What should I do if I suspect that my account was hacked?

Change your password

If you suspect that someone else might have access to your account, please change your Grammarly password by going to the Account page. Changing your password will log out all devices that might be connected to your account.

Note: You might want to review the list of devices connected to your account on the Devices tab in your account settings.

If you do not remember your current password or you created your account via Google, Facebook, or Apple, you can request a password reset email at

Note: If you sent a request but haven’t received a password reset email, please check out this article. If the password reset link redirects you to the login page, then please see these instructions.

It is important that you choose a strong and unique new password. Also, if you were using the same password for other services, we advise you to reset it for those services as well. 

Enable two-step verification

To prevent this type of issue from happening in the future, we recommend enabling two-step verification. With the feature turned on, you will be required to enter an additional six-digit code when logging in to your account. To learn how to set up two-step verification, please see this article: How to set up two-step verification
