Account security is paramount to ensure maximum enjoyment of PLAYWITH Interactive games and is ultimately the sole responsibility of each gamer since accounts cannot be compromised through any of the PLAYWITH site's itself. Most "hacked" or compromised accounts are a direct result of sharing login information with friends or relatives, downloading malicious files from new online acquaintances or questionable sites, and online phishing.
These steps will assist you in keeping your account information as secure as possible:
1. Anti-virus protection
All gamers should protect their computer by using anti-virus software as well as Firewall protection. These applications not only provide secure login to PLAYWITH Interactive games but also protect any personal and private information stored on your computer. Furthermore, critical operating system software updates should occasionally be uploaded from trusted sources to ensure the most secure computer operating environment possible.
2. Secure Password creation
A unique and not easily guessed password should be chosen and never shared so that the registered user of a PLAYWITH Interactive account is the only person accessing the account.
Secure Password tips include but are not limited to the following:
3. Never share login information
It is a Terms of Service violation to share account login information with anyone! PLAYWITH Interactive staff will NEVER ask for your password. This means that you should never provide it to ANYONE, including PLAYWITH Interactive staff. If your friends and family would like to try out any of the PLAYWITH's games, they may do so by creating a free account at one of the PLAYWITH game sites.
4. Know what you download
With growing popularity of PLAYWITH's games, other gamers will want to gain easy high level access by trying to scam an account from an established member.
