  • So Many People Getting Hacked

    Not sure if anyone's made a thread similar to this but- Why are so many people getting hacked lately? I've heard of 3 people who have been hacked in the last 24hrs. What's going on..? Are we even safe anymore? I believe all 3 had aap on too.

    Here's what you should do:
    Just to be safe, you should record a video of your gt character with all your valuable items (Wearing or tapping in the inventory) while doing /time. That way if you ever do get hacked, you have evidence that you owned those items. Make sure AAP is enabled! I don't think the support team can help you if it's not enabled! Buy those password safe vaults. Who knows, they may actually help in keeping your items safe while you're offline, or even playing, atleast for the time being. Put them in your most valuable worlds, as they make the world untradable. Take a video of all your worlds when you wrench yourself too, just in case. Also, it may be a good idea to change your password now- both GrowID & the email you use with it. [Be careful though, if there's even a slight possibility that you've been keylogged, do not do this & instead, take a look at your device for any signs of keylogging].

    What Now?
    Just stay safe everyone. Hopefully there's an explanation for these people getting hacked in such a similar time frame. Take extreme caution when clicking suspicious links & downloading files. Do whatever you possibly can on your account to keep your items & account safe.

      I smashed my hard disk and had to get a new one so I'm virus free *dabs in depression*

      Just a side note tho. Alot of people should also activate 2FA on their emails aswell and add a phone number (for SMS or call confirmation that it's actually you that just logged in) also for extra security of it.

        I'm pretty sure atleast 2/3 of them had it.

        Yeah, do this. Your email is FAR more valuable information than your Growtopia account.

          I think these players don't know how to secure their personal informations. Just don't click any links on growtopia forum/websites, Don't give your password to anyone, don't play private servers. if you don't do these things, you are safe.. Just don't...

              tbh at some point, I met someone who said out in public (to the world) my previous password and GrowID. Also the email I'm currently using.
              It's scary on what they can do.

                  That's my worst fear when seeing a hacker in any game. The ability to get all your information in ways alot of us don't understand.

                            I'm using Linux so I don't have antivirus. Not because I think Linux is completely immune to viruses, but because I can't find any reasonable ones.

                            Anyway I think the person who put the link just wanted to advertise his webpage cuz the website the link leaded to is something like an Indonesian version of lifehacker.com

                              If thats the case, just keep looking for a good antivirus.
                              Lets hope thats his intention
