Angry Unanswered: How are they doing this?

I know so many people that have NEVER given away a password to anyone, and they are still getting hacked! How are people hacking into other user's accounts? It's absolutely terrible! They loose all their items and their KinzCash! I feel so bad, but there's nothing you can do. How can I prevent this?

make sure you keep all your codes safe and keep your password long and hard other then that don't share your username.

I would tell GANZ. Tell them that there is programs out there that can get your password. They will figure something out. Tell them, and good luck!

Is there any way someone could have discovered one of their webkinz codes? You need the username plus either a password or webkinz code to hack into an account.

Anyone who suspects they have been hacked should immediately change their password to one that contains both letters and numbers.

If you log onto webkinz anywhere other people can see you (like in the library) you can have your password stolen.

To prevent hacking:

Make sure no one can find one of your codes and use a letter/number password that you change every time you log into webkinz when someone else might see you (or just change once a week to be sure) and keep your kinzphone clear of anyone but good friends.

Make sure you have lots of numbers and letters in your password. NEVER share it with other people.Also, change your password every moth for safety.Make sure you know EVERYONE on your friends phone and check it weekly.

Do not download ANYTHING without parental permission because it could download a thing that tracks what you're typing. I guess like each key has a certain sound and they can find out what you wrote for your password. Also there are things that can like tape everything that you do and I guess this could help them hack. Just be very secretive of your password and be careful of all pop-ups/downloads. Remember: Be safe.

You could change it into something crazy that you could only think of and then if people still get in your account then contact GANZ. Sometimes you may think some one got onto your account but it may just be a glitch

Is your computer secure? Are you on a wireless network? People can hack into your computer through your wireless network if your information is not encrypted. Someone can even just drive by your house and connect to your personal computer. They can watch what you are doing and see your keystrokes. From there they can get user names and passwords.
