Please change your password immediately from the Passwordtab in settings. If you are logged out, go to Login and click on Forgot Password to reset your password. Please select a strong password you havent used before. If you cant login, your account may have been hacked.
If you frequently receive password reset messages that you did not request, you can require that your email address and/or phone number must be entered in order to initiate a password reset.
Make sure that the email address attached to your account is secure and that you are the only one with access to it. You can change your email address from your Kubo Social by logging in and visiting the General Settings tab.

Your account should now be secure, and you shouldnt see the unexpected account behaviors moving forward. If youre still experiencing issues, please file a support requestfor assistance.
If your account has been compromised, take these additional precautions:
Accounts may become compromised if youve entrusted your username and password to a malicious third-party application or website, if your Kubo Social account is vulnerable due to a weak password, if viruses or malware on your computer are collecting passwords, or if youre on a compromised network.
Unexpected updates dont always mean that your account was hacked. Occasionally, a third-party application can have a bug that causes unexpected behavior. If you see strange behavior, changing your password and/or revoking connections will stop it, as the application will no longer have access to your account.
Its best to take action as soon as possible if updates are appearing in your account that you did not post or approve.
If you think youve been hacked and youre unable to log in with your username and password, please take the following two steps:
Reset your password by requesting an email from thepassword reset form.
