Hacking My Old Gmail ID

184°

When I was a child back in the late 2000s I created my email ID – [email protected] Dot com. But then I soon realised I wanted something cool like TheRock1997OriginalGangster…[email protected] Dot com. 

Need less to say I fcuked up. Now it’s 2022 and I want to recover that email ID. How do I do it? I have absolutely nothing on that email ID as security questions or old password (this was in 2007, come on). 

Willing to pay.

I am afraid there’s none. You might mail Google regarding this but will be pretty hard to gain access of

I think there is a hope if you have added the primary email as the recovery email for the cool email id

Nothing will work. Google won’t allow you to reset the password even if you show them your identity proofs. I have tried 100 times to reset my id created in 2009. Tried everything but it was just a waste of time.

My first id was just my initial followed by surname, it was so common that i used to get lots of emails for others, i got access to bank account numbers and pan nunbers of my namesakes.
may be ppl inadvertently used my email or banks/telecom co just picked it up to fill data durinv old days.
One fine day google suspended that id, i remember the password, tried everything but thwy wont give access.. Now have set all my bank and shopping gmail ids with some random combination.

Did you register in any website or sent an email to someone with this email ID then it will be easy to recover it otherwise the email ID is very hard to recover.

I don’t remember that I created my wife’s email ID myself or it was owned by someone else.
A few years ago, I thought I had created this email ID so I tried to login… but it didn’t work. 
I tried resetting the password and somehow, I was able to reset the password. I logged in and changed the passwords etc.

This email ID was actually used by someone else in Delhi. She had used this email ID in Facebook, multiple job sites, shopping etc. So I donno it was created by me and hacked by that girl… or she created that email ID and I hacked the same wink

If your mobile no. is linked then you can reset the password using the OTP sent.

Can we change our old email id,likefrom [email protected] to [email protected]??

How? No!
At most add the “reply from” option.

And auto forward mails from “abc” to “xyz”.

The auto-forward does not work for the e-mails which Gmail marks as ‘spam’.
So take note.
They have weird parameters. Even my own address (of a different e-mail service), which is added as contact and even the recovery e-mail address 
too is often sent to spam.☹

The ‘from’ address can even be from a different e-mail service.
But for me, it is best used when I have to write from the specific address with the ‘dot’ in it.
Often I segregate e-mails on the basis of where they are sent to (abcxyz versus abc.xyz versus a.bcx.yz).
The ‘from’ address can just be customised for our own address too, incorporating the ’dot’.

The ‘last password’ you remember in the recovery process doesn’t refer to the current password.

 

Infact they want the user to give previously kept passwords itself.

 

And since you have also locked a mobile number with the account, @RanSome also mentioned above, if you have access to that number

then what you are saying… does not make sense to me.

How good are you in these things?😀

 

few years back, I made a random address in the format: firstnameLastnameYear (abcdwxyz2002) in Gmail.

 

Some idiots (or a single one, although unlikely) have added it to thei UIDAI account or details

and to SBI cards.

 

I do not think that the real [email protected] has any access to that e-mail account of mine.

 

Whenever I log in to that inbox, I often see UIDAI (Aadhar) online access related e-mails (some with verification link/ OTP).

and

SBI Card even sends account ledger (password protected) to my account.

 

Neither UIDAI nor SBI Cards is removing me (that address) from their records.

Even when I mail them from same address.

 

Any help or suggestions you can extend for such cases?

I have no idea of the person’s UIDAI registration (Aadhar) number, (SBI) Credit card number or ANY other trace of who the person is or where they live.

 

Even if I get the person’s real active e-mail address or phone number, I can request them to fix this.

Sonetimes even get e-mail verification e-mails from strange sites/apps.

 

Not sure if the person themselves is confused and mistakenly using my (dummy) address on-line.

But still not happening don’t know the reason . I know that will possible tried but no luck . I think reason maybe I have lost previous mobile and Google maybe not able to find my previous device so maybe this happens i think .

Oh of-course I preempted such scenarios and even made a post with few observations here https://desidime.com/discussions/hacking-my-old-gmail-id#post_8433969 but oddly it isn’t showing up or seems deleted!

 

In it, I did make an observation (from personal experiences too) that oftentimes these stupid Gmsil or Google services even misinterpret even THE SAME device as an unrecognised device.

Merely because some privacy browser is in use that doesn’t allow them to keep many trackers.

 

And even more common is when ISPs change (IP ranges change significantly) or Google assumes that someone is trying to access the account from an unusual location.

 

For me, it often helps to find the same ISP and similar IP addresses as used to access i  the preceding months and hopefully Google doesn’t throw up the ‘unrecognised device’ error.

 

 

Okay, so I tried to recreate my earlier (apparently deleted) comment again, just below https://desidime.com/discussions/hacking-my-old-gmail-id#post_8435246

May not directly help Motorcyclesagas or others with long unused (Google) accounts.
But just like Ron Miller https://techcrunch.com/2017/12/22/that-time-i-got-locked-out-of-my-google-account-for-a-month
I too had some observations or revelations.


One is that, often on THE SAME device, Google is idiotic enough to give the ‘unrecognised device’ alert and then ask verification questions.

In my analysis, this is often to do with browsees removing any trace of previous use AND with IP ranges.

Mostly faced this ‘unrecognised device’ issue when in private mode or using various browsers other than Google’s own.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to get in, if Google assumes that the IP address (range) or location/ ISP is way different than on the past 7-8 access.

In my case, during Covid 19 lockdowns, I was literally at my wits’ end, when nothing worked to prove my identity to Google.
Luckily, I had often used my Google login at a relative’s place and on their devices (including Tablets) and left it logged in, at times even when I was away (Tablet).

Just to try my luck, I actually tried recovery of Google account from their home, despite not on a device regularly used to log in to Google services.

and voila😀! They verified me this time, no password change needed.

Google/,Gmail long stopped giving the ‘security question’ option for new users.

But my account was ages old and I even had noted down the ‘labels’ / ‘folders’, regularly mailed to addresses, the subject lines of frequent or recent e-mails and of-course the probably ‘last password’ options.
But none of those worked, in my case.

P.S.: It was/is a regularly used account. Not even 24-48 hours pass when I have not accessed it (in past decade plus).

Sundar is currently in a meeting.

And his schedule is full for coming 127 years.

Would you like to wait, for the almost impossible probability of him even looking at your request?

Or instead, have your concerns redirected to Sundar Picoffee?
