Exclamation How to not get hacked...

I know that there has been quite a lot of hacking going on
This thread is 1st of all a guide
Follow this and you will have an inhackable account.
1. change your password every 3 days. Make it something that uses a random # and letter combination. Just make sure to write it down.
2. Delete friends you don't know well. And don't overfill your friends list.
3. Don't keep many items in your dock. If someone does hack you, they won't think you have good items and they will leave.
4. If you have very valuable items, and you want to keep them somewhere. Keep them hidden. Maybe in a toy chest. Or for the big ones, stick a book shelf in front of it so you can't see it.
5. Don't throw away your webkinz tags. If someone found it and found out your username, they can go to forgot password and change it.
6. Don't give out your password of coarse.
7. Try not to post your username on WI. You might get exess invites for your friends list from strangers or hackers.
8. Don't brag about your items, if people see you have Good items, they willtry to hack you


If anyone has been hacked, share it here, if you need to vent in any way.


Spoiler: show
If you have been hacked out of a real good item, it's ok, not the end of the world. It has happened to me twice.







Edit:
Thanks to T_T I have learned that the @ symbol is allowed in changing your password.

Edit: Thanks to leopardlizard, I have a new trick to find out who hacked you. If it is still in the same day, You can only send a gift once in a day. So send something like almonds to each of your friends and the one who it says you have already sent an item to that person today, that would be the hacker.

Default Re: To hack or not to hack

This is a great thread, but the only person who has ever gotten into my account was my BFFz friend. . . (yeah, don't know how that happened . .. ). So I don't really worry about it. And I don't get on much. So it's ok.

Here is another tip:

Try using the character "@" in your password. Password guessing programs do not use that character.

Very good guide.
My friend got hacked, all of her items missing and she had barely any Kinz Cash. She said she didn't give away anything but... you never know. She is not a member of WI and most of those people aren't perfect with webkinz.
