If you're suspecting that your Yahoo account was hacked, the best thing to do is to change your password.

However, most of the time, you would think that your e-mail account is hacked. But the truth is, it's NOT. Spammers are just using your e-mail address to send spam to other people, but they can not actually log in to your account using the password.

Using other peoples e-mail addresses can easily be done using Outlook or Eudora (E-mail Client).

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Firesnake

Hello there!
Unfortunately, if you cannot access anymore your email account, even if you tried to enter your username and password. You just have to open a new account, and this time make sure that you will be careful and please do not use any password that links with your username to avoid this happening again.

Be aware of hackers


I want to alert you all about hackers ready to hack email ids . Daily many email ids are hacked . Daily . In the same way , someone from New York hacked my Gmail account . Be aware of hackers .
To prevent hacking of your account , use the followig tips :

1. Insert your email id only in trusted website
This is to prevent hackers know your email id . It can be that the website in which you are entering your email id belongs to a hacker . If it is so , then your account password would be easily hacked . It is not that only Gmail account can be hacked . Anyone can very easily hack the password of any account , no matter it is a Gmail account or Yahoo or Hotmail or any other account . So it would be better and safe to enter your email id only on trusted websites .

2. Change your password at regular period of time
Changing the password can sometimes prevent your account from getting hacked . If a person anyhow gets your password and at that same time you can it , then the hacker would be unable to open your account . It can only happen only with some people .

3. Never neglect warnings and alerts
On Gmail , if a person with a different IP address logges in to your acount , then it shows a warning message on the empty space on the top . If any such warning message is shown , then instead of neglecting it , prform the following steps :
1. Click on the "Show info" link near the message .
2. Note down the IP address of the hacker and change the password or delete the account immediately . I reccommend you to delete the account .

4. Delete unneeded email account
If you have email accounts more than needed then delete those accounts . To see those steps , read my next tip on FixYa.com

If your account has been logged in by this IP address , then mail me to get information about it :
8.22.161.217

You can also get information about any IP address on Arin WHOIS Database Search website :

Hacked user account solution:


This is a problem that hapens to a lot of people, their email and social networking user accounts are geting hacked into, for the purpose of stealing a user's private information, or identity theft.

If you have experienced this problem before, follow the guidelines below to solve the problem.

The best solution would be to remove all your private information.
Delete it or forward it to another account. You can create a new account to transfer this info.

After you have done this, stop using the account.
If possible close the hacked account.

Preventing further attacks:

In the new account you have created and transferred your data from the old account, always change your password, or set a password with both lower and upper case, the password should also contain numbers.
For example "daNy47Q"

Most hackers use key loggers that monitor your key strokes to hack into user accounts, so when entering your password, do not enter the password in the order it appears. for example, if your password is "john" type jhon, then erase then type the password again in the right way "john".
This will confuse the hackers, and will keep access to your account safe.

How do I eliminate an administrater


Why would you want to do that? You would lose control of your pc. Best thing to do is keep an admin account in case you need to add software, or adjust anything, and create a user account to operate from. It's much easier to hack a computer if the user is operating from an admin account. If you're a user, you don't have admin privileges the hacker can use.

How do I unlock my yahoo account?


you must report to yahoo administration because they have some security to ask if you are the correct user who wants to open the said account. It is for hacker protection. You will answer all the your security question prepared before you apply your account before.

Someone is continually hacking into my account,reading all my emails,things I'm buying etc.How can I stop this?


One of the easiest ways to prevent people from hacking your accounts is to secure your account with a strong password. I highly recommend visiting www.strongpasswordgenerator.com to generate an extremely secure password for your account. Have different passwords for all your accounts and never use the same password twice. Also, be wary of suspicious websites and pages that you visit. Often times 'hackers' don't even have to 'hack' to obtain a password. They can just as easily setup a 'phishing' website which fools the user into thinking they're on a website they trust when in reality, they're entering their information directly on the hackers website.

I wat to see a friends profile without adding him


It's impossible to do it without knowing the email address. If you know his/her user name, then there's a chance, but most users locked their account info for strangers who are not in their friendlist. First try out with his/her user name on the facebook and see whether his/her infor is accessible or not. Even for hackers, without email and user name isn't possible to attack the particular account.
