Default Some extra tips on how to not get hacked.

Hi!
I have seen many threads on how to not get hacked, but I have some tips that I haven't seen on those threads.

1. Do not put your most valuable items to show in your avatar/signature

That is showing off "Look what I have!" and will make someone want to hack that account more than someone who has a couple of pets.

2. Make a password something you would NEVER say in real life.

For example: You LOVE LOVE LOVE Twilight.
For the password, make it something like "IhateTwilight"
Because if someone you knew tried to hack in, they would try words that are your favorites.

3. Do not show the "valuable" items in your house thread.

This is the same as putting it in your avvie/siggy, but it also tells the hacker which room the "good" stuff is in.

4.Mis-spell words in your password

If you password is "bananas" spell it "bananerz"

5. If you trade on WI, make a seperate account just for trading.

This helps if you keep people on the phone after you finished trading with them.
And also try not to keep very valuable items on the account for long

6. Try to only give your username to people you are trading with/friends.

This does eliminate people you have no idea who they are, or hackers.




Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please post if you have any other suggestions!

I also use an alpha numeral password.
i.e.: 6547webkinz94528

PS: The letter nor number equivalents are equal to my password (:
PSS: That is not my password

Wonderful tips! I agree with januarywebkinz! In your password, have a variety of numbers and letters! At least two numbers...that my "little life rule" for passwords!

Default Re: Some extra tips on how to not get hacked.

yes I've made sure that the account I use to trade on WI is my trader account. I actually started thinking about it later and made this account a trader account and transferred my good stuff between 2 other accounts. That's another tip if you do have multiple accounts make sure to disperse your stuff between them and to never leave your other accounts on your phone. Always delete them after you send stuff over.

Rep for such a good thread! : )

You're totally right on all these tips. But some people can't have a second account..

Thanks a lot for posting - perhaps you got some people out of hot water!
