thankyou guys !

no each time I get this its always a different person , never the same twice
sometimes people employ a detective
if they think you are after their partner or ex partner I think

my therapist also said similar things
about you being hyper vigilant
we also traced it back to recently some of my videos
were stolen from Youtube
which has triggered this paranoia thing

saying hello might be a great idea actually !
if they were a detective it might make them feel awkward

You sound like a 'targeted individual.' This is what many people all over the world are experiencing. These people are called "perps." This sounds like the typical street theater that they do.

Subota I was thinking the same as Midnight
even if autoplay is switched off
there may be some algorithm whereby something gets played by accident
what was the content of the mystery film in question ?

Justme I dont recommend giving them the finger
because being aggressive back blows your case .
if you can find a gentle way of letting them know you are aware
then that blows their case

thankyou Handyman , yes because comments on some of my youtube videos
have been turned off as well
I think gently showing them you are aware is helpful
I did not get much NLP from them today
apart from

" doesnt mean she is not being looked after ' at lunchtime
so they are being more gentle and claiming to be watching me for my safety
I dont buy that, I dont need them to come unannounced
and watch me for my safety

I also get targeted with germs
there was a man with a streaming cold near me in the library
I gently tapped my ear and he immediately left

The video that appeared was Hans Zimmer - Red Warrior from The Last Samurai...nothing remotely like anything I listen to, I've never seen the movie so i don't know how it could be an algorithm thing. I appreciate these ideas though! Could it be in there to have some sort of meaning to me?
I also agree about maybe not flipping them off... you never know who may react badly with hostility because of that lol😅

I was going to make my own thread about this but since you are talking about your YouTube being hacked I have a question...I don't know who to ask about this...
Last night I had YouTube open on my ipad because I listen to binaural beats when I sleep. For a bit I was on a different app and when I went back to YouTube there was a video in my history that I did not watch. I didn't have YouTube open on any other device. So in my mind I am thinking someone has access to either my YouTube account or hacked my iPad and can operate on it without being near it. Is that even possible? I don't know?
Of course I am nervous s to post this but I am more just fed up and irritated. It may seem like something small but it really freaked me out and I don't know how it happened. I know it's something small but you know a lot of small incidents build up, that's how they do it
Do you share your account or devices with anyone else? Or have you used someone else's device and logged into your account?

If someone knows your account info they can get into your account at any time,on any device,even on the other side of the world. For example I know my husbands Google info so I could get on my own device,log into his account,read his mail,check all his activity,including his YouTube history,watch videos,pretty much whatever I want,if I wanted to. And then when he was on his account he would see my activity showing as his activity,since it's his account.

The best thing to do is log out of everything and create a new password.

No, I never have it on & YouTube wasn't open as I was on another app
I think it’s more likely you bumped something in your sleep? Idk I wouldn’t worry

actually Esther

there must have been something valuable of yours
for them to want to steal it

now I took this as a prompt
to go back and look at this stuff from 2013
that they seem to want
actually footage of my breakdown it seems to be
so I need to look at that footage
and put it up again, to prove it was me

I might do a live one sometime
and nobody can do a live video of me
except moi !
I think whoever it was had some weird grudge against someone at my high school cause they did it to a bunch of us who they thought were close friends but we weren’t even all close. So I’m assuming someone from my high school and they honestly did it so cryptically like no one will ever find what they did and link it to me, also they did it like five years after we were out of school. So like... ya really got me pal lol.

I don’t have social media anymore but that’s more because I find it stressful to see what everyone’s up to every millisecond.

Anyway I knew that bc like a friend of a friend of a friend found her hacked stuff in some super obscure corner of the internet and then she found mine. So I saw the actual page the hacker made. If I hadn’t seen the actual evidence, I wouldn’t worry. Odds are people aren’t after you. This happened to me like four years ago and I’m pretty sure collecting some random pictures of me and poorly photoshopping them was about the limit of their expertise lol. Nothing else has happened. It’s good to be cautious but not worth it to live in fear 🥰

@SunnyDaze no I don't share it with anyone, I did make a new password right after I realized that happened
@EstherRose94 i wasn't asleep yet, like I was still on my iPad but just in a different app.
Sorry if this seems like no big deal haha, it's just on top of a lot of other small things it really freaked me out. Hopefully changing my password was all I needed to do

I know some people don't like hearing this or don't want to believe it but all of our devices we use are listening into our lives. That's why many times we can have a conversation with someone and then when we later get on our phone or laptop,whatever,there's ads related to what we were talking about.

I've experienced that so many times. I will talk about getting a pizza, for example,and then my phone is bombarded with pizza advertisements. Or talk about sex and it's dating app ads.

I noticed a few days ago that my Amazon echo dot listens to the tv sometimes. I was watching a movie on TV and saw Alexa light up,listen and then turn off. Ads then were related to the movie that was on.

Even when devices are turned off,if you turn it back on take a look inside you will see that there's been activity. Also even without wifi.

There's many different reasons a YouTube video could have been in your history that you didn't watch. And it is kinda freaky when stuff like that happens.

Idk if they can hear us but they def know what we’ve searched and have algorithms to personalize the ads we see based on that. I just try not to worry too much because again ultimately I guess apple might know my deepest thoughts but like I don’t think anything could be used against me or whatever. I might be more worried if I’d committed a serious crime or something.

k so the guy I was interested in and I
are now just friends
and have barely exchanged any communication at all

and yet the private investigators have been back out for me today
so we are like not allowed to speak to each other at all ? !

I received the following spam outdoors today

" we can move to Mars, we can always go back to Mars "

" what a hassle this is, do you have any pizza ? no ?
your famous pizza with the mushrooms and garlic ? "

that one was in the cafe , a woman with a foreign accent
who looked at me in a very malicious way "

I suspect coming from ' the other guy ' who is my ex
who probably identifies as ' Mars ' , macho Mars perhaps

and how would that work if I felt like I was forced into it ? !

you know and when I was with him
he didnt seem that interested in me actually
and didnt want people to know we were seeing each other

:grouphug: 🕯 🍀

pizza used to mean deeper forms of surveillance
