Today, almost everyone utilizes a Google Account on their gadgets. The user's identity, YouTube channel, active Google services, location data, saved passwords, contact lists, and many other pieces of information are all stored in this account.
If a Google Account is compromised, the hackers can use this information for malicious purposes, reveal photos publicly, etc. Here is exactly what information can be gathered from a Google Account:
Open the Google Dashboard. It shows the summary of services used by the Google Account owner and the data saved on the account.
The confidential data that can be accessed from here include YouTube (channel and subscriptions), Gmail (Inbox, sent items, and more), Google Maps (timeline, location history, etc.), Google Drive (Photos, documents, and everything), Books, and Chrome (bookmarks, extensions, history).
The hackers can also check the contact list synced with the Google Account and all the passwords saved in Chrome.
From Password Manager, the hacker can view all the saved passwords in Google Account and change or remove them. These passwords can allow them to access social media accounts, websites, and several other important accounts.
Google’s Find My Device is a service meant to find the device if it is stolen or lost. From here, the location of the device can be checked, the data can be erased, and a sound can be played (to find if the phone is nearby).
