No problem! We enjoy helping.

If you ever do find that you've been hacked, change the password. ) (That is, if you were ever hacked.) Name a few rooms "My Antique Room" or if they have the option, "My Treasure Room", and put a ton of chests, storage items, and W-Shop items. Space them out and make it look like your REAL storage room for good items. Load the storage items with W-Shop toys, food, and clothes. After the room(s) is full of chests which are all full of W-Shop items, leave the room(s) alone for the most part, every now and then checking the storage objects to see if anything was taken. If you are hacked, the hacker may think that the "My Antique Room"(s) have what they want, and they will probably go there first, and search the storage objects. If your room is filled up with storage furniture, it will take them awhile, and all they will find is W-Shop items. After searching, they may think you've got nothing worth looking for, and leave after wasting their "valuable time". This may or may not work, but some hackers skip to rooms that seem like they have what they want inside. Ofcourse, they do have hackers out there that search the whole house, but it's worth a try. Also, if you try this, make the "My Antique Room" a large room, so you can fit alot of toy boxes, wardrobes, etc. inside.

This is what I've been working on doing. Ofcourse, I have a hard password, but you can never be too safe. Hope this helps.
Great idea! I'm adding that now!

Great thread! Now, about one of your tips, the one about not accepting strange friend requests, couldn't the person just get on to your account and send a FR to themselves and accept it then?

If the request is in the clubhouse, they'd have to know your full username to try to guess the password. But if they know the full username, it's possible they could get in.

I was hacked about 2 years ago, and the person took some exclusives and rares, like the hot-air balloon etc. I think I know who it was though. I did change my password right after that, and luckily I haven't been hacked since. WONDERFUL guide! You guys did a GREAT job!!! Thanks for your help and concern!

Yes, but the strange FR could be one of two things. It could either be your hacker in the act, and you happened to log on while they're sending gifts to themselves, or if you're in the clubhouse or in the tournament arena this could just be them figuring out your full username.

I don't know if comeone has said this already, but you can check the items you have (in your dock or in-room) on MyPage. Just start to create a Favorites or Collection list on the "My Stuff" tab and you will be able to see all of the items you currently have by browsing through the dropdown list! It's very handy and I use it to check "inventory".

I was once hacked by a "friend" who somehow found out my password, but luckily her sister knew hers and I was able to get the items back! (Not very exciting, but worth telling)
