Call handling rules changed on their own

I was experiencing some strange call behavior. Calls to my main extension were going to other phone numbers which I had used in the past. Turns out that ALL of my old forwarding numbers, which were toggled off in Call Handling, had been toggled back on. Calls to my RC extension where ringing all ten of the numbers in my ring group. I still use those other forwarding rules from time to time but I had NOT toggled them on. This was something which RingCentral did. In talking with another company which uses RC, they experienced the SAME problem within the past few weeks where all numbers in their ring group were inexplicably toggled on.

Since I don't see any similar kind of answer here with same experience with issue or any solution, you can directly check with support team here and they can say if something was changed from RC side and help you to resolve the issue

I spent some time with Support and they saw no problems on the RingCentral end. The system changed all of my settings and the Audit Trail shows me making the changes. But I didn't. And the many changes all happened in one minute according to the log; no way I could have made all those changes that fast. Also I know two other RC users who had all of their forwarding rules changed around the same timeframe. They did not make the changes. After spending time with Support, all they recommended was to change my password and security question. No other explanation given. The issue is resolved, I fixed my settings myself. But there is no explanation for how the changes happened in the first place. I have no confidence that this won't happen again so I worry about customers reaching me properly. It's sad, annoying and may drive me to leave RingCentral. My business is just one of a network of about 75 companies which mostly use RC. Maybe we'll all leave.
