How can I tell if my hotmail account has been hacked

Hi Marcia, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

There are several indicators that you can check to see if your Hotmail account was hacked. But before we go further, please tell me:

  1. Are you using a Windows computer, a Mac or a smartphone to access your Hotmail?
  2. Are you still able to access your Hotmail account now?
  3. Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly assist you in checking your computer and your Hotmail account to see if it was hacked?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,

I have a court order against my ex-husband who is an IT expert at Oxford University and I know my email address has been blind copied into him by my solicitor and I now find he has also got this information from a court letter where certain information which should have been redacted wasn't so my email address was exposed. He was also seen outside my house in his new girlfirnds car and I wondered if he could have got some system details by sitting outside using his laptop which he had with him. Since he hasn't to contact me directly or indirectly this would be a breach of the Court order and could effectively put him in jail since the court is already aware that he used a mobile phone app to find out where I was living and breached it once that way -I had to move after that event.
