What if you try logging in your Gmail account only to discover that it has been hacked and password changed.

Since it can be a painful if someone else takes control over your Google Account because all the Google services associated with your account like Orkut, Gmail, Blogger, Google Docs, Google Calendar, AdSense and even Google Checkout are tied to the same account.
So in this Post, I will be revealing some things you need to do if you have been a victim of a hacked Google account and changes the account password.
What to do if your Google Account is hacked
- Reset Your Google Account Password:
(An email will be sent to your secondary email address with a link to reset your Google Account Password).

- For Google Accounts Associated with Gmail
If you’re having problems signing into your Gmail account, then you can try contacting Google by filling the Google contact form. The only criteria here is that you will need to remember the exact date you created the Gmail account.
- For Hijacked Google Accounts Not Linked to Gmail
If your Google Account was hacked when you’re not using Gmail with it, then you will need to contact Google by filling this form. This approach can be of help while bringing back your Google Account if you religiously preserved all your old emails. You will also be required to know the creation date of your Google Account as well as have a copy of that original “Google Email Verification” message that was sent to you the day you created that Google account.
Recovering a hacked Google Account is not an easy work to do but definitely not an impossible thing to do especially when you have all the relevant information in your secondary email account.
