    Hello, I create an account years back and forgotten it. Now, it was hacked and it’s currently being used by someone, and that person is using the said VK account to gain access to my Mobile Legends game. I am unable to disconnect this account from the game because it is requiring me to log in (to VK) to be able to disconnect it. I already posted a question to VK (as per this article) stating my predicament. I have yet to receive any updates from them. Any advise on how I should proceed?

    Hi Konstantin! I’ve got a question and I’m not sure if you can answer, but it’s worth a shot. What happens to the photo of your ID you send to VK? Do they keep it on file? I’m always concerned about privacy, so I figured I should ask. I had to send a photo of my ID because someone made a fake profile of me (why someone did, I will never understand).

    Thanks in advance!
