I and no one I know have had issues retrieving our account. o.O  


Then that's good because some people from /r/gaming and EA forums are claiming that they cannot retrieve their account since their info has somehow been changed.

Anyway, anyone who owns an Origin account should get a transcript of their account info just in case.

Sorry for the double post.

When you make the account, you should take Screenshots proving you own it. Like I did with this account after my previous one suffered an attack and was hacked. Back then I didn't take any care about internet security, now I do Smile

You should also never use fake email accounts, and always email services that offer extra security lauers...like Google links to your phone and alternate email in the case your email info is compromised.

I can't believe EA is denying any hacking into their database. Myself and tons of people I know playing GW2 have been hacked.  

GW2, Origin, EA. Hmm.. I'm thinking, I'm thinking.
Ok, I give up. What does GW2 have to do with Origin?

Are you thinking of a different GW2 or am I missing something here?

Err I meant UO, I have no idea why I typed GW2. I have a bad habit of doing that when I'm talking to multiple people. *has never actually played GW2*

I would say go now to origin and get rid of all personal information... Because even if u changed your password doesn't mean they can't get into it again...

Kind regards,
