Have you ever logged in to Adsense.

and ended up in someone else's account?

It has happened to me once that I know for sure. I logged in to AS with my username and password and wound up in someone else's account.

Back then I would log in constantly to check. Now I use syssense and log in much less... but evey now and then my #*$! pop up bubble shows that i have eg: 198 impressions and 4 clicks whereas 5 mins ago I had thousands of impressions and over 300 clicks. When I refresh it goes away, but I wonder if its the same thing that happens in the background.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Never had. I use this script to login directly and FAST:

<form name="form1" method="post" action="https://www.google.com/adsense/login.do">
<input type="hidden" name="username" value="your_email@your_email.com">
<input type="hidden" name="password" value="your_password">
<input type="hidden" name="destination" value="">
<input type="submit" value="AdSense Login">
</form>

I use a script as well... so it wasn't a fluke typo if that's what your thinking. I logged in with my username and password.

It's only every happened to me when I logged in with one adsense account, logged out and logged back in with another(I help another guy out run his adsense for him). Until I hit refresh, the other accounts data is displayed. Not really a big deal, obviously, since I had to have known that login info to get in in the first place.

Yep, LizardGroupie must fall into category of guys who watch their Adsense account on their bed every morning ;)

Something strange did happen once, I say huge earnings, which were obviously not mine :-( When I refreshed the page, the figures were gone.. I thought I had glimpsed the future! but I guess, it was someone elses' a/c. ;-)
