Blogger busted...

Today I had the shock of my life when I tried to log into Blogger to put up a new post. When I typed in my user name & password to blogger login page, the blogger dashboard looked bit weird. To my shock there was only one blog (rather than the 3, of which 2 are for testing purposes), & it's name also appeared to be so long Adventures of Scotty White. Then only I saw that the user's email address is different from my one. It was some c*****.s**********@gmail.com (see images below). In this account, I could do some things like put up a new post, change blogger layout, etc, etc. But it asked for user name & password again, when I tried to change important settings like changeling profile info, etc.
Well first I was bit excited to get to somebody else's account by chance, but when I got to know that repeated attempts at logging in to my account took me to this same account, which belonged to somebody else, I was bit shocked.
Well may be it's my destiny to start writing this Scotty's adventure...
Finally I managed to log into my blogger account, but when I typed in the URL to see the Scotty's blog (the other blog I was logged into by mistake), it still appeared as if the author of that other blog has logged in (see 3rd image below), rather than showing my email address.
I wonder how much our accounts at Google are secure. For it being a free service we can not expect more. And also I wonder whether any body else went through this same experience.


  1. Were you logginh in from a shared computer?

  2. No, I was using my home PC. It seems the name of the other person who's account, which by mistake that I had access to, was also from Sri Lanka. I am using Firefox.

  3. Pran, bad form mate. When I logged in to my account, I got your dashboard. I've tried everything, but it doesn't work. Both my blogger accounts are pointing to your dashboard. I've sent you an email...

    How did you manage to access your account? Mine's still going to yours...

  4. Hey scourge,
    Welcome aboard mate. As U cant log into Ur dashboard, lets do some postings here.
    Got Ur email. In case U didn't see it, clear your browser cache & login again. It worked for me.
    I tried switching browser too. But Firefox was faster & it logged in before IE loaded the login page.
    Hope it will resolve the problem. If it does pls email me.
