Console access automatically logs in into username?

I tried to access my droplet using the “console access” in the droplet settings under “Access”, and it was already logged in to my “username” which is protected by a password.
Is that normal? is seems pretty odd, and never happened before.

By logged in you meant you could type and run commands? If yes, so someone else has the password cause NO ONE except the DO staff can login via the console. Try changing the password and start investigate the login and command execution history using history and last commands.
