Having just looked at my adsense account, which hasn't been making much recently, I have realised that on the performance reports (under sites) a website that I have never heard of is listed under my own three sites. I clicked on it, it appears to be in chinese. I am really concerned because a while back I couldn't enter my password for my account, it came up as invalid. I usually have my computer remember the password but it is pretty significant to me and so I would not forget it. I tried several times and then changed the password and never had the problem since. I can only assume that the account was hacked - and that they probably have my address, email etc. The page views for the chinese website are extremely low but I want rid of it, how do I do that? I wanted to contact adsense but could only locate the invalid clicks page - should I report it there? Any help much appreciated.
I had a Google message saying that many Accounts are hacked if you use the same password for different sites so I changed mine the other day. The worrying thing is if they change your bank details in Adsense
If its under URL channels, go to 'My Ads' tab next to 'Home' and then you should see URL channels and you can remove it from there. Its not handled in performance reports anymore.
Other than that, if everything appears normal just change your password..its up to you
I use the Google authenticator on my phone. It generates a number, which I have to enter in addition to my password to access any Google service. I got it after my Gmail was hacked last year.
That's a good idea, though looks like you have to have a smartphone to use it (which I don't). Hate the idea that someone can do this - but you never think it will happen to you until it does (at least I don't)!
Thank you for that. I was wondering how I can be 'safe' when I am using Android. Thanks for the tips

My HubPages account was hacked yesterday. I had posted about my earnings in one of the forums here in response to a question that was asked. This looks like a targeted attack on my account here. The hacker changed my password, changed my pic, wiped my bio clean and entered a different email under...

I just read on another thread that we must add the niche sites to our AdSense account. I don't know anything about this and don't know how to do it.

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still had concluded that my AdSense account has posed a significant risk. And I have no...
