Someone at work found out my ADP password and revealed it...please read

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 
This is hard for me to post because it seems so unbelievable, and that no one will take it seriously, but this is all completely true what I am about to say.

I don't know what to do. Someone at work found out my password I use to log into my companies website which is through ADP and has all my personal information. The person who knows it, my supervisor, used it in a sentence in such a way that he knew that I knew that's what it was but he didn't reveal it directly.

I have been so sick in my stomach for days knowing that this happened. And I know that he must have had help from somone else. He admitted his son works for ADP so my suspicions are that his son able to crack my password and give it to him.

I have lost so much sleep over this, he knows my password and he made many subliminal snide remarks lately about it.

I went like this. Let's say my password was something like "kill bill 5".
We were having a discussion in the break room one day about doing our benifits online. A worker said "I don't think I want to do anything online because I might not remember my password".

A few seconds went by then my supervisor got a grin on his face and my stomache dropped when he said "then I guess we're going to have to kill bill 5".

At first I thought maybe I was imagining that that's what he said but then I remember he said something else a few days earlier when the same worker said something about hackers and computers. The supervisor then had the same grin when he said "I didn't need a computer."

I have been in shock for many days over this and I don't know what to do! I could go into my manager but
1. I'm afraid he wouldn't believe me
2. I can't be sure that he wasn't implicated in the hacking, and I don't want to go over his head and go directly to HR


I recently registered for paperless direct deposit through my employer around the same time that the comments were made.

I emailed the top level HR of the ADP login site and asked if anyone in management could've able to get ahold of passwords in plaintext. Someone would have had to have access to the passwords to crack them. Figuring out the security code only resets the password, it doesn't reveal them,

I am desperate to know what to do and how to prove this and since so much time went by, few weeks. I reset my security question to something "non sensable" and used a secure password but I can't be sure that this website does not store the passwords in plaintext that would be revealed to anyone.


Help


worried sick. This is why I have been acting so "paranoid" lately. My sense of security had been totally shattered over this.

If I did this to any of the people who work for me, I would expect them to go to HR and file a report. It is extremely unprofessional and potentially very damaging to you. Remember that if you do file a complaint and there is retaliation, you have legal recourse.

you have already contacted ADP, now contact your higher up if there is any reason for suspicion make sure a form of management knows that is able to do something about it, it's not like there going to go to him and say so and so thinks you hacked there password they will investigate it before making any decisions.
Just make sure when you do go higher up not to lay blame, just simply state you have reason to believe another employee has found out information and is spreading it and you fear for your own personal security.

I don't think it would be unreasonable to go directly to HR, but I would probably confront my supervisor first. Maybe he got your password another way that doesn't involve hacking or anything illegal- ie: you wrote it down and he saw it or he overheard a phone conversation, ect. Either way his behavior is unprofessional and you should call him on it.

I had never used any company computer to log in and I would not have wrote it down. It was hacked plain and simple. The supervisor has said that his son works for ADP.

I don't know how I would even word it. I don't know how they would be able to prove anything unless I also got ADP involved since they handle all the payroll.

I am really afraid that too much time went by. The only employee that heard him say it would even remember what he said and she would be called in for questioning and then tell the supervisor, I don't know if I should go the the manager or HR.

This... Change your pwd and be on the lookout to see if he makes any more remarks about the new one in public. If he does; then you got a more solid claim to take to your higher ups/HR.

The obvious course of action is to simply kill your supervisor and his son.
