#1

I am getting these notifications what is that

Hi Webx786 its time to change your password

Find attachment


#2

Hi, It’s a spam. I’ve also received this message. But “fiverr99”!!!


#3

It’s totally fake.


#4

Don’t change your password through that link!!!


#5

My girlfriend received the same message under notification bar! How can this be possible?
Fortunately, I changed the password again from the Account Actions section.

This is serious-


#6

OMG. I did not know that that link was spam and I tried to change it but I couldn’t because of my security question.

I already contact CS about this problem as now I can’t change it at all.
Do you think my account will be blocked/ stolen?


#7

Same here, but what about those people who have logged in via gmail account


#8

Hi,
I’ve got the notice. Please Do not change your password because it is not FIVERR link.This link to “fiverr99”.When you will change password then Your Profile Can be hack.

I’ve got answer from CS:
“Hi there,

Thank you for your understanding.”

Same here. Tried to change the pw via this link and now can’t change my password at all! What the hell! How can fiverr let this happen, fiver99 is obviously not their adress and probably has nothing to do with them! What now?

Thank you for your understanding.


#12

I got same message in my notification.


#13

Your account will not be blocked or stolen, however if you typed your old or new password in the two boxes then they now know these two passwords. Contact CS and change your password to a newer one, a password that you didn’t use in the boxes, and you will be safe enough, hopefully!


#14

i also received and then entered the password in that notification.and then i got to fiverr.com and from account actions i changed the password.is this okay


#15

The domain is still coming from .fiverr.com though. So my guess is that it is Legit! It just seems kinda weird how they put it in a pop up that looks like classic 1999 spam.lol For some reason I just really don’t think someone hacked the site to this extent. If so there are some MAJOR security problems with the site.


#16

Thank you for the update!
I’m glad that it was a test as opposed to a security leak, but it really makes me question who’s running this place :slight_smile:

The forum is constantly broken, features are implemented without a proper notice and now this. How many people got this message and how many read this forum? I bet they also saw a spike in CS volume.

Hopefully Fiverr learned something from this.

I just got an answer that it is a new feature that they are testing and here is the reply from CS:
“Hi there,
Thank you for contacting us. This was a test feature which is legitimate and there is nothing to worry about. The notification you received is an error and we’re working on a change. In 3 hours, you will be able to proceed to reset the password via the new notification.

This link belongs to fiverr subdomain - fiver99.fiverr.com


#19

I had received this notification all day long. I contacted CS. I hope things will be OK. I didn’t change it. I thought something was not OK because I never received such a notification.

It will be great if The Fiverr Team would write a message on the Forum every time they do modifications. Just like they did regarding promoting the gigs.

Thank you! I will update my message after I will receive the answer from CS

Yes, It is not fake, It was from Fiverr, Look at the url, the final url had the domain name fiverr69.fiverr.com that means that page is a subdomain of fiverr, also some of my friend asked fiverr and they said this, : http://prntscr.com/dfmxv7
