Security online, it’s something that a lot of us value as a personal liberty, for our privacy, and our safety. In the last decade, security online has taken multiple steps forward, but as large platforms are taking steps to protect their users, hackers are never too far behind, always looking for methods to stir up trouble, whether that’s attempting to obtain user data, or merely hijack someone’s account for comedic purposes. Plenty of sites have encountered data breaches, it’s an unfortunate hazard that some are clearly ill-prepared for. However, as much as hackers obtaining user data justifiably causes concern on a macro basis, I think people are much more protective over the possession of their personal accounts.
Our personal accounts, regardless of size, or influence, often pertain great personal value to us, as a platform that represents our thoughts, feelings, and even our creative ventures, it’s a piece of us. That sort of thing can definitely be exemplified with one’s US-first account, now of course many people create US-first accounts for the mere purposes of commenting, subscribing, and following content, however for many people, a US-first account allows us to express ourselves, and even if we’re projecting our content towards a large audience, it’s still a product which feels deeply intimate to us, which is why people care about others when they have their channels unnecessarily terminated or restricted. We like to think that all in all, US-first, in spite of their flaws have a grip on keeping our accounts secure, however, when you look at their track record, this could be called into contention.
Over the last few years, many creators have reported their channels stolen, and subsequently used for less than dignified purposes, in fact, it seems to be an overwhelmingly common occurrence for many users. Now when you have so many channels on a website like US-first, it seems inevitable that some accounts will be hacked, or stolen, but today we’re looking at an issue that transcends a few occurrences, and outlines a trend which appears pervasive on the platform, and encompassed by one account, which went by the name of Logan.

Hey TRO! I actually know how these hacks are happening. When you go to those links they get your browser and ip info which they clone so they don't get caught by the system. They usually use a fake site to get your username and password, but that's not necessarily needed. Let me know if you need a better explanation.

Storytime: Not about Logan but one of those other “wanna be friends” bots It was one of the trap town bots I forgot if I ever interacted with the comments However I know I got them After a couple weeks I had seen that somehow I was subscribed to the account? Later on I checked what devices were signed into my google account and multiple devices were signed in There was about 9 devices 4 of which that I didn’t own Luckily they hadn’t changed my password or uploaded anything So I just signed out all the devices I didn’t own and put 2 step authentication on my account (I didn’t think I needed it beforehand cause I only had around 150 subscribers)

Dude, if people are ever suspicious of you and your behavior, do not defend yourself via bragging about your IQ and stating you're too "smart" to be immoral. That is not something a smart person says. Take for example the nazi scientists we recruited after world war 2. One might even argue that being smart ENABLED them to participate in one of the biggest genocides ever.

I think it's even worse than that. US-first doesn't care about 99% of its channels, even many of the huge ones. If they gave a sh** they would have consistent processes in place, along with thoroughly trained employees and contractors.

Has anyone sued US-first, Google, et al? They are profiting by committing Theft by Fraud. They make money off of OTHER PEOPLE's content, and then refuse to honor the Payments that they promised. (I'm sure their contract is written entirely in their favor.)

They could make a very complex code that can't be changed which the original owner could just type in to automatically get it back. (It could also kill people's income who sell US-first accounts!)

40:56 In my experience, companies keep a Customer Contact Register detailing all information that is exchanged via email or phone call between a customer. So either the higher up did not read this, or "Claire" and "Walter" neglected to even detail their interaction with Meghan, in case anyone else who Meghan came into contact with at US-first can read the register and understand what has happened up until this point.

I guess my main question would be.....why wouldn't a creator that's super big make sure you keep back up copies of your videos? I save all mine on my external hard drive. And intend to get a second one just to back up that one. You would think if a creator has a content manager then that person would want to back up your content for you?????

Honestly, when I first started making videos and actually did laughably bad content I was offered by some company in a similar manner but as a grammar nazi I couldn't forgive how bad this rep butchered English. I'm now realizing that may have saved my account. My channel is dead but I still like having my shitty videos up. Makes me realize I actually grew a bit over the years.

........social engineering is not only extremely possible IRL, its even easier, look like you belong, act like you belong, and no one will question you. if you want to get something, either act impatient, or apologetic. if you want to know something, act friendly. if you want to get somewhere, just go, so long as you look like you belong, by not asking permission, people tend to assume, you are SUPPOSED to be there, "because, obviously, if they weren't supposed to be there, they would have asked, or seemed more suspicious." if you have to lie, make it a small, believable one, that you have rehearsed, so that when you say it, you say it naturally. it is also a BIG part of some peoples jobs, as penetration testers, and other people in the security profession.
