Its a common issue now a days. You have done the basic preliminary step. Other than this you can:

Delete Cookies of your browser

Delete all Temporary files of your browser

Install Malware Bytes and scan the computer for malwares

Upgrade the browser as well and make sure your account password complexity is Strong.

Hi,
Password change should secure your account, however depending on the method they originally obtained it it may be related to spyware or similar.
I'd suggest running a spyware/virus check on the computer you check your email on.
Malware Bytes is free and i have found to be very useful.

SuperAntispyware is another option:

Hope this helps.

I have been hacked on my viber account and would like to know how this can be as my fone is locked my contacts and messages are also on a lock password


It uses the internet and therefore your cyber space is easy to get into. It may not be your phone etc but the actual space that has been "hacked".
Some years ago a friend had her Yahoo account "hacked" and "stolen". I had to contact yahoo in the US and we had to go thru the hacking together. This hack had been used to set up paypal and EBAY accounts. Pay pal were not interested, yet there had been over £4000 worth of theiving (as the correct word cannot be used on here) carried out using her email address.

I am not getting all my emails


If someone hacked your account, he / she is the boss. You can't login to your account.
If you still can login, you should change all settings, like password, return address if the password has to be reseted. Then setup a more complex password.
If you can receive mails on one device and not on another, you should check the settings on the device not capable of receiving mails. It has nothing to do with hack, just with manning your accounts.

Hack account


Twitter is an online social networking site where friends have the option of staying in touch via mobile phones.

When a user sends in a mobile text, Twitter sends the message out to friends and posts the text on your personal Twitter web page using a short code.

Computer savvy Twitter users tweak the programming allowing others to use hacks for specialized features in Twitter.

Share photos and video through Twitter with the Twixxer hack where users upload images and receive a short URL, which links to a large version of the photo.

Friends with the Twixxer hack are able to see a thumbnail before going to the larger image.

Exchange files with friends in the Mac-based Twitter hack, Twittershare.
Send HTML files with embedded video and stop using archaic FTP.

Monitor traffic patterns with the useful Commuter Feed Twitter hack.
This social hack lets commuters share information on local traffic conditions by contacting a bot with message updates.

Show your Twitter updates (tweets) on your Wordpress blog with a plugin hack called MyTwitter.
Use the hack, Tweet What You Eat, to keep track of your eating habits and lose weight.

Become friends with "TWYE" in Twitter, then send messages with food items you consume. Tweet What You Eat compiles your messages in a daily food diary.

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.

Hi. Thanks for your time. Several weeks ago my Facebook account appeared to have been hacked. Someone on Facebook started using my Facebook profile photo and name as a duplicate and sending messages to...


when you click any application on facebook. must read the term and condition. on those term and condition you will find that they write that we can send message to friend about using your name. so this is not a problem of facebook. when you use any application you must read the term and condition aftter reading you should accept the condition.

You can recover your password through yahoo by alternate email id when you set on the time of registration.

My friends are receiving e-mails from my e-mail address with no subject and advertising sexual products and I am not sending these e-mails. Can you help me?


You need to get your mail host involved, and get their opinion. change the access password to your account. If this event happend with Hotmail, they have been being hacked successfully and apparently cannot do much about it.
Hotmail accounts that got hacked also may notice the deletion of the address book..

Also, anyone can put another return address on e-mail, but the clue about your friends may mean your account was hacked. Did all of your friends get mail of this type, then high odds of hack. Change your password.

Received a message that I needed to comfirm my address. I did but nothing happened until they blocked from face book.


When you replied to the email, did you include your log in information? If so, this may have been a phishing email. The email was probably not from who you thought it was. And, you sent them the information to access your account.

First, you need to change your password for your email account. Next, contact Facebook and let them know that your Facebook account may have been hacked and you can no longer access it.

If you believe your Facebook account has been hacked or phished, please follow this link.
