What’s Behind Suspicious Activity Suspensions on Reddit?

A few years back, there was a massive suspension of Reddit accounts, and numerous users found their accounts locked suddenly. The explanation from the platform’s support staff was that most of these restrictions were safety precautions since their security system detected unauthorized logins.

Suspended users got more detailed clarification in the emails notifying them of the lock put on their account. These messages assured users there was no security breach on Reddit but that some other platforms had security issues. They further say that these hacker attacks on other platforms may have exposed Reddit users’ login data in case they used the same passwords across platforms.

Other possible triggers for this sort of suspension are using a VPN or frequent traveling and logging in from different locations.

Reddit Community Reactions to Suspicious Activity-Related Locks

Many Reddit users didn’t find the explanation from the platform satisfying since Reddit claimed their authentication system is too strong to be hacked.

Users also didn’t find any suspicious posts, activities, or logins that would suggest that anyone other than themselves meddled with their accounts. Only a small group of users admitted to having weak or reused passwords and reported weird sign-ins from locations on opposite sides of the world.

Off-the-Record Explanations From Users

Redditors aren’t convinced that serious security threats are the only reason for the frequent suspensions. Some users believe that the platform is attempting to get rid of spammers and manipulative posts.

This is supposedly why the platform’s algorithm will flag any account with an activity that remotely resembles a bot’s.
