WoW Blog: Account Security and You (Yes, You)

Blizzard just posted a lengthy blog post that outlines some tips to keep your account safe. While most of you hopefully already follow these guidelines, here they are:

  • Never give out your account information.
  • Be mindful of phishing scams.
  • Don't use gold selling or power-leveling services.
  • Grab an Authenticator.
  • Install antivirus and anti-spyware software.
  • Keep your operating system up-to-date.
  • Keep your browser and browser plug-ins up-to-date.
  • Turn on your browser's phishing filter.
  • Read the "Help, I Got Hacked!" guide if your account is compromised.

As a reminder, GU Comics is currently hosting a contest to promote WoW account security. Submit a limerick by the end of the week for a chance to win a authenticator.
