There is a wide variety of ways to protect your login data. First of all, it is worth mentioning that even the most reliable protection cannot prevent unwanted consequences if you have voluntarily handed over your login credentials to another person. We strongly encourage you not to pass this information to anybody.
We would also like to highlight that a person can obtain access to the gaming account only if he/she has access to your email or social network account. This article will help you to find out more about login data security measures.
The following are some general guidelines concerning the protection of your data:
- Change your passwords on a regular basis. Use lower and upper case letters along with digits and/or symbols.
- Do not disclose your login details to third parties. You can make absolutely sure that your personal email, social network account, and computer/device are secure with you. However, you will never be able to control how your credentials are handled by other individuals you pass them onto.
- Make sure that your browser has safe browsing mode (incognito mode) enabled.
- Use up-to-date antivirus software and never open suspicious links or spam messages.

Facebook social network
Facebook offers 2-step verification. You can link your account to your phone number to receive a login verification code by SMS. If you activate 2-step verification, nobody can log into your Facebook profile without the code that is sent to your phone.
In case you suspect that somebody has temporarily gained access to your profile, you can track the account usage via the Security Settings.
You can also switch on login alerts. If you do so, you will be informed whenever someone logs into your account.
More useful security tips can be found in Facebook's Help Center. We recommend that you check the "Extra Security Features" article there.
Gmail, Hotmail and Outlook.com Email domains
These also allow you to set up 2-step verification. Connect your phone number to your email account and receive SMS codes to login into it.
It is also possible to connect an alternative email to your Gmail, Hotmail or Outlook account. This functions as an additional security feature when anybody tries to recover or obtain login credentials.
