    Default Someone trying to hack my account?

    I keep getting notifications that someone is trying to get into my account. Every few months or so I get an email from lester.wilson@gmail.com saying that someone from 188.138.1.229 is has failed to guess my login password and has been locked out.

    This IP has also attempted to login to the account a few months ago.
    185.26.122.50

    Is this a real notification?

    Is anyone else in this forum also having hack attempts?

    No one I know would have any interest in using my account. I don't even know why a stranger would want my account.

    Yes, it's happened to me once or twice. I believe there's another thread about it.

    Happened to me too, using a TOR anonymous proxy apparently.

    Always going to be a few bad apples out there.

    I was notified that it happened to me yesterday - they failed - but I'm thinking about updating my password to twice the number of characters.
