We see the naivete, periodically, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken.
I made my friend an administrator of my blog, and he changed me to an author. Can Blogger restore my ownership?And the short answer, too frequently given, is denial.
No, Blogger cannot help you.
Blogs stolen, supposedly from their rightful owner, can generally not be returned by Blogger.
There are various ways to lose control of a blog.
- Some will, intentionally, transfer control - then change their mind.
- Others will naively make a friend a co-administrator - and have the friend take control of the blog.
- Still others may enable the blog to be stolen by a hacker.
In any case, once control passes to another person, it's unlikely that Blogger can, unilaterally, restore ownership.
Blog thieves are very persuasive - and masquerade as theft victims.
One problem here is that too many would be blog thieves start their tales with just these claims. Long ago, Blogger Support would, obediently, "restore" ownership, when requested - and we would later see the angry forum report.
How did this other person get control of my blog?
Blogger Support would research the second "theft" report - and realise, too late, that they had previously enabled the theft.
Blog owners enable some thefts, with security mistakes and requests.
Also, if you neglect to remember your account name or password, please don't just setup a new account, then suggest that Blogger transfer control of the blog, to the new account. This suggestion, also, has been used to make Blogger an unwitting accomplice in too many thefts.
Blog owners must assume some responsibility for problems.
The bottom line here is that you have to accept full responsibility, for retaining control of your Blogger account and blogs.
Even if your friends account is hacked, then used to attack yours, don't expect assistance from Blogger / Google. And please understand that blog security review won't happen, immediately.
