    Just another reminder: PIN your accounts

    There's been a lot of actives being taken lately, raided and the items stolen off the account.

    The PIN lists we have on ck are from a specific period of time in the past. Basically, if the PIN is a new one, it's not on that list.

    If you have an active account/main, please go create a PIN. It takes only a little bit of time and could save your shit in the future.

    I know other people have said this but with the increase in account raids following TNT taking the captchas away, I thought a reminder was in order

    Additionally, make sure that if you aren't going to put a pin n everything, you at least have email change pinned. I find accounts all the time that aren't on the pin list, but I'm able to change the email and easily recover the pin that way.

    That's actually a really good point. Plus on the lowkey I had never thought about that as an opportunity to access those pinned accounts!

    most of them are pinned on everything, the few accounts I've seen like that literally just have the pets pinned because they are uc

    Someone was trying to get into my account lol so I'm pretty sure the pin is what stopped them. Add pins guys!


    Also thanks to hotmail for noting a suspicious login and temporarily blocking access to my e-mail

    That's really shitty that someone would access your email just for neopets. :/ I'll rather not get my email hacked just because someone wants my pixels. x_x

    Thanks for the reminder... I completely forgot to set it up again after regaining access to my acount..

    In addition, why not use a strong password generated by a service like lastpass to really avoid getting cracked by brute forcing?
