One or more persons have been using my account to update their information on imdb. This has been going on for quite a while. What to do?

Hi Jennie -

If you are seeing submission updates within your account that you don't re-call submitting, someone has probably used your account to submit data to IMDb.

If you used a public/shared terminal to access the IMDb and did not
logout after you were done, anyone using that same computer after you
may have submitted data using your account.

You should immediately login and change your password. Also, to avoid
this type of problem, remember to logout anytime you leave a
shared/public computer.

The logout link can be found on your registration details page at:
http://www.imdb.com/register/

(look for the 'logout' option in the left-hand side column)

Or go directly to: 
http://www.imdb.com/register/logout
