    Who's blaming you? What information do they have? Perhaps someone is connecting to these websites through your wireless network? Have you changed your WPA pre-shared key? You are using WPA-PSK with a strong passphrase for encryption, right?

    What environment is there! How did the person know that you are a wrongdoer! Are you connected through wifi or something other. Please provide more details for getting good replies.

    Thanks for your replies. I do not know what supposedly evidence the accuser has. All I know is that he is claiming that my IP address or my computer or my phone was used to post these things online. I know that I did not do them. So is it possible that someone got my IP address or somehow Mimicked my computer and/or phone to impersonate me and make these posts? I would say I have very basic security, nothing other than out of the box stuff.

    Is your accuser anyone in authority? If so, he should be backing up his claims with some sort of evidence that leads to this accusation. If these is nothing to back this allegation up, this might be a case of slander.

    I would recommend changing your Wifi password immediately....but if all you have is a crackpot accusation, it might not even be a concern. Good luck

    As you have a basic security and you did not know how did he accuse you, did he produce any evidence before accusing you? Have you noticed any abnormal behavior with your phone/PC/laptop? Assuming you are not so comfortable with these stuffs, better contact an expert to check your PC/laptops/phone (although chances are very few regarding mobile) and make sure is the any abnormalities.

    Other than someone accusing you, one thing that you may want to look at is your wireless router. Is it locked down, did you change the username, and does it have a nice long password?  I ask this because someone, maybe a neighbor, has possibly hacked your wireless system and is using your IP address to make these postings.  I am just bringing this up as a possibility.

    Change your Wi-Fi password and increase the security level if you haven't already. Then ask the accuser for proof. Let us know what they are providing for evidence. If it's just a name, then anyone could pretend to be you and set up a bogus account and post.
