Someone's been logged in as me. It said that my last login was 12 hours ago, but i know for a fact that it wasn't me. This user didn't post anything, but is there anyway to find out their IP? Thing is, it could just be one of the college PCs that i logged into with "remember username/password" mistakenly ticked, and someone else might have gone on the forum innocently and been logged in as me.

Change your password - that way it will invalidate any computers you've left logged on

Paranoia is a terrible thing. Lay off the wacky-backy for a bit mate.


Paranoia

1. a mental condition characterized by delusions of persecution, unwarranted jealousy, or exaggerated self-importance.
2. unjustified suspicion and mistrust of others.

We can't monitor where people logged in at; only where they posted from.
