own dirty deeds and scams. The best thing to do is to deactivate your Yahoo account and make a new one.

Click here to go to the Yahoo compromisation web site and follow the instructions to disable your account.

The reason deleting the account is because these spam hackers are sending unwanted advertising to all your contacts claiming to be you. As far as you know they might even be sending emails to all your contacts asking for money.
There was a recent scam where spam hackers hijacked this lady's account and sent a message to all her contacts that she was stuck in Namibia and needed money to be sent to a specified account to get home.

To stop it, delete your email account, or if you are able to regain access, change your password to something a little more complex and define for yourself a few security questions only you would know. Another thing is just to contact all the people you had in your contacts and tell them that you account has been compromised and that they must ignore any emails received from it.

Had you ever assigned a special question to your account that only you will know the answer?
It is clear to me that you have probebly use the same password for both your Facebook account and your Email.

You can go here and declare your account compromised. It will ask you for your Yahoo ID and to copy the provided code into the block provided.

Sometimes Yahoo mail servers are comprimised by spam hackers for spam use so don't go accusing you ex's mother just yet.

It would be a good idea to open a new account and tell all the people who you had in your contacts that your Yahoo account has been compromised.
There was a recent scam where hackers were hijacking accounts and sending mails to all your contacts claiming to be you and telling them to deposit large sums of money into a certain account as you are stranded in Nigeria.

With this in mind:
1) Declare your account compromised here.
2) Delete your old account.
3) Create a new account.
4) Assign security questions that ONLY you would know the answers to. (This is a major way in preventing this from happening again)
5) Send emails to all of your contacts that you had in your old account telling them of the compromisation and to ignore ALL emails from your old account.

Your rating for this solution is highly appreciated.
Thanks.
