: Umm, recently there was a surge of 3rd party usage bans. To everyone that got a ban, the response was: ''Does anyone have your password?'', ''Did you log in on any devices other than your own?'' and ''Do you, if you've ever used it, have the program used for skin changing still installed on your pc?''. The catch with the first question is; account sharing is the first thing that's against ToU and also the other person could've used 3rd party apps while playing on your account. The catch with the second one is; if you've logged in from elsewhere, your account might've been compromised. It is possible that a) the PC could've had 3rd party software installed without you knowing it and b) someone might've installed keyloggers installed and stolen your account credentials and used 3rd party software while playing on it. And last, but not the least, even though you might not be using anything, if the program is running while playing; it might interfere with packages you're sending to the Riot servers and it triggers a positive in the detection system. Otherwise, a lot of people are complaining to this surge of bans saying that they haven't used anything. Whether it's true or not, you'll have to sort it out with the Riot Support Staff by writing a ticket [here](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us) . Good luck
My friend know my password but they wouldnt play on my account, even less use any kind of 3rd party software that could get me banned (the reason they know my password is just in case one of use passes away, the others can retain the account and do what they want with it, stupid friends stuff xD) Regarding the skin changing program, no, dont have it anymore, used it over 3 years ago and it was on a different computer. Im very paranoid when it comes to security so i make sure my pc is safe at all times, pretty sure no one got hold of my credentials (at least someone that i didnt want to have my credentials) Already opened a ticket but just wanted to know what else i could try. Knowing there actually was a problem is actually reassuring, im certain i was banned unintentionaly and riot should be able to help me then. Thank you for the answer.

: 3rd party programs can be: Skin changers, scripts, bots, hud changers and basically ANYTHING interacting with League of Legends in any way.
Of the things you described, the only one i used was a skin changer and i used it about 3 years ago. Couldnt possibly be that i would think. Could it ...?
