    Ex hacking me!

    My ex somehow knows everything I post of the internet. She never had access to my computer so I guess we can rule out a keylogger. She can find pages I created on sites like Meetup. She can find posts I made and conversations I had on Craiglist. My email address is on yahoo and secured using a code sent to my cell phone. I have frequently changed passwords on various site yet she will eventually find them. How can she do this? Can she somehow employ a hacker to find everything I do on the internet? How can I make my identity absolutely secure and post and communicate with confidence?

    Think about what the ex does know that might be on internet sites:

    Address, phone number, user name(s), e-mail address, etc. Any of these items can be used to locate things you have posted.

    Try changing your accounts entirely online: different ID for each site, new PW of at least 14 characters, several diff email addresses, no personal info or cell # anywhere. I don't even re-use an ID on any 2 sites, and I have 5 email addresses, not because I'm being pursued by someone nasty, but just for privacy. DO NOT use social media.

    I can't guarantee it, but it will improve your privacy. If you can prove she's stalking you, take it up with the police.

    I recall reading recently about someone with a similar problem and it turned out that all of his online acct's were synced with his ex-wife's cell phone which had previously been part of the family acc't/plan. So no matter what changes were made with login's etc her cell phone still had access to everything.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    OK, that's why I suggested the OP should change all his accounts. I haven't seen any site yet that REQUIRES you to add a cell phone #, although they try.

    tbuccino--are you using social media too? And Meetup is sleazy, not the least bit interested in your privacy. Someone was stalking me there a few years ago because I knew she was cheating her group members out of their money. I opened a new account with a diff email address, username and avatar. I'm a woman of many usernames. :-D
