Hacked? I don't get it


#1

Hi everyone people have been saying they are hacked on hopscotch


When they say hacked does that mean people are taking over their account?


#2

Yes, hacked means someone else has access to your account and is using it to do bad stuff.


#3

Well I was hacked right before the Halloween contest and the person deleted all my drafts and unpublished everything. They might have simply guessed our passcode (we had a bad one) or used a computer program to hack it. But the point is that they got into our account without our permission.


#4

oh no this is bad! I hope whoever is doing it stops.


#5

Why would someone even hack an account? Just why?


#7

They want to take over Hopscotch? I don't know.


#8

I don't know, maybe is it because they're jealous, they can't earn money by hacking into a kids coding account

I may be a well known Hopscotcher (IDK) and the hacker might have just wanted the fame or glory of being me. Or, he/she might try to bring my profile down and his/her profile up. Thank God, he/she didn't delete any projects.
