Can you help me understand how referrals work?

New member | Level 1

My friend shared with me a folder of photos. So I tried to download all of the, but because it's over 1gb, i have to get the desktop application. 

So I clicked download all as zip, while on the pop up asking me to create a new account I created a new account and downloaded the desktop program. 

Now I got an email saying I've accepted someone's invitation, but I didn't click on any invitation link to accept. Does signing up via someone's photo means i'm accepting their invitation?

 

Thanks

Yes.

It also gains you more space.

I have also received more space because I've allegedly accepted an invitation from someone that I have never heard about before - but I have not accepted any invitation. 

What is the meaning of this?

It likely means that someone spammed a bunch of referral invites at one time in the hopes that the people they referred would sign up. You were probably one of them, and you eventually signed up, so you both earned 500MB of space. Nothing to worry about. They don't have access to your account and they can't see any of your files. Just enjoy the free space and forget about it.
