I have got the message "you have logged in on another location" few times, even when i hadnt logged in on another location! Is someone hacking my account, and how can i see where is the other guy logged in ? I couldnt find more than "log off (my PC name)" Should i be concerned about this ? OR is this some kind of bug ?

Edit: i got the message when i was already logged in, i dont/did use other microsoft products with the liveID, i was idling and suddenly out of nowhere the message came to the tray!

Sounds like your old session isn't loggin off correctly. I wouldn't worry about it, since logging off at one location logs off all locations.

When you open your inbox, you automatically log in there, so this might cause this problem. I don't think anybody is hacking your account; if so, there's no way you can see who's logged in with your account.

@winuser The same thing happened to me when Windows live messenger 2011 came out. I think its a bug from the system. – raym0nd Jul 11 '11 at 20:38

I came late to this question. Based on what you are saying, someone could somehow be logging in as you. I can't think of another reason if you have not left some detail out inadvertently. To answer your sub-question: You can't see where the other login is taking place.

So let's assume that that is actually happening, I can't believe that no one has not said this yet: CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD ASAP. Also change your security question and answer.
