    So I was playing cod and all of a sudden I get logged out and it says I was logged in on another console, so I for somereason just checked my emails and sure enough it said you Had requested a password change and stuff, so I reset my password and now I'm back up, but there is only one person I know who I have given my details to and that is larrymodz here on xpg. And also my bio had been changed to lol Iamnightmare. I'm really pissed, does anyone know if I can track who logged into my account? Or what I can do to Catch this son of a bumba

    Change your Password immediately (obvious) and request it to download the profile again on all consoles.

    I would call Microsoft and tell them what happened. They can track whoever the mo fo is that did this. It might take a bit but hopefully they can tell you.

    Not to be a "fly in the ice cube" or "half of worm in the half eaten apple" here calling microsoft might not be the best thing if this person has done any modifications to his acheivments, etc...

    When this sort of thing goes on it sometimes end up in the loss of a gamer tag

    delete the freind

    try changing you gamer tag first

    as a last resort goto microsoft if you have done any profile mods

    If you don't want anyone to recover your account via hacking, just save it onto your flash drive, because while logged into your xbox they can hack to breach the firewalls and receive access to your hard drive. Although this is not possible if your files are on a flash drive, for it is not a component of your xbox which makes it impossible for hackers to gain access to.
