FYI: account hacking happens

She got the emails from EA saying someone had requested a password reset, and then that the password had been changed.
She tried to log into her town and was not able to. She logged into EA and initiated her own password change, then took her town back.
Two days later she got the emails again. Someone was hacking into it again. She contacted EA.
They told her to set up protections requiring a code from a text message to change it again.
So if anyone prefers higher security, you may want to set up this extra authentication now. Particularly if you have your account tied to real money, which she did not.
Idk how to set then up. I'm going to look into it myself now. Hopefully it's obvious on either EA or Origin site
That is really bad Glad there is another option for more security though.
