How to Check if Someone Else is Using Your Gmail Account

If
hackers can maneuver their way into the accounts of top US officials who, for
sure, is being protected with high levels of security by the NSA… how easy do
you think it is for them to get into yours?

Hacking
and cyber-criminal these days will do anything to milk some money out of their
unsuspecting prey… And that prey, unfortunately, could even be you.
That
is why you must take some precautionary measures in preventing such from
happening to you. Email hijacking is one of them.

I’m
going to easily show you how to know if someone has currently logged in to your
account, or using your account or your gmail has been compromised.
1.
Go to the Gmail homepage using a computer. Not on your tablet, not on your
phone, but on your computer.
2.
Log on to your account using your username and password.
3.
Once you’re in, scroll down to the bottom of the page on your screen.
4.
On the right part of the screen at the bottom, look for the part that says
“Last Account Activity”. Click on that part.
5.
Under “Last Account Activity”,
you’ll see a list of the last 10 times your account, indicating the IP address
of the computer or device as well as the where you accessed it from.
If
any of the IP addresses seem unfamiliar or suspicious, change your password
immediately— just to be on the safe side.
Unfortunately,
this features is only available to gmail. Other email providers like yahoo and
MSN are still juggling up to meet up.

  1. The IP is nonsense to me Personally. I do check my up IP and it will say something not corresponding to where I am, although most time the "gadget" displayed is always right. Well thank Toni Prof.
