I'm facing a pretty disgusting problem. Last night, I misplaced my iTouch which had my Gmail and Yahoo e-mail accounts synced in it. I'm not going to get the iTouch back, I've checked everywhere, so we can move past that.
I got home and changed my Apple ID and password, removed my credit card on file from there so the person wouldn't be able to make any new app purchases or whatever. I also changed my Gmail and Yahoo e-mail account passwords.
Unfortunately, for whoever who took the iTouch, it wasn't enough to have a new iTouch to play with, but they also went ahead and changed my passwords for Gmail and Yahoo. The hell is the matter with people today? I think they've been able to do this because my iTouch was synced with Gmail and Yahoo and therefore since they're already logged in on both e-mail accounts, they're able to control the accounts and change passwords.
I've regained access to my e-mail accounts through security questions and other methods, but I'm still wary about losing access because this person could go ahead and change the passwords again since they have it synced.
Is there any way I can control this? Can I restrict password changes on my accounts without notifications through something? Also, I re-gained access through security questions and through my mobile phone number that I had listed on my accounts, I'm just thankful this person hasn't changed THOSE as yet. Before they realize that this has been done, and change those too, I'm determined to have full control over my accounts. Can I somehow remove the sync with my iTouch through my e-mail accounts? Restrict something here?
Any help would be great, thanks so much.
