    Just a basic question to you guys on this forum: I had a new neighbor move in next door, and for two solid days since he’s been there my internet hotspot was acting weird.
    Maybe a coincidence? I don’t know.

    I have a setting on my phone to turn off my phone’s hotspot after 15 minutes of inactivity. But for some reason the hotspot would stay on for hours, even though I had it set to turn off when not in use – it never did that before, not even once, prior to the neighbor moving in.

    My roommate also noticed weird stuff happening with his Amazon Alexa. The system wouldn’t play the right songs, all of a sudden, and they became scrambled, just playing random songs that weren’t programmed – never happened before.

    Also, videos were running slower on my devices, and buffering when they never had before. These were all red flags to me, so I changed my VPN, and signed up with a different company. Is that enough if I was already hacked?

    Also, can I contact my ISP provider to see if there were possibly additional, unknown devices accessing my network?

    Any help you guys might have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Mike50-

    Oh no, a down-vote? 🙁

    Lol. I was being sincere. 🙂

    Maybe I should try the ghost forum or something? I don’t know what’s been going on with the electronic devices around here, but it’s been weird.

    I’ll delete the thread if no hackers on the sub can think of any ‘normal’ reasons for this stuff to be happening.

    Because something is happening here, but I don’t know what it is…
