    First b4 u change anything be paranoid run your anti virus scan and malware programs..
    Then change your passy.
    remember most acct theft are from people who know you and may have left or have a problem with you. and they "hack" the act to get even.Or may even pass the info around.
    My passy is changed weekly after all scans are complete and clean.
    one thing i havent seen addressed is to make sure your secondary email hasn't been compromised. always double check it.

    Security for your accts.
    With the recent problems with account threfts, here is some info that is helpful.
    1)Run your antivirus/anti-malware program first ( make sure it is up to date)Make sure it is from your personal computer and not a public one ie friend libraries internet cafe site.
    2) Do not give info to anyone u simply do not trust 2/3rds acct hijacked are by people you once knew .They either know your passy and or can guess the ones you use.
    3) Change your passy at least once a month use a combination of letters ( lower and upper case),numbers and possibly characters.. it is harder for them to figure out a random passy . Longer is usually better
    4) Set up your security code. it will keep them from npcing cities,deleting troops and deleting heros.
    5) Do your security questions as well.
    6) If you are using an account you have received from player ..Keep in touch with the first owner. This way you can at least retrieve the info as soon as possible
    7) One of the most important things to look at is your secondary email.. Check it and make sure it is set to a secondary email you have control of.
    8) Be paranoid If in doubt change you password, recheck your secuirty code and check the secondary email!!
    9) Do not answer random whispers about personal real life information ie: name of mom dad pets etc just block or ignore.And then start at step one ad redo info.
    10) If you do not know how to do this ask someone.We all will take time to help you secure your acct .


    This is what I posted to my members in skype .
    Account theft just doesn't affect the player it affects us a whole team . We recently had an account theft of a hitter in our alliance.She had just changed her passy and didn't check the secondary email ..as of yet evony ( as usual) hasn't done anything, even though skype convo with thief was screenshot and received by evony..

    So my best piece of advice is to secure your account. I cant help once the account is stolen and it seems evony cannot or will not help.

    i actually think its more along the lines of ppl giving out the info to other ppl incase they get attacked and the other ppl taking the account and saying it wasnt them lol, i will never give my info to any 1, we all know 95% of ppl share info in this game plus we all know that 90% of ppl are botting but nothing is ever done about it, plus we all know that 95% of ppl multi account cus they are crap players and cant play with 1 account, evony states none of this is allowed but they allow it? why is that? they realy could stop most of this but are to cheap and greedy to do so

    Yup, and it's the easiest way to compromise your account.

    good guide Eric..i would also make sure one would have a secondary email set up for the account with a totally different password just in case the password did change you could send the new password to the secondary email on the evony account.

    Lol sorry had just posted that in our skype rooms when acer showed me yours. Seriously though people need to remember they are the first line of defense against account thefts and hacking. I was shocked and dismayed a lot of my own players in my alliance didn't know about security codes and how to keep yourself secured

    Hey I cant post new threads and I have questions so I post this reply here. The first is how can I post new threads. The other is regarding FB account. I want to change the Fb account that is associated to my evony account but I found it impossible. There's not an option to change mail or FB account associated to your game account? Regards
