Talking Security Question to stop hacking on WW.

So lots of people get hacked and lose a lot of their precious items on WW, right? I mean, I got a whole account with over 70 webkinz and lots of items, and then it was hacked. This is just an idea on how to stop it. I apologize if their is already something like it.

The Problem:
Hackers come snooping to find accounts with a little machine they have. Or they can just try with all the info they have on that person, for example: likes, favorite numbers or numbers that are important to them, etc.

The Solution:
Well when you log into webkinz it will pop up a screen saying a question, and you have to answer it in order to log-in. Now there will be a choice if you want to do this or not, so if you don't, then you can just decide not to. There will be a little button on the log in screen saying "Log-in option".

So if you do choose to click the option, you get to make a question, and have an answer only YOU should know, just like a code ;] After you set -t up, every time you log-in it should pop up for you or the hacker.

NOTE: The question should always be hard to figure out, such as "What happened in the 4th grade?" And then you add an answer in their. There are a billion answers for that question, and only you should no it, like I said above xD

Remember, if you don't like the idea, you never have to click the option, you can just keep it off.

Thanks everyone for reading, and remember to let me know if you like it by commenting ;]

I have edited your title to reflect contents.

Excellent idea Price, I agree. I haven't had anything hacked out of my dock but someone (not me) spent my wish tokens and I still don't know what I, or they, bought!

Most of the disappearing priceless items from your accounts are not taken by hackers, but by people you know: siblings, cousins, best or not-so-best friends, ex-BFF's...

If someone gives you a pet code, they can then go to your account, change the pasword and take your items. This might happen with a friend who gives you a pet for a birthday gift, and somehow peeks into the plastic envelope and reads the secret pet code.

If this happens, phone Ganz! 1-866-932-5469; if you are under 18, get a parent to phone. If your missing item was kinzposted out of your account, the service rep will give you the name of the account where it went. Then you will have a good idea of your thief's identity.

Sadly it's often someone you know...
