    I normally use tapatalk to access APS but today I have had someone try to access my acc twice causing my to be locked out from the forum when using tapatalk. No happy!
    Has anyone had this happen to them?

    I had the same problem a few days ago. I tried to access it through Tapatalk and it said I had got my password wrong more than 5 times.

    I had the exact same thing. I think it's more of an APS/Tapatalk problem than someone hacking your account though

    I did a search on the ip that they said the atemps were made from and it came back with a company in San Fancisco. Got to love technology.

    1. Because they can
    2. Because they don't have a life
    3. Because they certainly don't have a love interest to keep them occupied, besides their hand, their computer screen, their bedpost and a tube of astroglide
    4. Because they think that by somehow ******* off the masses, they may one day gain the attention of the major security and anti-virus companies and subsequently get paid squillions for writing code that would have stopped them from doing what they do... until the next zit-faced, cheezles-scoffing, greasy-skinned wannabe jerkoff gets through their wonder-code, and then the cycle starts again.

    Im pretty sure no one has changed your password Damian as we dont have access to members passwords. There was a recent software update that may be causing problems but Im unsure if this is the cause. If your still using the same email address I can send you a password reset if you want? message me and let me know ok.

    maybe its your own computer with the problem or has been hacked?
