A serious matter, was my account hacked?

Yesterday I tried to log in but it wouldn't let me.

I ended up sending a support ticket to Aeria Games and they said it was temp disabled because it was accessed from an unusual IP. They gave me my account back and urged me to change the password, and so I did.


I saw I had one new message though and it was a reply to a message where the topic was 'key'... All the reply said was "how did it fix?" .......... I looked at sent messages and I couldnt find anything... So i believe maybe the guy deleted the message he sent on my account?

Is there anything else I should do to make sure my account is safe?

1) don't share your password
2) use strong password
3) don't share your password
4) don't visit malicious sites
5) don't share password
6) check the url to verify that you're visiting the right site before entering a pw
7) don't share password - ever
8) don't use similar password for the sites you're visiting
9) again, don't share your password
