I was looking at online users and saw that an alternate account of mine was on. Except I wasn't.
I think someone hacked into my account.
As far as I know, they hadn't deleted anything, but still... If they memorized my password...It's a good thing I use a different password than this one!
Relax, lol. Could be for several reasons-- different browser, different? platform, etc. More likely you didn't log out on your phone or something and then checked the site on your laptop, or something to that effect.
That or the mods think its a troll account and are potentially shutting it down. Otherwise nobody would care to hack an account on this site haha.
the only ips your alt's been used from are the one you're on now, and one that's been used frequently. Tan's right, prolly your alt didn't log out. Who's Online isn't super accurate- I've been on the site as a guest & this account still shows as online.
But I haven't been on my alternate account for months, save just now, because I was checking up on it again...
Any brothers/sisters/parents/something else that could do it?
I have a little sister who I've tried to introduce to the site. She thinks it's too complicated. She's forgotten about it for the fifth time, and can't remember her password, let alone mine(which I haven't told her anyway). My parents never really use the internet. And I don't think my cats could use the Internet XD
That would be awesome...
So, you're claiming that before yesterday you hadn't logged into it in months? Because ip activity says it was here 11/29, 12/3, 12/4, 12/8.
(Unless there just happens to be one other person with the same ip as you)
My thought too.
My phone used to log me in each time I opened my browser because I forgot I had it in a tab there. Same for my Ipad, actually my Ipad still does it thinking about it now so it is probably somthing like that.
Modern browsers like to be helpful by saving logged in status and info and automatically doing things for you without ever warning your they are doing it...
