Why I don't use third party rs clients

I know alot of people won't really care about what is said here, but I've been around on rs for 10 years and was never hacked until shortly before I joined this clan.. this was also when I had a valuable bank and was still using Osbuddy. I am pretty careful online, I don't watch twitch, barely watch youtube and hardly ever click on or use anything I don't recognise/trust. I have a separate unattached email for my rs account, I change passwords every 2 months, I have 2 step authenticator, I use a pin and I don't share my account details.

I don't want people to get offended or argue against this which tends to happen alot when I show people this. This post is just for my own conscience to warn people that its better to be safe than sorry. It is generally safer to stick to standard RS client.

EDIT: The 2 links are specifically about OSBuddy, but I'd say its better to be sceptical about all of the clients.

I also choose to stick to the standard RS client. I have trust issues with osbuddy (because of gh0sts history), and don't feel like i'm missing out on *too* much anyways.

I don't trust osb either, I rely on the rs client. I don't need timers or overheads even though they are useful. I just use my instincts and go with the flow.

One and my only personal rule: I will never trust anyone else to ensure my account will be safe, except for my authenticator, bank pin and most importantly, myself.

I am pretty much a contrarian, but this is my opinion.
