Very nice! A lot of people are getting hacked right now.. I got hacked last year (August 11th) and I thought i got hacked today because my password wasn't working at first and i was getting a lot of server errors that occurred about every 4 seconds.

One other way to stay protected is try NOT to use your birthday in your username or password. Though it may be easy to remember it is one of the first things people try, if they know your birthday of course

Also make your password long as possible. It's much harder to guess that way, although hackers probably do have special programs to hack.

Your parents, grand-parents, OK they are fine for knowing your password or the nicknames used in them.

Most hacking and stealing of items, sad to say, is done by your friends, siblings, classmates. When logging in a public place, at school or the library, or a friend's house, hide your hands as you type in your password.
Keep your password a secret. Do not share it with your siblings or BFF... for you may have a fight tomorrow.
When having sleep-overs, put away your adoption codes out of sight, and preferably out of the room.

Be very careful of gift webkinz, for if the giver knows the pet code, they can get into your WW account and change the password.

When logging in a new pet, at the adoption agency, there is a big red warning page about keeping your pet code a SECRET. Heed it.

Default Re: Passwords & Secret Codes ~ keep safe!

Thanks for the reminder......I have kept the same password since the internet came into existence......(yes I am That old....haha) But I have worked very hard the last few months and invested quite a bit of money into acquiring items for my account and I was really getting a little nervous....of course I am not going to tell anyone my password.....BUT.....my granddaughter knows it and she is young and kind enough to be fooled into telling it to someone she considers her "BFF"......so your post was just the nudge I needed to finally change it out to something more secure.....

Thanks so much for taking the time to give us all a "heads up"
