Hello! I have been on my pc for 4 hrs today and about 1 hr was on reddit. I just got on my phone and found out that I had joined a subreddit wich looks shady and seems like spam.

No idea what this is. I am concerned I am backdoored. There is no way I joined in accident since I've never seen this subreddit.

I doubt so. What you can do now is to unjoin the subreddit, change your Reddit's password to using a stronger one -- use a password generator, log out and back in from Reddit from your phone. I'd strongly suggest you to use a Password Manager. Check out providers like LassPass, or Dashlane.

Alright thanks. I'm actually waiting to see if something suspicious happens on the acc again so I haven't changed yet.

If you are ever in doubt, please don't hesitate to take actions. There is a chance that it's nothing and nothing happens, but on the contrary, you'd lose access to your account(s) even before you know it. That is an inconvenience you don't need to have. So, take action soon as you can is my strongest suggestion!
