Unhappy people bullying you just because you cosplay?

It really just makes me upset, I use to get harassed online and hacked just because I cosplayed, A guy tried to boss me around, told me I couldn't cosplay anymore cause I was under his control- :| yeah.... I still am being talked about But I really don't care because cosplay is my escape- does anyone else have this problem :c???

I'm so sorry this is happening to you. :< As for myself, I'm never really bullied. My friends acknowledge & have a liking for it as well. Sometimes my brother mocks me but he's only playing around.

You tell very little - and very confusing - things about your situation, so its hard for me to form an opinion on this or give some helpful advice. I don't really know what you mean with getting "hacked" because thats apperently not as easy as TV shows might suggest. And depending the circumstances of your bullying you may have the possibility of escapeing it or minimizing it. But this depends on where its happening and if your bullies are strangers or people you know personally.

And if its just happening in a virtual space, you may have a better chance to get away from it to relax and regain strength.

oh goodness. were you able to report that to facebook? :/ are these people people you know irl and are harassing you online, or just people you know online? if that's the case, it might be helpful to delete all your accounts and just remake them, maybe?

So its happening on facebook? Well, thats the perfect place to get rid of bullies. You can easily block and report people there and hide whats happening on your timeline from everyone who is not your friend.

And nobody can easily take control of your facebook account. As I said, its not like Tv shows and movies make it seem. Often the mistake lies by the user. So your first step should be to find out what happened and think of ways how they could get your passwort (assuming you mean they logged into your account and used it). Maybe you have an easy to guess password or (if the people bullying you are from your school) they could have gotten your password while you were logged in on a public comupter at your school.

After you regained control of your account, reading into the privacy settings and reporting your bullies are the next steps to take.

This. Never save your password on public computers, and make sure it's a password that's hard to guess. If it's like... your favourite character from an anime or the name of your dog, people are going to guess it. The most secure passwords are things that are totally random, like fhhFEHO183Gwsl... or whatever.

Also if you go into your account settings, security, then active sessions, you can close any facebook sessions open on a device you aren't familiar with. I check mine every day, and the only sessions I should ever have open are on my personal PC and my phone. You can also set log in alerts, so if anyone logs into your account from an unfamiliar device it will alert you and you can swiftly put an end to it.

That is not completely true.

Most of the time people hacking accounts are using computers to guess your password, or getting keylogger on other people's computers via malware/viruses/etc.

Well yes, that was just an example. I mean if you put "Naruto123" people are going to guess it in a heartbeat, as opposed to something that has no relevance to you or your interests. Besides, most people don't actually know how to hack or track keylogs, and I highly doubt a real hacker is going to care about cracking the facebook page of a random cosplayer. The people getting into the OP's facebook are probably people they actually know in real life, and I doubt any of them have any real hacking potential.

You'd be surprised. Getting simple password guessing scripts isn't that difficult. Same with the people who DDOS streamers. There are easy to get programs that do the work for them. Will they ever be able to do things that real hackers do, like hack into government websites/sites with stronger encryption? No, but they can do little things, like hack facebooks.

But anyways, my point though was no the password doesn't need to be completely random numbers and letters to be a strong password.

The correct horse battery staple method of passwords works great too!

Again, I was giving an example. I never said it NEEDED to be.
