  • I've been hacked for the 3rd time

    Last week, I logged in and stay in the game for an hour then I realize that someone is logging in my account I thought it was the server trying to. then right now it happens to me again, it was a person trying to log in.

    List of stolen/lost items:
    - 130 Growtokens
    - Zephyr Helm = 65-75 wls
    - Ancestral Lens of Riches = 260 wls
    - Little Red Hoodie = 24-25 wls
    - Money Gun = 90 wls

    p.s AAP was enabled

    time i logged in: 11:50 pm in Philippines time

      If you had AAP enabled then I think you better contact support they might give your items back not sure tho. But change your password from gmail, Game and all for safety.

        Okay.. From a tip from a pH player. Never goto casinos or give any information. If it just cookies, you must not go there.

        And submit a ticket to the support

          I've seen this Thread on the first page a few days ago. Sadly I couldn't reply, because of the new account restriction. I don't think this suits Off-Topic, since it's Growtopia related but I want to clear things out. Since I know just too good how doing this bad things work.

          In General the Support got their A-Z Answers that they use to answer to these scenarios. And I can tell you that they won't use their magic to give you your items back (since it's your duty to protect your accounts data), unless this case here is caused by their fault because the games database got compromised. Which is not the case because you just said AAP is enabled.

          What I see here is the use of an application that has stolen your Hardware Information that can be used to bypass the Advanced Account Protection. There might be other options, but I expect that everyone in here is smart enough to not do them.

          I just wonder how this is possible when you play the game normally. I don't want to accuse anyone in here of using third-party software that for example can start from seemless harmless World Planners, to the stuff that is not so harmless and may break the games rules.

          To keep it short now: You opened or just downloaded a program from the web, from a random / not trustful source, and it had a 'Stealer' built-in or binded to it which allowed the attacker to spoof his hardware with the stolen information from you and login into your Account. rip

            But if someone tried to log in to his account, wouldn't he have received a message from AAP saying that someone may have tried to log in to his account?

              I don't know if AAP does that when it doesn't detect a new Computer. That's what I meant with spoofing. The game is thinking it's the Account Owner logging into the Account.

                Internet security is a serious issue today. I faced with similar issue some time ago that's why I started using vpn to protect my privacy. It's the easiest way to protect data online from snoopers. I found review about no log vpn here https://veepn.com/vpn-features/no-log-vpn/ and decided to give it a try. Works great.
