What causes Account Compromise?


#1

Hi Guys. Just want to recap experiences here. Based on your experiences what trigger AC? Sharing with you my experience so far I tried with my account.

Factors:

  1. Getting action blocked on EB and trying to instantly fix it logging into new device.
  2. I read some get it by using API?

Can you share other causes?

Thank you

Biggest one for me was using API and EB when blocked, or just API.
Also too many logins with different devices. The rest was pretty random in my case.

Thanks for your input. I’m also thinking of that some are very random. Base on my customer’s account after they get AC message. Then when they tried posting they get hard blocked (3 days).

That’s so far experiences of 3 of my clients who got hard blocked.
