    I bet you didn't have 2FA on your email.

    I'm sorry but if you can't keep your email account secure then we can't keep your GrowID safe.

    You will have to create a new GrowID with a secure email address and keep it safe this time.

    2 Factor autenthication. AKA advanced account protection like in GT, but google just sends a text message to the phone number.

    Two Factor Authentication also known as Advanced Account Protection. You'll need to click a confirmation link everytime a new device/IP address is detected.

    Hey. As what others mentioned above. They really help, next time you should be careful about these details because it doesn't only affect Growtopia. Your personal information could be misused, my tip is to enable any extra security measures and make a strong password.

    This is a valuable lesson to you. I hope you learn something from it, hope you the best.

    1. Make sure you have AAP active
    2. Make sure you have a strong password, use symbols, making sure that you dont remember it without a note is a good sign
    3. Make sure you have 2FA on email
    4. Make sure you have a strong password on email
    5. Keep your email private
    6. Don't download shady stuff
    7. NEVER EVER IN YOUR LIFE WRITE YOUR PASSWORD ANYWHERE EXCLUDING PASSWORD FIELD WHEN U LOGIN IN GAME

    Even if phone-verification is on, there's sim-swapping.

    Two-factor authentication is an infallible method to protect anything. I have two-factor authentication on my apartment, and it has not failed yet. You need a my key AND my permission if you want to come in and rob me blind!
    Been playing Growtopia since 2010.

    I speak when I need to. Don’t count me out yet!
