    Default Login security

    So like my account got stolen today, my bad, idk how they got the info but regardless they got it. But I think Ubisoft should implement some better security when it comes to logging in. I’ve always played Growtopia in North Carolina USA, if there’s a random login in my account from India or some weird location or new device, I think it would be a good idea to have some kind of security questions, maybe even a verification code like google and apple do when you login somewhere else. Heck, that’s not even needed, a notification from the Growtopia app, telling me that my account is being accessed, would’ve be amazing, I probably wouldn’t have lost anything. This new system would cut down on the amount of people quitting, or complaining on forums about not getting their items back. Even if it would be a little annoying to set up and recover, I would (and I think I speak for thousands of Growtopians) still like the peace of mind to know that even if someone got their hands on my info, that all my hard work isn’t shattered. Thanks!

    For those who can’t read all that, just add some security questions, or even a simple notification if my account is being played somewhere other than my set home, or common login area.

    Yes, as long as it is toggleable as some people would find it annoying.

    Simply to put it, before you make any suggestions on login security, the main reason why accounts get breached is because they do not have strong passwords or that users fell for phishing sites

    The forums is the place where you can find people defined by the following:

    Cancerous
    Annoying
    Attention-seeking
    Dramatic

    Regardless, the issue could be prevented even if the password is found, Google has it, Apple has it, it’s not that difficult to do either. That would completely eliminate downloaded programs that steal your password, why would Growtopia store the answer to your security questions? Realistically, you can’t ban every ‘phisher’ out there, but if Ubisoft made it harder for phishers to USE your password then we’d see a massive decline in players losing their accounts.
