            You need to go to your e-mail associated with your account
            and check your new messages. You'll have an e-mail
            that will contain a link you need to click to activate
            the IP verification feature. Click it and you're set.

            Yup, and be sure to save their address as a "Safe Sender"
            as that is the e-mail address is the one that also
            sends the notification e-mails if another IP address
            is being used to sign into your account.

Just click the question that best fits your situation and you will be taken to a post answering the question. It is as easy as that!


Important Tip:
If you do accidentally give out your password, try and change your password right away!
If you wait too long, the hacker will change your password and you won't be able to sign back into your account.

It sounds like you ran into the common 63556 Private Messages glitch.
It usually occurs when someone sends you a private message,
then before you read it, the user deletes it from their outbox.
This results in your account thinking that you have a PM,
but displays an incredulously large number, and when clicked,
it shows your inbox, but no new messages.
It is a harmless glitch and in no way can get you hacked.
Weren't you featured yesterday, or the other day?
If so, most messages are probably from people congratulating you.
Just don't reply to any messages if they ask for your password
and if you see any suspicious links, don't click them.
Read the rest of my thread to know what to look out for
and how to recognize any attempts at stealing your account.

If you just view and read them, then no, you won't get hacked.
If you get a pop-up asking for a username and password from one,
do not fill it in, as no pop-ups should require you to log in.

The only time I've had a bunch of unread PMs in my inbox
was when I was featured on the homepage for a day and a half.
I haven't really had a bunch of PMs at once since then,
aside from the valentines events.
