    I dont use the App Store account but noticed a few days ago that it says i have an upgrade available.
    I just went to click on it to see what this was about and it showed me an email address that is definitely not mine but said i had to log into that account and then said i had 4 others to log into as well.


    I am going to assume that someone, has someone got into it via my laptop?
    Is this possible? But no one has been physically near mine and what wold the point be otherwise?

    And if so, how do i get rid of the balloon that is telling me log into some account ?


    I can post a screenshot of the email address showing if necessary......?

    If you believe someone has hacked into your apple account you should call apple and let them look into it.

    Screenshot at the above link

    The email address is patrick@kontschak.de


    It says i have 4 more email accounts but i cant seem to see those ones

    But if they are using another email address, then they really arent hacking into my computer, are they?
    This doesnt really make any sense?

    Either Angry Birds or Chopper 2 it seems

    Remove the pirated applications and that should go away.

    Solution is to purchase and redownload the applications using your app store account.

    on what?
    my phone or my computer?
    not sure which one you are asking about?

    one of my kids I believe has put angry birds on our iphone but its not on the computer
    No idea what Chopper 2 is

    As for re-downloading them new, I dont use them at all so why would i want to re-download them?


    So if I dont have it on my computer, then this must be for the iphone?
    could my son have put it on someone elses computer?

    Not sure i am fully understanding if its someone that has hacked into my account or not?

    (actually, I shouldn't say I dont use them at all for i have played angry birds and its a great game and I can understand the addiction but I just dont have time to get into it as my son has)

    You might wanna talk to your kids. They have either had a friend sign in to there account and download an app on your device or there downloading cracked apps.

    Did your kids install pirated apps that are only available through the App Store on your computer? Even if the app wasn't Angry Birds.
