Anyone having problems with MySpace?

Wierd things have been happening to me on MySpace. First, I couldn't log on, someone stole my password and was posting strange things so I changed it but it was really annoying. Now it is back to normal. Second, I get strange friend requests but before I can accept or decline them, the profile has been removed. I read that MySpace has caught a lot of online predators and sex offenders online recently, do you think that could be what this is? I changed my profile to private after reading some safety tips about social networking sites on the NetSmartz411 site and it has been better. Does anyone know how passwords get stolen or know what these mysterious profiles are? I am worried this may happen again.

Yes, it is hackers trying to spam. What you need to do is change your password. If you are online with myspace and do something that says "you must be signed in to do that" and you know you are already signed in, DONT sign in again b/c that is how your password is getting stolen. You can always set your profile to accept friend request from people who know you only. You could always have had weirdos trying to contact you, it's possible. Good luck.

Thanks! That is great information! How do I set my profile to accept friend requests from only people who know me? I need to check the NetSmartz411 site for that, I have never heard of it. Thanks again!!

You go under the settings menu. It says something there about it. Not sure exactly where, but somewhere under settings. Good luck.

I found it! Thanks! That is a great tip. I am going to share it with my friends and tell my Aunt to make sure that my cousins profile is set this way, so I can make sure she is safer when using the site! Thanks again!
