Thread: Account Security Reminder

  1. #1

    Default Account Security Reminder

    Recently we have seen a number of new attempts to steal, scam and cheat users out of their account information. The Evony Team would like to remind all our users that third-party sites which purport to give players some type of in-game advantage (map reveal, resources, troops, etc.) do not work.

    Because all data is handled server-side, it is impossible for these types of sites to function. In fact, their purpose is to steal players account information, either by installing a trojan/keylogger or by asking the user to manually enter his or her account information.

    While we take aggressive action against these sites whenever possible, it is important that you do not fall prey to them. The easy way out is frequently fraught with peril.

    Evony uses a robust and secure system to log our players into the game. Virtually every case of a user's account being compromised has resulted from either voluntarily giving this information to another player or from frequenting these types of cheating websites.

    Players who do not give their account info to anyone and do not frequent such websites invariably retain account security. We would like to encourage all our players to keep their information private and their browsers pointed toward Evony.com and our approved fansites.

    Finally, never, under any circumstances, set your Evony password the same as the email password you used to register. This makes it much easier for someone to get hold of not only your game account, but your email account as well (which makes it harder to get your account back, should the worst happen). Don't do it. If the passwords are the same right now, change your Evony password!

    A list of Evony-approved fansites can be found here.

    Thank you!
