I am sorry your phone got stolen @hafizaliconfounded face

If you still have access to the email address that was associated with the account this will be easier than you think. 

Step 1. Reset your password and log into your account on 

Step 2. Unlink the stolen device taking the steps offered here

I would be happy to know you are back in your account or help more with this. 

Keep me posted please!
