Hey from last night my Sound Cloud follower has been been disappearing rapidly i feel like someone has hacked my account
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled PRO account hijacked by someone else with a new profile?!.

Hi,

This is pretty serious - I went to access my profile today of one of my other accounts (profile URL /digital) and to my horror discovered that it has been hijacked by someone else with a whole new profile and obviously, none of my tracks. None of my existing tracks show up when trying to search for them either.

Not only that, but this was a PRO account. The association with my email address (when I tried to log in) has also gone as well. I'm particularly worried if any of my personal details and/or credit card have been compromised on this too.

This profile was of archived, original tracks so can see no reason as to why it has been closed down, other than the whole account has been compromised.

PLEASE can you guys look into how this has happened and revoke this guy's profile and hopefully restore my account.

Please let me know ASAP.

Thanks
Andrew

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled My last account was terminated for Tracks that I did not upload!.

I received one legitimate copyright strike on my account after I created a Marvin Gaye instrumental with a uncleared sample. However, after changing my account's password multiple times, it seems someone who had access to my account was uploading various Frank Ocean songs onto my previous account resulting in its ban. I have lost all my followers I earned during the summer and contact with many of my rappers and affiliates is gone. HELP!

Someone probably by name "Rodionova Linett" from Spain had hacked my account and put some vagina's pic as my header image in my profile!
Hi everyone,

So for the first time in a while (probably something like 8-10 months, maybe more) I logged in on Soundcloud via desktop. As I had completely forgotten my password, I requested a new one after typing my account's name (SuperRJ). The site proceeded by telling me they had sent an email to an email address that was about this:
i***@g***

Since it is nowhere near the email address I usually use for creating such accounts I was a bit surprised, and obviously unable to check and click the verification email to get a new password.

So I went back a step, and typed my actual email address instead of my account's name in the form. Then I was able to get to the link and create a new password. So far so good, except I just realized in my subscription list that there was now a ton of artists I am sure I have NEVER subscribed to!

I am obviously quite displeased by this situation, and really wondering what may actually have happened to my account. Have I been hacked? Is there another person who appears to have just the same nickname as me and somehow made it to my account?

On the side note, if that is of any relevance, I am constantly logged in on Soundcloud via your app on my phone.

Well, I would appreciate some light on the matter.
Thanks.
Okay so I don't know for sure if my account has been hacked. I have been using the artist name "Wants" for over a year now. I have never copyrighted my music but I also never fully intended to. My issue is that someone using the same name released an EP. I want to change the way my name is spelled on soundcloud but then their name changes too. They seem to be connected to my account, I'm not even able to get rid of seeing the EP when I change my username.

Help please!

My Soundcloud tracks were all deleted by a malicious user who accessed my account within the last week. Is there any way to recover these tracks?
My account I feel has been hacked..1 of my songs..ThePowerOfTheSon..Had over a thousand views at one point and went down to 969 all of a sudden and seemed to freeze my whole account..there are 3 accounts that have 1 follower...Also all my new songs have been blocked saying that Francis may have already have a right to my songs..makes no sense to me..Thank you,Zclear
I'm trying to figure out how and why someone keeps hacking my account and deleting or reporting my music? Ive contacted soundcloud but still no one has responded to me and I also had to file a dispute which makes no sense, because my account was hacked on the previous day January 30th and all of my information was changed and also hacked again on January 31st and then i got a message that some reported my song RIHANNA as copyrighted in which makes sense to me at alll, someone please help????????????
