Hey world: Don’t leave yourself logged in to a display product at Best Buy! One Consumerist reader found someone logged in to a display iPad at Best Buy and emailed them and us from the logged in account.
Reader R says:
You should have receive an email from [redacted] about not logging out of mail account on display product at Best Buy.
I was the person that sent it to him and you. Just wanted to validate that email for you. I also didn’t want any of my personal info sent through that email.
I really couldn’t believe someone did that.
Sure enough, here’s the email:
To whom it may concern:
You decided to try out an iPad at your local best buy. But guess what? You logged into the mail app on a publicly used test product and didn’t log out?!?!?!?
This time a good citizen has decided to alert you of your mistake. I will also be kind and log you out Be aware and use some common sense the next time.
Sent from your own email,
