2. Change password often. (At least once a month is what I do.)

3. Don't leave yourself logged on when you are not actually on the computer. (This one's a biggy.)

4. If you have KinzChatPLUS, give out absolutely NO personal information. No Birthdays, no first names, no States, Nada, Zilch, Zero! (This one's the most important.)

5. Don't play on other people's accounts. (Except for sibling's [With permission], & parent's)

If you do get hacked and don't know what to do...

1. Don't panic. It's just Webkinz. True, what they did was still stealing, but, it could be A LOT worse.

2. List ALL missing KinzCash, items, & anything else that went missing. (VERY important.)

3. Call Ganz. (1-800-Webkinz. They close at 5:00.)

4. Tell them everything that you are missing. You may need to tell them your username and password as well.

5. Change your password IMMEDIATELY after doing this. (You may do this before step 2 as well.)

6. Log Out. You should stay off Webkinz for a little bit. I was hacked on once before and going on my Webkinz account just made me mad.

I hope this helped you some.

Thanks for your post! It is wonderful because you are also telling us what to do in case we get hacked. I know it is horrible, but then we really need to take a right action right away instead of just being panicked. I think the points you have made here are all very important and very useful. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for thanking me!

But, I post messages like that just to help.

There's no need to thank me.

Wow, thank you all so much for all the info about keeping your account safe. There are things I read that I never thought about such as buying on ebay and changing the password regularly. I really, really hope there is no way for someone to hack your account without having your password or any of your codes. We do keep all our codes safe in the same place and my daughter shares her password with NO ONE. Her friends have asked before and she won't tell. I never thought about not playing Webkinz on other's computers or on public ones either. Thank you.

Oh, I know! I never really thought too much about it until it happened to my friend. Everyone who posted here gave us some really good tips and I am so grateful! Anybody else would like to share any great tips?

A long long time ago, I had one instance where, even though nothing really was hacked, I thought that some of my items were missing.
So, I changed my password to an animal, like raccoon, but I spelled it wrong (racoon).
It makes it harder, because even if someone knew my favorite animal was a _____, they wouldnt expect me to spell it wrong.

This is pretty basic, but I would still like to get it out.

Make sure your passoword is eay for you to remember but hard for others to guess.

For example, if your passoword was your name, then people might end up guessing it.
If your password was your middle name (works better if you don't really tell people your middle name with numbers and symbols, then people would have a hard time guessing.

Yes, it is pretty basic, but also it is something very easy and important! I have forgotten my password once because I was trying to come up with something nobody elese would guess. I did write it down but I still missed it, so I had to call GUNZ to log on my account again So it is important that your password should be something easy for you to remember, but very hard for others to guess. Thanks!
