If your personal account has been compromised or hacked, there are ways to regain control.
How do I know if my email or social network account has been hacked?
If you believe an account has been compromised, take the following steps:
Passwords aren't as secure as they used to be, and if someone gets your password, they can access your account easily. Even having a strong password doesn't completely protect you. Two-factor authentication solves this problem. Two factor authentication is a simple feature that asks for more than just your password. It requires both "something you know" (like a password) and "something you have" (like your phone or computer). After you enter your password, you'll get a second code sent to you, and only after you enter it will you get into your account. Unfortunately, you can't use two-factor authentication everywhere on the web just yet. But a lot of sites have recently implemented it.
If you cannot access your account because a password has been changed, contact the support team of the company that owns the web site and follow any steps they have for recovering an account.
