The issue in GetHuman-skyskipp's own words
HUGE security issue - I find that my account was being used by someone in Italy. (I am in New York).**I have changed my password and the screen name the person added, unfollowed the users I did not myself choose, and blocked the two followers who follow my account. I removed the phone number the other person added.**It does not appear to be malicious but it's a costly mistake for this person, because they have over *,*** nice, normal posts! I hate to just delete the account because I now want to use it.**I don't know how to contact this person since they list MY email address. I could call the number they listed, but I resent the idea of paying for an international call to the person who hijacked my account, even accidentally. **Besides, even if I contact them, I have no idea how to return those posts to them.**I'll add two step verification as an added layer of security but you need to work out how this massive security breach happened!
