Layman here. Possible breach.

hey there- I’ve just got multiple emails saying that someone has tried to verify a device on my patreon account, from various different countries (so someone obviously trying to get in using a VPN). Does this mean they’re already in? I’ve just changed my password but fear it may not be enough. I don’t really use patreon very much other than like a $1 monthly donation to an artist whose work I enjoy.

I’m pretty much 100% sure that the emails aren’t Phishing, they definitely seem to be from the official patreon site. I’ve checked my bank account and nothing is missing so far.

I handed my phone in to a repair shop earlier today to get my screen fixed- I’ve got it back now and it all seems ok. It’s password protected for what little it’s worth.

What would be some good free antivirus software to give my computer/phone a scan and make sure I’ve no malware?
