Greetings Heroes,

As you may know, MMO accounts are common targets for individuals seeking illicit monetary gain or digital vengeance. It is of the utmost importance that each user realize the responsibility they have to protect themselves. “But hackers are too smart, they’ll get me anyway,” you may say. Consider though, that a digital assailant who is interested in acquiring your account information—whether an individual or a company—is likely to have a bottom line. While you may be unable to make every piece of your digital profile literally impregnable, there are reasonable and fairly simple steps you can take to make it more of a headache than a “hacker” is willing to deal with. Additionally, educating yourself about the threats you may encounter as you navigate the web can enable you to recognize or entirely avoid situations where a nefarious entity is attempting to trap you into doing their work for them, such as phishing scams.

While Snail Games investigates methods which we can offer to enhance account security options and tools, we recommend dedicating a little bit of your day to guarding yourself against these threats. While your friendly neighborhood search engine can offer the most up-to-date information on account security, computer security, phishing, online privacy and similar topics, we've gotten the ball rolling by picking a few articles for you. They will contain overlapping info, but hey, The More You Know /rainbow star. We truly hope you’ll take a few moments to review this critical information and put it into practice. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

TLDR: It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.
