What are the steps to take if my personal email has been hacked?
My personal email has been hacked. I am receiving spam on my work email coming from my personal email account.
What do I do to rectify the situation?
I don’t want to log on and give my grandmother’s first name or answer other security questions if someone else has access to my email account.
It’s AOL, in case you’re wondering.
I recently received an email saying that I should change the password, as “unusual activity” has been occurring. I did change the password at that time.
I don’t want to delete the account as I have emails there that I would like to keep and have access to.
What do I do now?
