  1. Navigate to Google's "Contact Us" page (see Resources).
  2. Scroll down to the "Safety or abuse" section, then click on the drop-down menu and choose the option that best describes your situation. When your Gmail account is hacked, choose "Gmail safety and abuse issues."
  3. Click "Report a security problem" on the next screen. There is no option to specifically report a hacked account, so click on "A Gmail user who is sending messages that violate Terms of Use."
  4. Enter your email address, a description of the situation and the names and email addresses (if applicable) of those who have hacked your account. You may not have these latter details, but if you've been hacked by someone at school, for example, feel free to list that person's information. Click "Submit" to send the message to Google, which will review the situation and follow up accordingly.
