Default Unanswered: Friend Request Help

I received two friend requests today. I don't know who either of the people are. I accepted the first one because we were late getting back home and trying to do the hourly event. My daughter said just accept & you can delete it later if you need to. I was in Firefox on my account and went to open IE to get another one of our accounts going to do the hourly. I do that often & never have issues. All of a sudden IE just kept opening one window after another. I could not get it to stop. I had to go into task manager and it finally allowed me to end the program. I ran all the virus scans but nothing on the system.

I went to log back in to Webkinz and now have another friend request from someone else I do not know. I hate to say no and hurt soemone's feelings, but I dont want a repeat of what happened before.

So the questions I have are:

(1) if I am friends with someone else, can other people that he is friends with see my name and request to be my friend? I'm only friends with my kids and one other person.

(2) My name on Webkinz is not the same as here on so I wonder how would someone get my Webkinz name?

(3) Has anyone else gotten friend requests today from people they do not know?

Thanks for any insights.

Do you have MyPage set up? If so, when people ask to see random pages, they can see yours and have the option of asking to be your friend. If you go to the Club House that can also give them enough information to ask to be your friend sometimes. I have had random requests to be a friend and never had my web browser go nuts on me when I accepted. About every month or so, I will go and clear some of the older ones out who I have not heard from in a while.

1.) No they cannot. Don't worry, your WW ID is safe.

2.) Sometimes people just send out random requests. Trust me, everyone gets them.

3.) No I have not.

Hope I helped you out.

You did help! Thanks.

My daughter set up My Page for me. That's kind of cool.

---------- GPX Navigators added 8 Minutes and 13 Seconds later ----------

ok one more question...how do I find the firend request I didn't accept. I logged out when it popped up without accepting or denying.

Is it gone?

Did you just exit out of the request with the "X" button in the right corner of the request popup? ???
If so, then I think you cannot recieve it again, but I am not 100% sure..
Do you remember their username?

If you want to check who your friends are, turn on your kinzphone and a list of all of the people you are friends with will appear there. You can delete the people you don't know from your phone. If there are no other strange names on the list, then I assume that the friend request you didn't accept won't show up at all.

I bet that the My Page preferences were set to have all people able to view the page. Once you change that setting, you will not get those strange requests anymore
