Default How to KEEP A Secure RuneScape Account [Tips]


1. Don't provide your RS email attached to your account

2. If you find something fishy, like someone asking you for details that seem similar to security questions, don't be worried to ask them why the hell they'd need these!

3. Don't provide your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to anyone! This is how your account can get 1 more step from being compromized!

4. Don't use the same password for everything! If you sign up for a forum and use the same pass as your RuneScape account, you never know what the wonder could be up to

5. Always be on alert, do not post public information that you feel is giving too much away!

6. Don't try to get free stuff from a website! It's BULL ****! The only thing you get free is a bank wipe...

7. Don't join any public chat with anyone that could somehow give out your IP! If you go PKing with them, you're most likely to get ****ed over!

8. Don't be a dumb ass and download programs and **** from youtube that will "generate you gp's" or bot and so on.

9. The best way is to just not associate with sketchy people; AKA the RuneScape 'black market'.

10. you should check everything in task manager daily , anything with *32 next to it should be checked like anything that's next to user not system.

11. Be carefull with Skype. People can call you and grab your IP! Once they have that they can boot you or family members using the internet on the same IP offline for an amount of time!

12. Don't try any RSPS unless try have good reviews, most are JBD's



If you feel I left anything out, please comment!

Summary: Do not be stupid. Use common sense.'

The IP and ISP stuff people may not think about though, so that's good info.

More often than not, greed is what compromise's someone's account, at least from my experience.

You should probably change your password if you do that though.
