My mother’s Amazon account was hacked today evening! Got message that someone else is trying to access, she ignored the messages and total of Rs 900+ was debited to AugustaGold app (remember that silver/gold app)! Amazon detected it automatically after a while and stopped, there was total of Rs 1400 I checked the messages now and called Amazon and portrayed the entire thing and looks like I’ll get back the money. Be careful guys! Turn on 2 step verification everywhere.

Didn’t you get sms alert for login and for each transaction?

Why did you suspend the a/c? Just report those transactions and wait for their reply…

Nowadays Amazon sending OTP for every login attempts for most of the users.. also a msg will be triggered to the users regarding login, then how come hackers logged in without OTP ?

I think there is a glitch in prime video app.

When we login in Amazon prime video app then it doesn’t requires OTP and we also get logged in Amazon app with same.

didn’t get any OTP. Yaaken na aye toh Bhai proof dikha dunga subha Amazon ka mail ka.
Primevideo, Music main koi verification nehi lagta. Auto in ho jatah hai.

2 step verification sab ka abhi nehi hota hai, thoda jake dekho how much amazon accounts are still available on the daily. Abhi bhi bohut accounts main numbers are not verified properly. Mera bhai ka account main otp kabhi nehi lagta tha, is incident ka baad dal diya maine.

I have saved 4 Debit Card 2 Credit Card details in Amazon. Although I never load money on Amazon Wallet. Should I remove them. I shared my Prime video login details with 2 friends.

All I can suggest now is to use virtual cards in which you can add little money to do transactions.

Remove all cards ,especially credit cards.
Always keep enabled two step verification.

With 2FA if they try to login new device they have to use 2FA code they cannot do without it.
Also, share with trusted ones only

Trusted ones??

What if they are careless and share it with their friends/relative?

I think nowadays this is increased cause these people have nothing to do, so they are hacking accounts.

Forget to mention, How many have received calls from person claiming to be Phonpe executive or agent. In back 10 days I have received 2 such calls. I don’t know where they get these numbers from. There must be some procedures to report these people.

Actually OP is correct. If you login to Prime Video app on someone else phone and if he already have Amazon app installed then he automatically logged in to Amazon app as well. I think it’s a bug.
