    I didn’t think that helped. I tried many times, but the hacker of my boyfriend’s account changed the recovery phone numbers and emails. Can you provide us another option?

      Sometimes when you are not able to login, Google will ask what was the old password you remember. This could help.

      If the hacker has changed recovery phone and email, then you would have received a notification. There would a link with the notification to revert. Use that.

    The one I proudly called the love of my life obviously didn’t feel about me the same way I felt about her, I heard talks about her lover but I trusted her with everything, just to clear doubts I hired , (cyberwebkey484(at)gmail(dot)com) to hack into her phone so I could prove his critics wrong but it was I that needed to come to new lights, I was played and I wouldnt have known until I hired an hacker , (cyberwebkey484(at)gmail(dot)com) who cleared my doubts within a few days by showing me Emails, pictures, viber texts, whatsapp messages, her facebook and a host of other things I’ll prefer to keep discrete, I’ve heard of fake hackers too so I recommend this one ‘cos i know he genuine.

    @layeeqwani:disqus Check your secondary email where you would have received the notification for change in security options. I think there will be a link to undo that.
