Well, I called my friend and gave all the tips I got from everyone here. She is still pretty upset but she is also grateful for all your help. She is going to start collecting and decorating again and hopefully her little daughter will decide to play on WW again!

1.Never ever give away your password.
2.Change your password every week or so.
3.keep all your webkinz pet secret codes in a safe place.
4.If you have your password written down some where make sure it is hidden where you can find it and no one else

Thank you for sharing your ideas. I especially agree with #4. Even if it is in your house, you still have to be careful about wher in the house you place it.

I noticed that everyone missed another common password helper. Use lower case and upper case letters. Not just Upper case with the first letter but upPeRcasE ramdonly. Also include numbers ramdonmy in it mix. Like u2pPeR6cas3E. Webkinz log in is case sensitive.

I keep all my tags in a small LOCKED box. It is not in my kids bedroom and it is not in the room that my computer is. All it takes is someone to get their hands on one of your codes and you can have problems.

Even in the store you can get a viewed tag. Make sure that the little plastic tabs are BOTH there and not cut. It the plastic is cut, someone can slip off the blue ribbon, write down the code, and put it back on. In this case, I would also alert the store to it so they can watch them closer.

It is a shame there are people like that out in this world!!! I couldn't cheat or steal from someone even if they were a stranger. It is really sick when it is someone that you know does this to you!!!

Thanks for the post! Your idea of using both upper case amd lower case for your possword sounds really great. I never thought of that! I am writing it down on my list! Thanks again for sharing a wonderful idea with us!

I would try to make sure it's not the same thing as your username. Like if your username is something like "super2star8" I would try not to make your password something like "super3star9" or something. Or you could take some very random like "doggie" and add random things like "* ! @ 85 $ 6 ^ 9 ( )." So it could be something like "do85g!g6i7e"
