I got an cheater alert for afk

So last night i was playing online and then I got tired so I decided to go to bed and fall asleep. But I forgot to turn off my console so I was still in the session afk. Once I woke up I got the “you have been kicked for idling” alert and after I confirmed it... it brought me to the cheater alert screen. But I didn’t do nothing bad at all not glitches or nothing. Is it possible I got the screen for being AFK the whole night? Please if anyone has had this problem before tell me so I know I’m not the only one

It's a seemingly random alert - unless you've been doing something against Rockstar's Terms of Service (knowingly or not) it's not something to worry about. 

 

Being AFK (or in any public lobby for an extended period of time) does open you up to potential 'attacks' from glitchers / script-kiddies who could mess with your character / stats / whatever, so just be careful. However, you've said that you're on console, so those sort of events are less likely (but not unheard of) than if you were on PC.

Ok thank you. So next time do I just turn off my console?

Apologies for the late response - time zones! 

 

It's always best to exit the online session (either returning to single player first or closing the application, provided that the 'cloud save' is working properly) rather than leaving your console on and getting auto-kicked. That way you know where you are the next time you log in - hopefully without any other unsettling alerts or surprises.
