Accounts on the popular online gaming platform keep getting hacked. So, how can you better protect your Roblox account?
First things first. Make sure that you are using a unique, hard-to-crack password for your Roblox account. That means not using a simple, easy-to-guess password, dictionary words, or passwords that you are using anywhere else online.
That last point is particularly important, perhaps the biggest mistake internet users make when it comes to securing their accounts is to use the same password in multiple places. Reusing passwords across different services means that if a hacker breaches one website’s password database they can then use those passwords to see if they unlock your other online accounts.
For instance, Mark Zuckerberg had his Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest accounts hacked in 2016 because he was using the same password for them as he’d been using on LinkedIn, which suffered a password breach in 2012.
But choosing a unique, strong, password isn’t enough. That password could still be phished from you, for instance.
And that’s why I recommend that computer users enable two-factor authentication or two-step verification (read this if you want to know the difference) where available, to add an extra step to the login process.
