my ex keeps hacking into my e-mail

Im sick of hem hacking into my e-mail, social networks, and hes going to do it no matter what i tell him. I want it to stop, so i had to create new accounts that he does not know about, so i can have some privacy. but Im still worried and bothered that he might figure them out.

Well if he doesnt know about them, he probably wont be able to get into them.. unless he's installed some kind of keylogger software on your computer. Do you have antivirus/antispyware installed and up to date on your computer?

Get some proof. Then press charges. That should stop him.

That is bad for you I hope you get him to stop. Have you confronted him ad told him its illegal?

Also if he is breaking in via answering your secret questions, i'd say put in wrong answers you will remember. For example for birthday put a date thats a day, month and year ahead, secret question answer with an answer that does not correspond and put in a slightly different postcode.

I'm not sure but it may just help.

WHY are you ALLOWING this to continue??????
Call the authorities and press charges.
If he was to go into your mailbox and open your mail, would you allow that?
If he went into your bank and looked at your information, would you allow that?
If he went to your doctor and got information on your health, would you allow that?

Yes make new email, networks,etc.with passwords he couldn't possibly figure out (mix up your 'normal' one, put it in backwards)...but CALL THE AUTHORITIES!!

Geez...why do woman roll over and allow this to happen??? I don't get it.

Trust me... "going to the authorities" isn't always easy or helpful. I have someone breaking into my email accounts (I have the IP and all since it's gmail) and not only breaking into it, but taking screenshots of emails and sending them to other people in my life. Essentially making my life a living hot place downstairs. Yes, I've changed passwords, reformatted all my computers the whole nine. I currently change my passwords to EVERYTHING every other day (a HUGE pain in the A-crooked letter-crooked letter)

I digress... I live in a huge city... the cops really could care less. Sure they'll take a report, but it stops there. And granted, I do understand there are murders happening that need to be looked into, so *shrug* I'm stuck with an IP of my hacker and a headful of passwords.

I wish you the best of luck. Keep those passwords HARD. I make up a sentence and use the initials of each word. Find a way to use special characters, at least one uppercase, and of course numbers! Good luck and godspeed!

it IS ridiculas. i had the same problem with a stalker. not much you can do. maybe thats why id theft is so easy now. (apparently) i guess thats why she knew she could do it.

I know this is old and probably irrelevant at this point, but I found this when I searched for 'my ex keeps hacking my email.' I filed a complaint with the IC3 (Internet police). They investigate and charges get filed by whatever appropriate governing body (usually FBI). I assure that if you speak with them, they do NOT take it lightly. So, until they start investigating and he is notified, I need to also find ways to keep him out of my accts as he has taken screen shots and forwarded them to people like my parents and boss.... so frustrating and intrusive. It has literally caused a wedge between the man I am dating now and I, caused me to be questioned by my superiors at my job, and started a huge rift with my parents as the we're sent information that was none of their business (I'm 32!). I have opened new accts, changed passwords, changed and inserted ridiculous answers to my security questions. He is in IT making him more knowledge than most however, had my computer cleaned and all passwords changed immediately by an Internet security specialist. It took about 1 week before he got in. :-( I believe he may be remotely logging in to my computer, but I don't know how.... AHHHH!

Hey there - what happened here? This is the closest thing I have read that I can identify with. Did he ever stop? What did you do to stop him?

Its the crappy security they put on password recovery

YOUR Email = YOUR Everything

Secure your email, when they ask for security questions use something that only you know

I change my password's every 6 months

Its common sence

I don't even use my real birthday on password recovery, all my passwords and recovery details stay on my flash drive that's always on my neck

I filed a report, then my lawyer said to press charges, the police said they didn't have the resources to help me. They also told me he had the right to do that because we were still legally married. Come on, that's not right. How can he get away with it over and over and now he has my grown children doing it too. Is there no justice?????? Just sickening.
