Tips to Avoid Gaming Account Hacking. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Media & Entertainment.

Do you play a lot of multiplayer online games? If yes, then you should know that many game developers are not able to keep your personal details safe. Therefore, make sure that your account remains hard to hack. Here are some tips:

  1. Never share your password: This is the most common offend in the gaming-related account breaches. Don’t give it away even to your best friend. You don’t know when your friendship gets over with them and they might misuse it. Also, always use a memorable, exceptional, but unbreakable password and do not repeat passwords across games.
  2. Frequently scan for malware: Keyloggers and Trojans are added ways to negotiate with the gaming accounts. Always make sure to use a trusted security suite! Windows Defender is not up to the mark for it!
  3. Securing Home Network: Securing your home network is vital. Everything is connected to your home network from your computer, your phone, your tablet to even some appliances such as TVs. Even though consoles do not have malware, but there can be malware that can reach other devices on your network, that can provide the hacker the sensitive user information. The very first step towards securing the home network is securing your Internet router. Make sure to change the default password on your device. Begin with installing a firewall program, or permit it on your available router. In addition to these protections, make sure that you have a complete Internet security software suite on your computer, laptops, tabs, phones or any other devices connected to your network. This prevents malware from entering or accessing your network.
  4. Don’t Click on Links in Messages: Gaming companies never ask you for your gaming account credentials, and if you are finding any issue related to your account directly go to the game company’s website rather than clicking on the links given the messages.
  5. Get Aware of Phishing Scams: Read about the phishing scams and how can you get rid of them. Be wary of messages and emails from unknown senders. Never download unusual files or click on unfamiliar links.
  6. Avoid Account Trading: Account trading is not a good option at all. It should be avoided as you cannot reverse the transaction if the deal goes bad. Also, the original account owner will have all the account creation details; it is possible that they might even be able to recover the account via the Player Support! So do not get tempted by suspicious offers.

Since gaming consoles themselves are almost safe from malware attacks, but user accounts are still vulnerable. Using your common sense and some tips mentioned above, you can protect not only your personal information, but also the precious time that you have put into developing your character and gameplay accomplishments.

    Don’t click “Remember me”/”Remember my password” if you could avoid it. This goes not just for gaming but for all online sites.

    These tips remind me how much I hate hackers. It’s crazy that people actually devote time to try and figure out passwords and create phony links. Losers.
