I have evidence that someone has been accessing my Google account since I started to login to use a variety of services. I did not have this problem when I was using my Google account exclusively for GMail.

I also try not to accept the "keep me sign in option," but it remains enabled no matter how often I change my password. I feel I have no privacy at all I want to go back to using only GMail.

How do I do this without seeing the Google logo whenever I sign in to my account? Thanks for your help.

How do you know that someone is accessing your account? at the bottom of your google webmail you have " Last account activity: 12 hours ago at this IP (xx.xx.xx.xx). [link]Details" Does that have any relevant information? –  Mokubai Mar 12 '11 at 12:11
The first thing you should do is change your password. The second is to seriously consider using two-step verification. –  Al E. Mar 12 '11 at 15:17

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I would first change your password, and make sure it's not something easily guessed. Then I would contact Google support.

After you change your password, go to your gmail and at the bottom of the page, click "Details". You will see a pop up window that tells you who and where accessed your account. Above it is a "Sign out all other sessions" button, click that to make sure no one else is logged in as you.

I have noticed sometimes my iPhone would log as IMAP but from varying locations, sometimes not even the same state I am in...
