Hacking hiccups?

This morning, I found that my gmail login password had been changed. This sort of thing has happened a bazillion times in the past decade.

And, apparently, my 2FA phone number had been removed so that I could not log in.

I also had trouble accessing other e-mail so I currently have no access to my gmail. Working on solving various issues at the moment. This has been my life for over a decade now. One gets used to it.

Earlier this year, I received a strange warning that seemed to suggest that a narcissist was going to destroy me (sure, whatever), but perhaps more significantly, I received the following three non-permanent popups on the SIM-less phone that I was using for my videos.

  1. For you.
  2. He knows too much.
  3. I would go to the police (if I were you).

Oh, yes, whoever’s been pestering me has all my logins. But of course.

11:34 Resolved.

My 2FA phone number had NOT been removed from the Google account so this must have been a Google #fail

Oh, if only every problem in the world was this easy to solve!

My gmail looks fairly normal today, more like what it should look like rather than what it has been looking like for far too long. (If I am still not getting all my e-mail, which I do think is the case, well, then it’s way too late after all these years for this to still be of significance and to worry about it.)

11:49 It turns out to be a PHONE-related hiccup?

(I just entered the new password and once again, it tells me it’s the wrong password.)

Oh, it may be that randomiser thing, perhaps (hacking). I have SEEN that in action in the past.

Is gmail urban slang for something, by the way?
