-TIPS to Prevent HACKING-

Tips to PREVENT Hacking

Hey there,
there's been a lot about hacking and its shocking to think that 4/5(not sure) people have been hacked:O

So i thought maybe some tips may help to combat this. They may be useful or not if you don't know them but yeah i do hope that they help!c:

Tips:

1.Always make sure your password is long and contains numbers,symbols,capital letters and uncapitalised letters. Usually long and complicated passwords make it harder for a hacker to hack into your account and most of the time people are hacked due to having an easy password.

For example:

Bad password:Kittens2
Good Password:PurpleKITTENS921


I know that on some sites you can't have symbols in your password so numbers work really well as well as lower and upper case letters(lower:l,Upper:L)

2.Never share your password-Some people may share their passwords which immediatly increases the risk of being hacked. NEVER SHARE YOUR PASSWORD WITH SOMEONE YOU DON'T KNOW FULLY.Even if you know them well from a site, there's nothing that stops them from being a hacker in real life.

3.Don't have the same password for a numerous amount of accounts. From what i've heard quite a few people have the same password for their email account,bv etc. This is a really silly thing to do. If they can hack your email or bv account then they can use that password to hack into accounts for other sites that you may use.


4.Don't share accounts. Some people do share accounts on here and that is fine-only if you know the person really really well! I wouldn't recommend sharing accounts though as the other person still has the oppurtunity to use your details(for email) or steal your items(for bv).


5.BEARVILLE SPECIFICALLY.Add people you know well to your friends list and not complete strangers. Yeah they may seem nice but until you know them super well don't add them.

6. Make a side accountI know its long and tiresome but its really worth it in the end! if your ever hacked, its good to have a 2nd account to transfer the rest of the items onto. Make sure that you side account has a completely different name to your main account.

7.Don't show off your items-that sounds really bad the way i've put it but once a hacker knows what items you have there is an increased risk that they may hack you. Most hackers are usually out for your items and by showing them off it practically motivates them to take your items.I know people wear rare on babv and that's completely fine just don't over do it(i'm so sorry if that sounds bad,i tried to phrase it in the nicest way possible)

8.Regularly change your passwords

9.Stay aware.That's all you can do really. If you see anything odd then report it to vwhelp



All of these tips should work to at least minimise the chance of you being hacked. If your hacked after these tips then its likely that the hacker has some sort of software that they're using.


What to do after your hacked:

1.Immediatly report it to bv.

2.(first make a side account or use an existing one)Remove any other items to a side account

3.Change the passwords of all your accounts(especially your email account)

4.Tell people and alert them that there's a hacker about.

5.On bv stay away from babw bear boulevard-this is most likely where the hacker will be

6.Don't panic-Bv will do their best to get your items back and your very likely to get them back!

7.Exit any glitchy trades immediatly or if you can't then log off! Some people can be hacked or lost items through glitchy trades.

8.Don't make assumptions without proof-if there is anything odd or suspicous then email bv and not announce it to the world as that causes a lot of drama!

9.NEVER CONFRONT A HACKER.Its a really idiotic thing to do even if they do have your items.



Thanks so much for reading and i hope these help.I tried to make them as colourful and easy to read as possible!
These took time and extra research so i'd be grateful if people didn't say mean or rude comments about them. I'll add more tips as i come across them!
Good luck!c:

Thank youu soo much! <33 Gonna do this right a way.

This hacker probably has a software to do this.<< I hope she gets a virus so she won't do this anymore.. I MEAN...WHO GETS ON A KIDS' WEBSITE TO HACK THEIR ACCOUNT, STEAL EVERYTHING, AND MAKE THEM CRY FOR HOURS? ALL THEIR HARD WORK..GONE. IT'S VIRTUAL, NOT MONEY...people shouldn't even do this with money in life anyway. But doing it online, that's some pretty messed up stuff, and tells who they are. = lonely and sad... (;

I've given one person my current password and really wanna change it.. I get my pc back in like a few days though and I know we're not like great friends anymore but I trust in her to not do anything to me. Great advice Fran! I also heard it helps to put a ! Or ? Or # or something like that Smile
