    Have you tried logging in with your email instead of your user name?

    If you have access to phpmyadmin, look in wp_users to find your user name.

    thanks , looks like my passowrd was hacked, but I only got an Wordfence notification email today when I tried logging in.

    I got the following email, which indicates someone in the US logged in.

    A user with username “fdfdfdf” who has administrator access signed in to your WordPress site.
    User IP: 173.227.74.5
    User hostname: 173.227.74.5
    User location: Austin, United States
