Someone is trying to guess my gmail password
Password resett requirement.

 10:25 pm on Apr 3, 2009 (gmt 0)


Frecuently I get messages that says click to resett my gmail password.
I know there shoulb be people trying to access my email account.
When I see the headers I only see the google ips, but not the ip of the responsible.

The question is. How do I find out about the ip of the people who wanted to reset my password?

You should be able to report this to Google. Usually in those reset messages there will be a link at the bottom that says something like, "If you did not request this reset please click here" or "If you have received this message in error click here." If that method doesn't exist, I'm not sure how to go about reporting it to the Gmail team.

I think you can serch some softwear to find that ip.

What would you do if you could see the IPs?
Usually, it's some script running automatically, bruteforcing any username it knows, not one of your friends trying to get in. I understand you'd like to take action, but Google sharing those IPs with you might result in problems with the their privacy policy and certain laws. If you don't have a strong password: change it. If you do: rely on that and forget the attacks.

If you think someone is actively targeting you, specifically, set up the gmail account to forward to another account, change the password to something about three feet long and then don't log in or touch the account for a month at the least.
