Customer Question
Someone hacked my account...

Someone hacked my account and changed all my passwords and information I've tried all the prompts and called Verizon

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your email account on any other devices?

I'm in a custody battle and my husband did this to try and get into my Verizon account .

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

So he logged me out and logged himself in

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

He changed everything

Can you please confirm if the email account in question is with Verizon, having an email address that looks like***@******.*** (which is recently migrated to AOL)?

What's your evidence or symptom to support what you speculated being hacked? Please paste the notification, message you received or simply upload a few screenshots to tell more info.

Thanks.

Which app?
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 1 month ago

Okay, I think it is caused by your Gmail settings.

Please click HERE to visit your Gmail via web and let me know if you can log on using the password ***** know.

FYI - I am in a remote session now, so can't be available for about 30 - 50 mins.

However, please do update me your progress here. Thanks.

If I delete the account off my phone will it shut it down or will it still be accessed to him. I don't want to report it just fix it. But if I have to .
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 1 month ago

> If I delete the account off my phone will it shut it down

If you are talking about to ONLY remove email access to the given Gmail address from your phone, it will have no impact to your phone.

As you are using an Android phone, probably you are also using the Gmail account to sign on Google services such Google Play on the phone. Is it the case of you?

> or will it still be accessed to him.

As mentioned above, if your phone is signed in using that Gmail address for Google services, he may access your phone's data from the Google side, including tracking your location.

> I don't want to report it just fix it.

Do you who he is in person?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It's my google attached to the phone. He is my husband and we are having custody issues. He is doing all sorts of things to me worse than this so I'm just trying to shut him down.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 1 month ago

Sorry for the typo. I mean: Do you know who he is in person?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
he is my husband and took off with my kids and started doing all sorts of things like hacking my email and locking me out of my Amazon kindle, music, etc . Now that he controls my account he can do all sorts of things
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
At this point I would just like to shut it down but I don't even have a way of doing that.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 1 month ago

> At this point I would just like to shut it down

If you are no longer interested in accessing the given Gmail address, you may simply remove it from your phone.

As I don't know the details of you phone, I just give you the general steps below for your reference.
