Smile [SOLVED] Steps to keep your Webkinz account secure from hackers.

Thank you, everybody for all of the wonderful comments you've posted. At the end of Saturday, I am going to close this thread.

So, we've all heard the warning to "never share your secret code", (especially you collectors because you visit Mrs. Birdy often and get the code speech) however, it's actually very important because, to a hacker that's even better than your password. You can change your password but, not your code. And as bonus points he/she (the hacker) can also change your password.


Ideas to keeping your code(s) safe

A) Put all of your codes in the same spot. Mine are in a Ziploc bag. (Well, my little sister's are in there too but, you don't have to share the bag with a sibling if you don't want too.)
B) Now, hide your codes in somewhere easily accessible to you, and nobody else. I would suggest in your dresser. (Weird enough to remember it's there, yet nobody else has access to it. Well, maybe your mom if she puts away your clothes but, she wouldn't touch it.) If you only have a couple of codes, you could put them under your mattress.

Choosing a password

If your password is something simple like six spaces or "I<3Webkinz", that's the kind of password a hacker expects/hopes that you have. Here are some password ideas.
A) Use numbers. 2+ numbers is recommended. You could use your birth date minus the first two numbers (If you were born in 1996, 1996 - the 19 = 96) and your pet's
(your real pet's or first Webkinz') name. (96redchief ~ not my real password) So, you were born in, say, 1998 and your cat's name was Dash. Your password might be 98dash or, dash98.
B) Let's suppose you don't want to do idea A. Another idea is to use your Zip Code for the numbers, and your Webkinz Insider user name for the letters. Say your zip code was 12345 and your W.I. user name was RedChief. Your password might be 123456redchief. Yeah, that's long but, it could keep your rares safe.
C) Okay, you don't want to do suggestion A or B. Your numbers could be the number of Webkinz you have. (If you have less than 10 'kinz, like me, put a 0 in front of it. (Number of Webkinz = 4 so, 04) The letters could be the name of your first Webkinz. (04blue)
Just so everybody knows, these are example passwords. They are not really my real passwords. I would never do post my real password.

~I will post more tips in my next post~
Feel free to post if you have questions or comments.

great ideas! You might also try to put your name in there because hackers aren't always people you know.
