I recently saw a thread about someone getting their account hacked... First of all, it is rude, and if you are a hacker...stop! I think if my account got hacked I would die. I have 135 webkinz! I have earned so much, and spent so much REAL LIFE money on webkinz! And here are some guidelines to a hackfree world.
First thing is First: Clean out your friends list. If you are trading on the WIGE program, then you will need to keep those people on your friends list. But once the trade is over, I would definitely just delete them from your list. -not because you aren't friends, just because it does take up space. The only people that should be on your list are your friends in real life that play on webkinz world a lot and wouldn't betray you. I only have my brother and my grandmother on my list...If you get hacked and you just have a few usernames on your list, then the ones that you don't know, you can report to Ganz! But if you have a ton of usernames on your list before the hacking happens, then you can't even see who it might have been!! Plus, with less usernames webkinz world loads faster and it is easier to find who you are inviting over!!
Next thing is Next: Don't ever, ever, EVER give out your password. Don't give it to your friends, even the best of your friends! (But if you are sharing an account...don't keep the password to yourself!) The thing is, if someone is big into webkinz world, they might go on your account and send something to themselves through kinzpost. At first it might just be a piece of expensive furniture from the W-shop...then it will turn into buying a really expensive thing from Arte, or maybe sending some exclusives of yours to themself! Trust me, it is happened has happened to me from one of my best friends. *remember to keep track of the money you have so if someone does hack you know right away*
Rude & Bragging: Don't be rude online. That just makes people want to get revenge and take things of yours. If you are nice all the time, they might actually be nice to you and send exlusives to you! If you brag to people, that will make people want whatever you have, and some people do anything to get rares, retired things, etc.
Last thing is Last: Don't hack. People earn their things. I have spent well over $1000 of my real life, well earned money on webkinz pets. How do you think I would feel if all of that was taken away? Think of other people...I really love webkinz, and people who join webkinz-insider probably love webkinz too. So don't do it! Another thing is, what if your parents caught you? Would you like to get in trouble? Or maybe from the police? Yes, you can get in serious trouble for hacking websites, especially Webkinz!
If you follow the rules on my guide, I am sure that nothing bad will happen. Rembember to have a safe, secure password with:
*10 digits at least *Numbers would be hard to guess, there are millions of combinations! *A random word like Taco, Peacan, Scissors, or Window. -not something like "Joe Jonas" *Include at least one capital letter. *Make sure it is easy for you to remember, but hard for other's to guess *If you write it down, put it somewhere where you will remember, but nobody else can find...like underneath your computer, or behind a picture in a picture frame.
*I would suggest not having so many webkinz on 1 account...I wish I had 3 or so with as many as I have. It will load faster, you will get to do an activity more than once, and if you get hacked only 1 of your accounts will get hacked.
PS: If you want to download hacking "gear" it can seriously damage your computer. It won't just harm the person you are hacking, but also yourself. I learned this from my brother!
