It's not a Tapatalk issue.

Was a sitewide problem with logins as a result of some backend issues.

Should all be resolved now.

Same here. Locked out all day. Got a notification email with the IP address trying to login on my name. Tracking came up as a private IP that wouldn't give a location.

OK, now I feel better. Luckily I wasn't locked out. That would've freaked me out even more.
