Someone hacked my Gmail account and now I can't access it. The hacker changed my alternative Gmail also, and phone number.

Is there any way I might recover my account?

  • The other question is slightly different, but the underlying answer is really the same.

It is almost impossible to recover to gain access to your account. Alternate email and phone number are the 2 key critical factors of securing a gmail account. If both are changed then the account is owned by the person who has changed it. Gmail does not provide an effective account recovery in this case.
