Tips to Find Unauthorized Activity on Your Email Account


Do you suspect that your email account is under attack? Do you want to maintain total security of your email account and make it 100% hack proof? Well, Some times our email account might have got hacked and we may not be aware of that. We may believe that our email account is safe, but in reality our private and confidential information may be falling into the hands of a third person.
Here are some signs of unauthorized activity on an email account.
1. Your new emails are marked as Read even if you’ve not read them.
2. Your emails are moved to Trash or even permanently deleted without your notice.
3. Your emails are being forwarded to a third party email address (check your settings->forwarding).
4. Your secondary email address is changed.
If you come across any of the above activities on your email account, then it is a clear indication that your email account is hacked.
Additional Security Features in Gmailto ensure the Safety of your Account
Gmail provides an additional security feature to protect your email account through the means of IP address logging. That is, Gmail records your IP addressevery time you login to your Gmail account. So, if a third party getsaccess to your account then even his/her IP is also recorded. To see alist of recordedIP address, scroll down to the bottom of your Gmail account and you’ll see something like this.

You can see from the above figure that Gmail shows the IP address of last login (last account activity). You can click on Details to see the IP address of your last 5 activities. If you find that the IP listed in the logs doesn’t belong to you, then you can suspect unauthorized activity.
Steps to be carried out to stop unauthorized activity on your email account
If you feel/suspect that your account is hacked then you must immediately take the actions mentioned below
1. Change your Password
2. Change your security question.
2. Remove any third party email address (if any) to which your account is set to forward emails.
3. Make sure that you can access the email account of your secondary email address.
4. Also change you secondary email password and security question.
This ensures that your account is safe from future attacks.

This email account has not been registered to any facebook account. You may have changed your email account and you should try another email account that you own. You can also try logging in with your mobile phone number and password if you linked that to your account or you can even use your username (facebook.com/yourusername) and password to log in.

Can not get onto hotmail. I have forgot my password. Have tried many times and still have not gotten on.


Go to the Hotmail logon screen and click on the "Forgot your password?" link.
You will be asked for your Email ID and then a series of questions will appear so that your identification can be verified.
The account is probbaly locked by now, so if you remember your password, it may not work until you go through the exercise of resetting your passwrd.

All I can think to do (Besides calling Microsoft who currently owns hotmail), is to tell hotmail that you password. If he has another e-mail address he may have put this information in when signing up for his hotmail account. If he tells hotmail he forgot his password, they should send it or a new password to his other e-mail account. If he did not provide them with another account I reccomend calling microsoft.
