Check if your gmail Account is hacked?

I received a weired mail from my friend Stella last night, I was chatting with her within Gmail itself and I recieved this mail from her.

Message Subject: I need help, Plz wire me 10k it’s urgent.

Message Body : Hi , I am in urgent need of 10k, please forward me the money through ********************

I was more of like shocked and angry, I mean I am a tech guy, How could she try to fool me with such stuff that too when I am on chat with her only, So I replied: “You Idiot, Stop kidding me!”

But in few seconds i received another reply from her saying, “I am not joking or anything as such, I seriously need your help, let me know if you can help ” ?

Shit! I said, I called her and asked what was this all about? She replied nothing & denied the entire mail thing. I was now pretty sure that her account was hacked,

We just confirmed it in few seconds, How ?  😕

It is very easy to check if somebody is using your gmail account?

All you need to do is scroll down to your gmail page & check what IP’s are using your account. If you see anything that says

“This account is currently being used in 1 other location at this IP ( “, It means you have a proble there, You need to click on the Details link present there as shown in the image below.

Click on the image to enlarge it.

If you see something like “Last account activity: 53 minutes ago on this computer.  Details

Then all you need to do is to click on the details link in the footer for just a little more verification.
Once you click details you will see a popup window that shows up like this, You will be able to check last 10 IPS that opened your account and their browser details. All you need to do now is to click on the button that says “Sign out of All other active sessions”.
As a precaution you should also consider changing your password, You may change it here.
When we start feeling that if somebody is using our account, We usually start to panic, But there is really nothing to worry about. You easily block the other person’s access using the steps above.
