Need help.


A few days ago I received a Twitter code because of my 2FA, which made me change my password there.

The next day, I received emails that someone tried to log into my Microsoft account, Reddit, and a few other accounts, so I started changing the passwords to all accounts associated with that email. About 20 minutes later I got a notification saying someone tried to access my iCloud account connected to my iPhone, and the location said someone was trying to get access from Bejing, China.

Then, today, I woke up to an email asking me to confirm my email address from Airbnb, but I have never created an account there. So I reset the password to try and log in, and got into the account to see that it was previously accessed twice from two different locations in China – Beijing, and Zhuhai here is a [screenshot](https://imgur.com/a/cVWFwT4). I also contacted Airbnb to help me resolve the situation but I haven’t received a response as of yet.

I also got another login attempt for suspicious activity from an old game I used to play, with an IP address located in the middle of a lake in Kansas.

I don’t know how someone got my email address, there is only one occasion of it possibly showing up in a breach according to Have I Been Pwned, but that was 3 years ago, with the MyFitnessPal breach.

I created a LastPass account today and I’m in the process of setting everything up there, but I wanted to know if there was anything else I can do so this doesn’t happen in the future. Or if I can find out who’s trying to do this, so I can file a police report, because this has been happening for about a week now

I’m sorry you happened such a bad accident. Before answering it, I have questions:

1. Have you use SMS 2FA?
2. Have you usually login in public wifi?
3. Have you chage your wifi and admin wifi password?
4. Is there anything suspicious or unknown MAC address on your router?
5. Have you check your devices with Antivirus?
6. Have you use same password on your all accounts?
