Almost everyone uses Gmail as their primary email account on the web mostly because it is a user-friendly and secure email service. Also, most private companies use Gmail (G-suite) for its secure, private, ad-free, cloud-based corporate email service.
In this article, we will talk about Gmail hacking software and how you could avoid getting hacked by keeping your Gmail account secure. However, if you are targeting users using other email services like default hosted email services, This article will equally help you in your endeavor.
Before we begin, let us first look at all the security features provided by Google to safeguard your Gmail account. Only then we can better understand the hacking part.
Gmail security features:
- 2-factor authentication: A 2-factor authentication adds an extra layer to your Gmail security. With 2FA enabled, you need a code which will be sent to your phone along with your password to access your Gmail account.
- Detects suspicious messages: A new algorithm has been developed that delays the delivery of potentially suspicious emails.
- Stronger phishing checks: A warning sign appears in case any suspicious link gets activated. This feature is available only for Gmail android app.
- Advanced protection feature: This includes a physical USB drive to log in to a desktop computer and a Bluetooth wireless device for mobile logins.
The advanced protection feature brings with it a number of hassles like It only works with Google Chrome and it also limits access to many third-party apps. This security feature is worth only if you are a high-value target
Next, suspicious email detection and stronger phishing checks ensure that no poorly crafted phishing emails reach your Gmail inbox. Gone are the days, when it was easy enough to send a phishing email. Phishing attacks these days require a lot of resources and effort.
Now coming to the most sophisticated security feature, the “2-factor authentication”, Google says that only less than 10% of users have enabled 2-factor authentication (2FA). This means 90% of Gmail users are still vulnerable to phishing attacks.
Even well-informed Gmail users could fall for a phishing attack and if you have not enabled 2-factor authentication i.e the second layer of authentication, The hackers can easily hack into your Gmail account if they somehow manage to get your credentials (using a phishing attack).
With recent disclosures on how hackers can bypass 2-factor authentication, it becomes much more important to educate yourself and others to identify and stop every Gmail hacking attempt.
So is it possible to hack a Gmail account with a phishing attack?
Having gone through all the Gmail security features above, I can assert that it has become much more difficult to even get the phishing email delivered to your targets Gmail account. Unless you can craft sophisticated phishing attacks which require knowledge of web development and networking.
Even if you can code and deliver phishing emails, you will also need a lot of patience and sophisticated techniques to extract the information from your target. For instance, read about these latest phishing attack tactics which involve Google translate service and Facebook login popup.

Gmail Hacking Software
I have come across dozens of websites that pretend to have an email hacking software that magically cracks Gmail passwords without any intervention from your part except for proving your target users’ Gmail username.
Usually, these kinds of websites either demand money in advance or ask you to complete online surveys before they even start with the hacking process.
All of these websites are run by scammers who exploit the people who are in need of getting someone’s Gmail password.
A lot of people lose money to these scammers and most of them do get suspicious about the offer before they actually get ripped off.
So do “Gmail hacking software” exist?
No for sure. However, there exist spy apps that will stealthily monitor all the Gmail activities of your target user without actually hacking or cracking their account password.

Spy App to hack Gmail
The only guaranteed way to hack or spy on someone’s Gmail account is to install a spy app on the target user’s smartphone.
It’s also the safest way to monitor someone’s Gmail activity as it doesn’t need any hacking. i.e you need not know the target user’s login credentials.
Once it is installed, it automatically logs all the emails sent and received by the target user in the Gmail App. You will then get all the logs remotely in your email account or online dashboard.
mSpy is an amazing mobile monitoring application that helps you spy on any cellphone that you have access to. Through this application, you can keep an eye on your children’s activities or employees’ illegal activities if they are hiding anyone from you.
