Have you changed your password since this started happening? What probably happened is that you logged into YM with the "Remember my ID & Password" option checked, and other people using the same computer are able to login to your YM account.

You need to change your password right away, and try to use a very strong password format (combination of upper and lower case letters, special characters and non-dictionary word match). This will void the stored password in the scenario I described earlier. The next time you sign into your YM, make sure that the "Remember my ID & Password" option is NOT checked, especially if your using shared/public computers.

If the computer has a keylogging program, that's a different issue.

Have you experienced someone hacking your phone like rerouting all your info


No.. in all my many years (since the first release of Android in 2008), I have never had any problems with Malware, Viruses, Trojans, hacking, etc on an Android phone or tablet. It may be possible to hack someones Android phone, but you'd have to be a celebrity to make it worthwhile for someone to do that. It would be a big waste of time for most average people to target someone like that.

How can I recover my dragon game w/ I'd paslit123?


Only the person who has the correct password to the ID, can change the password. So if you can't access it anymore, you have to assume someone is using it now and you won't be able to get it back.
Perhaps someone you know guessed your password and hacked into the account.
If you have to pay for the account, please contact the firm and ask them to block it, because it is hacked.

How can i open a YM account but i dont know the paasword.


Hey,

If you are opening a YahooMail(YM) account for the first time, you will need to register first and you will be the one to create the password. Make it something you can remember easily.

Then each time you go to Yahoo website, click on the mail link or go to mail.yahoo.com to supply you Username and that password you created in the appropriate tabs. You will be live in your email box!

If that was not the problem then here is another solution:

It seems this particular email address is important to you. But here is something you should know: YahooMail(YM) has undergone several updates in the past 12months. Each of these times they ask for update of personal profile. You probably missed out on all of that.

Now if you have not accessed your YM for along time and you still remember your User Name, then request for the password to an alternate email id you hopefully had provided.

If you did not provide and alternate email Id, there is no way you can gain access to this very email Id.

Enjoy.

How do I let someone know I want to IM himWhat do I click on to activate the program


First, add the person's e-mail address to your YM. Then send a message to him. Even if he's offline, he would receive your message.

If you would like to have an on-time conversation with him, you need to call the person and both of you needs to log-in to YM.

Have a great day!

My face book ID hacked and miss used by other user v.serious prob


This is why you DO NOT store personal details or contact information about anything or anyone on the Internet.

Contact facebook support (or check out this article) and give them this same information. They'll either delete the account or let you choose a new password.

By the way, the account was, "cracked" not, "hacked." ;-)
