    Lightbulb Added security for item protection from hackers

    I've been seeing a lot of people getting hacked lately and apparently hackers bypass the advanced account protection to get to those accounts.

    This idea is mainly a countermeasure against hackers.

    I suggest a 4-6 digit code that must be entered when trading/dropping/recycling world locks, worlds, or high value items. Since there is a price checker in play now, it could be used to distinguish high value items from regular cheap items, high value items being worth 5 diamond locks or more (debatable). It would also be used when trying to trash/recycle untradeable items. This code will need to be entered only once, but if you disconnect or log out, it will have to be entered again the next time you go online.

    This new code would have to be entered in a page that will appear after putting an eligible item into the trade. This page should display 10 digits (0 to 9) on it and after one is selected, the order must be shuffled. Those digits will be pressed with the mouse (or finger on touch devices), and not written on the keyboard.

    If the digits are forgotten, There will be an button called "reset code", and this will remove the pin in 3-7 days. In the meanwhile, no high value items or worlds can be traded until the time is up and the code is reset. If the owner of a hacked account gets back online and enters the code correctly during his next trade, he will receive a warning message that someone tried to reset his pin, and that if it was not him, he should change his password.

    I also suggest that in order to break any lock, the code must be entered.

    This idea is strongly inspired from the Runescape bank pin system.

    To summarize, a 4-6 digit code has to be entered once per log in in order for anything important to happen on any given account.

    I'd approve of this idea, but people would find a way to bypass it just like they bypassed AAP on my account. I'm currently trying to get a hold of support because I lost 84+DLS due to AAP being breached. I'd love to see something like this be added!
