How many of you have been hacked after signing up here? I have. Now I can't even send emails to people to say sorry for the spam my hackers sent. If someone knows how to delete an account on Allrecipes, please help me. Also, be careful. This site is not what anyone should call trustworthy...

Haven't had any issues here. How do you konw the problem is with AR? Do you use Facebook or other social networking sites, where else have you give out your email????? The only way I know of to delete an AR profile is by having them do it for you.

knock on wood, it's never happened to me but I know a lot of friends who've been hacked on facebook. Might want to check that out.

I have never had a problem, if you have a yahoo or hotmail account I would bet it is that not Allrecipes. A good password is essential, my sister's hotmail account gets hacked monthly because she gives out her email to everyone.

Ihave a facebook, but I didn't put my email address on my profile. I don't use any other social networking sites.I don't give my email out to people either.

Don't confuse 'hacking' where someone has taken over your mailbox with receiving spam emails. Simply giving our your emial address doesn't allow someone to access your account. I believe you have to provide an email address to join most websites, I know on AR you do, but most don't publically display them. To avoid spam emails, be careful where you give out your email address. Contests and various online promotions are mostly about gathering (and then reselling) email addresses.
 
We do our best to make sure that Allrecipes user contributions are appropriate, but if you see anything questionable, please let us know so we can address the issue.
