Hello everyone. I tried to log in to my youtube like I do every day, and it said my password was changed. So I got back into my account by rechanging the password and I found the hackers ip and device he used to get into my account, provided by gmail.
What can I do with this information?

Absolutely nothing. And most probably has changed the password this human whom you know and who knew yours password. It is someone of the friends or some of the old friends.

Most probably the IP don't help in any way, it is so simple to change. But if You have it, I can try to find out, what it is and where it located. Is it normal IP or something else.

If something similar happens again, You may report to Google and ask to close this account. Yourself You can only change password and remove important data. Nothing more You cannot do.

Well once I got a guy who tried to enter into my email account. The person who tried to enter into it was using a netgear reuter and I found it by typing the ip in www.shodan.io (maybe the person was infected by malware anyway since the reuteur was publicly available) Not that this would work in most cases but if the ip pin points to  an specific reuteur such as this case I wrote I bet you could write an email to their isp.

Didn't Google provide geolocation information together with the IP?

Yes, actually. I know the location (not exact location). I had the location, the device, and ip.

Google provides you this information so you can determine if it could be you that triggered this alert.

 

For example, sometimes when I use a VPN, I'll get such a Google alert because my IP address is from a country I've never been to before.

You could also consider turning on 2 factor authentication for your Google account.

Yes, I turned on 2-step verification right after. In fact, he tried to get in again last night, but couldn't access pass the password because of the 2-step verification process. He must have gotten pass the password because right after you enter the password, a code gets sent to your mobile number to verify, which I got out of nowhere.

Maybe there is an option to recover your lost account by telling the system some info just you know, like places where you have been logged on and friend list
