I don't cheat on Neopets but I have a few questions.
I haven't cheated since Atmos, and my accounts have always been legit since. My question is about the cracking, how are you able to acquire the accounts, were they easily guessed passwords? Did they get cookie grabbed? Did they go somewhere offsite of Neopets to get their information stolen? Not that I'm extremely wealthy or popular, I always wonder if/when my accounts will be stolen from someone here or something. I'm not anti cheating, I'm never on a computer to actually run a program and why start now when I spent years building on an account?
There's pretty much nothing you can do to 100% prevent your account being stolen.
Good starting points are:
-Not to enter your information elsewhere or visit dodgy sites
-Change your password, pin and e-mail regularly
-Don't use the same password for multiple things/sites/accounts/emails
Nobody quite knows (apart from those doing it) how most accounts details are obtained, but ensuring you do the above will at least reduce the risk a little...
And P.S. cheating is much much more fun.

Also Demo can get into your account no matter what, if he feels like it.
There are many different ways to get into accounts. Best thing to do is change your pw everyday and remember to update your email.
Also pray that the elite hacker like joe and demo aren't targeting you.
There's one good way but I doubt anyone will like it.
Make your account look like a shell so no one will want it lol.
P.S. Hi Shicibukai!
Nah there is nothing. I've had people come to me for years asking how their account ended up on my account lists for sale and I've told them it's not under my control. What people have posted above will help, but is definitely not a sure way of keeping your accounts safe.
