So I noticed that you guys can get into and sell actively running accounts, with the original owner unawares.
I can't help but be worried for the safety of my own main and sides- they're not exactly loaded, but, you know. LOL
I was wondering as to how I can protect myself from you guys (lol) if you can really get into any account even with a little time and effort.
Thanks! Can I get someone to buy Premium for me in exchange for in-game items, or is that not really in demand? xD
You might find someone interested. Make a thread in the trading section. You possibly will have to overpay in items but still. Worth a shot @Mint
Probably common sense, but make sure the email you attach to your Neo account doesn't become unreg.
And don't tell your main or any account you value, to anyone offsite (even here), unless necessary.
Not targeting anyone on cK specifically, but for instance, if you buy a SuAP and the seller knows where it's gone, they could stake you out until you become inactive, then swipe it back (if they have the means) for a second sell. After all, the motto at cK is, "Hack or be hacked."
@Mod is correct, but it's more likely (however, still unlikely at all really) that someone might hack clraik and get a list of every one's usernames and passwords, and then, say if I'm the hacker and I think Infamous Joe is munsterpoo or he's said in a PM he is, I can test his ck password to see if it lines up with his neopets account one. If it does, bang.
Also, premium doesn't help you stay safer, it just makes it easier to get back. And if you're account isn't worth more than 15 dollars, then a PIN virtually ensures your safety.
Most important thing is to never, ever, ever type your password into anything that isn't the neopets.com login page.
Don't listen to what they said.
There's nothing people can do by just knowing your username unless they have access to databases, but if they have, they'll target loaded accounts and unactive, not an active account with less than 100M
Premium helps to stay safer because most of users here fear to premium users LOL
Also if you're hacked, you'll get your stuff back within 3 days. Personal experience.
And yeah, don't use your neopets password elsewhere. And don't answer to questions like "Where are you from?", "What was your first pet?", "Who is the person you most admire?" not even to your friends
