    This is absurd... So either my old acc was hacked using this, or someone brute forced my 16 character randomized password

    Hey, I would like to clarify a lot of things that were pointed out by other people that are mainly purposefully misleading.

    1. Your password is not sent in plain text, and is compressed through several algorithms so that your password does not appear as visible through plain network sniffing. It is fairly complicated to defeat and write tools against this, and of which, I will refer to my next point:

    2. Public Wi-Fi IS dangerous, and anyone using them should be aware that everything you do on it may be visible by anyone else using the same wifi to see unencrypted connections you are establishing between services that you use.

    3. Following previous point, an actual person would have to sit near your location and use the same public wifi with appropriate, yet unexisting tools just to attempt to log any of your data.

    4. Like any service you use, the client has to send the password to the servers, in this case the Growtopia Servers in order to check against GrowIDs to log on. This is a standard process.

    5. And lastly, important to point out due to #4, playing on private servers may also lead to password breaching since you are sending all of your details to an untrusted source.

    Closing thread to avoid any further misleading rumors from spreading.
