Account Safety at Home

How can you prevent account theft and ensure account safety if you play TQ games at home? There are a few guidelines that you should follow.

Consolidate your PC

Windows provides an automatic update service. Frequently update your system to install the latest patches provided by Microsoft to minimize system vulnerabilities. Most mainstream anti-virus software provides a system scanner services informing you of potential safety hazards on your PC. Make good use of this kind of software to protect your PC. We also recommend you setup an administrator account for your PC and use a combination of letters and numbers as your password.

Update your Anti-Virus Software & Firewall

Viruses and Trojan Horses are frequently used by hackers to steal our personal information and privacy. So, anti-virus software and firewalls are of vital importance to the security conscious PC user. If we compare our PC to a house, the system would be the columns that support the house, the firewall and anti-virus software would be the fence and burglar alarm system that protect our house against burglars. So, if we want to protect our property, we need a sensitive burglar alarm system and a high fence. Remember to frequently update your anti-virus software and firewall so that they will better guard the house – your PC. Now, we will also recommend some powerful and frequently updated anti-virus programs: AVG Anti-Virus, Avast Anti-Virus, CA Anti Virus, and McAfee Anti-Virus.

Beware of the Suspicious and Unknown Link

As we are playing games, we usually use some IM software such as MSN or AIM to chat with our friends and share files. Take care! That’s how the PC viruses and trojan horses are spread. When you are receiving files, don’t forget to scan the file with anti-virus software first to make sure the file you receive is safe and clean.

Our PCs will be exposed to all kinds of malware when we are browsing web pages. If your PC is not well protected by anti-virus software, your PC is vulnerable to the viruses hiding in the dazzling web pages. So, do not open unknown links or download files from the unknown sites.

Account Protection at Internet Cafés

How do you protect your account if you play TQ games in an Internet Café?

Never Go to an Unlicensed Internet Cafe

Most unlicensed internet cafés have poor management and security. As it’s mentioned above, their PCs are more vulnerable to malware. Most of them may have already been infected by a virus or a trojan horse.

The licensed Internet Cafés, on the other hand, are well managed and have good security systems. It would be wise to choose the internet cafés which computers have Recovery Genius installed and where downloading and installing files and programs are prohibited. By doing this, the possibility of spreading malware is reduced to a minimum. You may ask, what is Recovery Genius? Recovery Genius is software that recovers your system everytime you restart your computer. It will return the system to a clean system backup preventing malware from being planted into the computer.

Make Some Changes

Internet cafés are public places, so you must be more conscientious when you are entering your account and password. Never share your account details with another player. Account sharing is extremely dangerous and could lead to your account being compromised. Your account details are for you and you alone. Also, never use a computer in any Internet Café to pay online!

Account Protection at Internet Cafés

It’s common that we enter our account ID first then our password. Change that habit! Since the order you enter your account ID and password is also the order that a keylogger trojan horse collects your account details. If the computer you use is unfortunately infected by a trojan, this little change in how you enter your info could make the difference between a safe account and a hacked one. Try to break your account ID and password into fragments and entering them in alternating keystrokes to make your account more secure.

Actively Protect the Account

How do you actively protect your account? What shouldn’t be done?

No matter if you play at home or in an internet café, it’s very important not to use bots or cheating software since most of them contain malware and will record your PC activity as well as your game account and password.
