2-3 weeks ago I received an alert in my inbox that my account has been accessed from the United States. I'm definite that it was not me since I am all the way here in Asia. It increased my heart beat and had been frantic with worry as to the possible harm it did.
Immediate action? I changed my passwords. All of them! I just don't know if I have to do that every so often. Maybe every month? Every week? Or everyday? Sigh! These hackers are really pain in the ...!
I am then here posting this for you to be reminded to be very careful as well with your passwords. If you can have them changed all the time, and if it is also possible that you have a different password for each account. JUST NOTE THEM DOWN in a safe place so as not to forget them.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS MORNING I got agitated again when I received a mail, from google it says, that since my account has been compromised (blah, blah) they are asking for my password and other contact information. You can't blame me for raising my eyebrows after what just happened, right? I simply have to ask google first before doing just that.
...but does google really ask for info's like that??? Have you had any similar experience? What did you do? What advice can you give me about this?
