Default Password Recovery Problems

So I have an issue... Im sure all of us had had our share of crazy girlfriends but this one tops the list.

So im outside smoking a tig and im browsing through the market and try to download a app.. It promps me for my gmail password for some reason, i thought that was odd but entered it anyways. Whatdaya know. Its been changed. Verizon actually set up this email for me so i have no other email address linked to it and figuring out the security questions is near impossible. Also she changed my facebook so she could snoop through everything. Ahh the drama right?

What can i do? Should i call the Police? Can they find her by her IP address? Should i get a restraining order against her? Really i dont want to deal with any sort of law enforcement as i am on probation and try to streer clear of anything like that.

So Eris community i ask you... What do i do?

i keep passwords on everything and lock up everything before i leave my pc or phone for any length of time. mine is a snooper too. then makes fights out of things that she doesnt understand and that are harmless to her. im not even doing anything wrong. but her ignorance of certain things causes fights. at 1st she was mad that i keep locking her out of everything. now she doesnt even try.

you can call the police, but that wont undo what she did. get everything back somehow and lock everything down. i know what its like to try to recover passwords anymore. it took me months to get my yahoo mail back. that was my fault cuz i changed my password when i was too drunk. lol

You will have to get in touch with google and facebook to recover your passwords. If you did not set up password recovery questions, then you are SOL. When you set up secret questions for password recovery, DO NOT put in info that can be guessed by people who know you or can snoop to find out. You have to make crap up that only you remember.

The cops won't do anything. You can bluff with her and threaten to call the cops, but hell, she probably reads this right now!

since Verizon created that email account for you, you probably don't use it much. I'd just go and create a brand new Gmail account, do a factory reset on the phone (after you right down all the apps you have and contact information) and re-configure the device with the new account. I haven't tried HTC Sync, but that may backup your contact information for you.

Try to get the accounts fixed through google and facebook.

Tell them that someon stole your identity, etc etc...

And next time, don't give people your darn password...

If people treated computer passwords like they treat their wallets, the world would be much better off.

Ok, I changed the title do this might get a few more ON TOPIC replies.

If you have questions or comments that go beyond helping Jmtegra recover his password then send a PM.

Lifehacker had a great post a few months ago about a gmail account getting hacked and what you need to know to go through password recovery. Everybody should probably read it. How many of us know the month, day and year that we started using gmail?
