    This is a re-post, but I figured it would get more views and be of more use in this section.
    Do you know what the two most common passwords in the world are?
    password
    1234...etc
    I've always asked myself how people could be so unintellgient as to use such obvious and poorly secure passwords. The most frequent answer I was given, was that they didn't know any better. They didn't know what a good password was, because no one had taught them.

    This thread's purpose is to educate you on that very thing, with a few other helpful tidbits.


    The easiest way to protect your account, is to protect your password. Do NOT share it. It's against Evony rules and is the easiest way to compromise your account. (Keep in mind that Evony employees will never ask you for your password).


    Onto the most important part, your password itself. Here are some examples of BAD passwords:
    r1i2c3e4
    vault77
    bbbbbbbbb

    ...You get the idea.

    How to Make a Strong Password
    ***Do NOT use my password example(s). The point is for you to use a word/phrase that relates to you, so you won't forget it. Using mine is pointless.***

    • Make it as long as you can without making it hard to remember
    • Use symbols
    • Use numbers
    • Use upper/lower case letters

    I like to use a long word or a short phrase... For example:

    Sony Is Superior or Cheesecake

    I change the letters that look similar to symbols/numbers
    A = @ or 4 or ^
    I = 1 or !
    O = 0 (zero)
    S = $ or 5
    E = 3
    B = 8
    etc...
    On top of that I make all the non-changeable letters in the words 'Sony' & 'Cheese' to upper case, so I don't need to remember which letters are lower/upper. You should come up with something like this:

    $0NY1$$up3r10r or CH33$3c@k3

    And voila, you have yourself a strong password, that's easy to remember.

    Security codes are useful in some occasions... but the information i've already mentioned here is FAR more important. It's best to have them anyway, to buy yourself more time.

    I would also recommend saving your password(s) somewhere externally just in case you forget.

    ALWAYS make sure the email address linked to you account is valid! This allows you to reset your password if needed. Also use a different password for your email address and for your login so if you are hacked they can only get one or the other!

    Other ways to secure your account on website
    - Don't ever give out/post your account name
    - Don't give out your account e-mail address
    - Don't enter your password on other computers.
