Secure your account.

Post by Zvny on Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:38 am

Hello all!
These past few weeks I've seen a couple of clannies coming in the cc saying they got hi-jacked.

I will provide a few tips to reduce / make it almost impossible.

1. Make a diffrent email for your Runescape account.
2. Put an Authenticator on that email.
3. Use a password that you've never used anywhere else.
4. Authenticator on your Runescape account itself.
5. Bank pin on your Runescape account.
*bonus* Since last update doing these steps (4,5) will give you 16 more bank spaces! Even more incentive.

Now this will almost make your account hack proof, only real way would be to get hacked now would be through downloaded malware or a phishing site.

For the phishing site, if it seems to good to be true such as "2x xp for osrs this weekend!affraid " Think twice, confirm on the main runescape site.
Don't want to sound harsh but think twice when entering your personal details anywhere.

If anyone else has some additional tips let me know but these are the basic tips that will make your account almost not accesable by thirdparties.

Goodluck and happy scaping! bounce

Maybe sticky it? or how do stickies work on here.

Yes get the authenticator !! I think it makes it pretty much impossible to log in anywhere else other than your pc.

Yes! But be sure to also authenticate your e-mail since there is no delay in removing the RS account auth.
