    need help password stealing

    HI
    Last week I noticed on a free counter I use that someone had modified my info (sites) . I re-entered my info and changed my password. It was OK for 2 or 3 days but I noticed he did it again today. What can I do to prevent this?

    BTW my password is something impossible to generate by force (in French mixed with numbers)

    It's most likely that it's not what you think. The probability that he's guessing your password is very low, unless you're really bad at choosing a password, or you've told somebody else your password.

    It's more likely that he's doing it some other way. How do you know him? Or are you just saying "he" as in "he or she"?
