Is there anything worse than finding out your online account has been hacked? If you're lucky, it's a hacker wanting to cause mischief; but, what if it is someone who wants access to your payment information?

It doesn't matter if it is Twitter, Netflix, or PayPal, hackers try an attack every 11 seconds, 365 days a year, 24 hours per day. It's likely your may be hacked.
How Can You Tell if Your StockX Account Has Been Hacked?
Most hackers or bad actors breach accounts for financial gain. They are after payment information, but any information is helpful as they build profiles of possible targets. If they can acquire enough information to access bank accounts, investment funds, or credit cards, they can drain accounts, ruin credit ratings, and steal identities. Never consider a possible hack as insignificant. The most common indicators of a possible hack include:
- Unusual Log in Activity
- Unable to Access Account
- Unusual Charges to Account
Unusual Log in Activity
Many online services notify users if an unknown or different device has accessed an account. Do not ignore those notifications. If others can access the account, make sure they are the ones triggering the alert. Do not assume it must be a legitimate user. It may take a few minutes to confirm, but it's worth it if it saves you hundreds of dollars.
Cannot Access Account
Bad actors may change log-in credentials once they have access to an account. This tactic locks the legitimate user out of the account and gives the hacker access to all profile information associated with the account. If the account has payment information, the hackers will steal that information immediately.
Unusual Charges to Account
If an online account contains payment information, check for unusual activity on your debit or credit card. If using a digital wallet, check for unusual activity as well. This check is crucial if you use the same username and password for multiple accounts.
