Recovering from Hijack [Info]
If your account has been hacked - don't panic! You'll be able to secure your account and your device in no time. However it's important that you take the right steps in the right order to keep not just your account as secure as possible, but the rest of your computer/mobile as well.
Below is a step by step guide on securing your account and device in the best and most secure way possible.
What are the Steps to Recovery?
1. Securing your Device (PC/Mobile)
2. Securing your E-Mail
3. Securing your account
If you do these steps in a different order, you risk your account being hijacked again.
Securing yourself after an account hijack means more than getting your account back into your own hands. It may be that your E-Mail has been hijacked, and your device may have a keylogger installed. If you can't be certain that your E-Mail and device aren't 100% secure, then you can't be sure that your account will be secure even after it is recovered.
