    A third party?

    "Who is the third party?"

    This is the question I asked apple when my Apple ID was suddenly "compromised" along with other mysterious occurrences like my A/C breaking at my house and my place of employment, both of my alarms failing to sound in the morning, my vape and dj decks going up and down on wattage and pitch, etc.

    Apple says "weird"

    ATT says "weird. Haven't seen this in my 5 years working at apple when I worked there or here." When I called asking why the provided PUK codes won't work when I am locked out of my iphone.

    One thing I have learned is that it's all in the cables and dongles. Whatever "Malware" I am dealing with, that is.

    But that is besides the point. I was wondering if there is any specific law that I can state that forces apple, amazon, or any of these other ******** companies that have sold me out, to tell me the truth. I want them to tell me if they have given my information to a third party agency ( aka shady government agency, Pharm company, Medical research company, illegal database analysis, etc ) because I have been hacked on one of the most "secure" devices and not only have I been hacked, my actual Apple ID was compromised. So no matter what I did to my device, I was still, as I read in the device analytics, "owned"..

    So I would like to know if anyone else has had their devices "compromised" and what they did about it, how they caught the brown nosers, and what they said to apple to get them to spill the beans.

    Thanks again!

    Oh by the way, macrumors was one of the websites listed online when I was looking at where my email was compromised. Although I love this site, that does suck to have been PWND through them.

    Did you have 2FA enabled on your Apple ID? And did you use the same password for a number of websites?

    No website can be completely/forever safe in truth. All you can do is have a complex password,and enable 2FA.. however the idea a heaps of companies having my moile number just for 2FA not a comfortable thought either

    I've had my Apple passwords and Gmail compromised.. The TeenSafe app on iOS (Database) that was breached and someone tried to access my Gmail account few days ago..

    Since i used complexity unique passwords everywhere, i wondered how they could have "tried" it if it was complex ....ones case and jibberish.. 4esh9^*.... (the Lastpass generated ones). I don't use 2FA, and this won't get me to do it, Because although it was compromised, the issue is "how" if i never give passwords to anyone.

    Although Gmail stand is "If you don't know your password, try one you can remember" . Complexity should have thwarted them. When i checked "Details" in my Gmail account, a different IP from "United Arab Empires" near Dubai was found

    I connect ed to VPN during the day, but at the time i was connected to Netherlands VPN ExpressVPN. which is no where near.

    So, changed my passwords anyway.

    I don’t feel like changing my passwords will do much. It seems almost like these big companies are giving permission for a “third party” to access my accounts.

    Some trust is still needed.. If people are that suspicious then perhaps don't use real information., and don't use web based email.... Stick to ISP..

    The goal is not "it won't do much, so don't do it".. It's more "keeping your account secure" or reduce that fact... at least from those that we "can"control. We have control over what info we give to Apple. so that's a start. But after that, they are the ones who have it, and while policies prevent them (or at least that's what they like you to believe) in order to more more services, the buck still ends with the user.

    No one really needs to come to you to get info... they can easily profile at will.. share amount companies/agencies etc.. but polices try and go to some measure to prevent that, and trusting to some extend, that no government will overstep. (They don't always play ball) but apart from that, don't sign up to any ISP, would be the only option... You'll be offline forever
