How to Hack a Gmail Account

Introduction

You need to think twice before you hack someone's account. Are you sure you want whatever it is you may find there? Is it a decent way to get what you want? Some users try to hack accounts of their beloved to see if they are cheating on them, if this is your case - it is not worth it. If it's come to that - your relationship is already ruined or can be saved only if you both are honest with each other. Others hack accounts to troll other Internet users, which is a pretty ugly thing to do. But if you want to hack your own account because you forgot the password or username, then you should know that there is an easier way to recover it.

Do's

Go to Google

First of all, go to Google. Choose Gmail from the menu at the top of the page. Press on "Can't access your account?" no need to type your username in the Sign In box. The "Having trouble signing in?" window will open. You will need to choose one of the options Google offers you:

  • I don't know my password;
  • I don't know my username;
  • I'm having other problems signing in.

Recovering password

If you are recovering a password, you will have to choose whether you want to get a verification code on your phone or confirm access to your recovery email (if you have one connected to your Google account). If you choose the second option - you will receive a forgotten password, all you will have to do is check your mail box associated with Google account.

Verification code

If you choose a "get a verification code on my phone" option, you will receive a 6-digit number that you'll have to enter in a corresponding box. Make up a new password and enter it in the window that appears.

Modify settings

Log into your Gmail account. Go to your settings (if Google doesn't transfer you automatically) and edit your recovery e-mail address or cell phone number if you have to, so it is easier for you to recover your password if you forget it again.

If you are logged in and don't remember your password, go to: Gmail - settings (screw nut icon in the top right-hand corner above your profile picture) - Settings - Accounts and Import - Change account settings - change my password.

Don'ts

  • Don't try to hack into someone else's account in order to steal data that doesn't belong to you.
  • Don't hack into your account before you try to simply recover your password.
