Re: How Can an Email Get Hacked?

Hello @cramerwa,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!

 

I realize it's important for you to find out how this may have happened. And I realize it can cause stress and concern knowing your information may have been breached.

 

Keeping in mind how sophisticated the hackers are these days, it can be difficult to determine how your email address could've been compromised.

 

I would recommend you to review a few helpful hints as mentioned by RogersTony to ensure that your accounts are protected: 

 

  1. Use a very complicated password with a variety of letters, numbers, symbols and capital letters.
  2. It's also important to change your passwords often, at least once a month is recommended.
  3. Do not use the same password for multiple services.

 

Hope this helps!

It looks like I have been hacked. Do I just go in and reset my password and that will be the quick fix? DonMt want to have to get a new email address going

Where have you been hacked? Resetting your password is always good. If it's on Facebook, many people get impersonated all the time, just report it.
