Great guide =D
I have 2 tips:
-Never giving my username out, ever (Unless I needed too, but maybe PM it or find an alternative)
-Sometimes having a simple password is good, sometimes people over think in passwords, but then again, you may want this as a temporary password
Thanks a whole lot for putting this all together, I may want to try the tips in your guide

This guide is fantastic!

It is very helpful and will hopefully prevent hacks. What I usually do is spread my items out in rooms that have weird names and stuff. For example, in my bedroom i could have a pet fridge or something. This way the hacker will go in rooms specifically looking for something and such.
Also: If you want to keep clothes safe, Use the clothing categories. When you go to dress your pet, click on Causal and put clothes on. Or go to Fancy, swimwear etc. When you leave make sure they are on an option with nothing valuable on them.

Thanks for posting! I'm adding the clothing idea now!

This is a great thread! Thank you so much! But I think I was hacked, because I had a blue tee-shirt with the bad fairy on it, and it disapeared. Then, later that month, my Rose Party Dress disapeared, and I though I must've traded it for something, but I didn't think it over (I didn't have any kinz style in my dock that I didn't have before, and I never trade my kinz style for anything but kinz style) and I've changed my password, and nothing's disapeared since.

And I've got a tip for passwords: make your password a bunch of words that have nothing to do with each other, and also put numbers. Like you could have you password be "LeAf98ShOES!@#" Then the hacker would have some trouble getting the right words, then they would have to find out what the numbers were, then they would have to find out which letters were in caps, then they would have to put it all in the right order. And you could change your password every week, then by the time they got your password, then you might have changed it by then!

I have another tip for spreading out your valuable items----
-If you have multipul accounts, use this to your advantage. KinzPost one or two of your valuables to each account each night, then send them back to your main in the morning or when you get on, and back again, etc. It may be a lot of extra work, but this way your hacker would have to get your password and username to not one, but maybe two or even three.
So, let's say you have Wacky Jeans and an Orange army. Kinz Post it to an account that about no one is on your friend's list, therefore being able to have access, but your hacker doesn't.
