A popup will let you know if your google email was breached (or not). If you have not been breached, that’s great news! If you have been breached, then you need to immediately login to your Google account and change the password. Then, you need to reset your Android phones + tablets. If you have issues with the reload, you can consider asking your cellular provider to flash the phone for you. Remember, only download apps from the Google Store, or your employer’s store. Do not install applications from random untrusted websites.
