I reported it in bug report, only got the typical response that they are working on it....

Seems someone else said they reported it 6 months ago.

What's Up?

My FB was hacked and they took over my Yo world account. a msg saying enter yo pass code. I do not have yo pass and still cant gt in,they asked for specific ID which i dont agree to sending it is a big risk to do that. I sent them my user ID but havent received a reply. Friends are telling me there is a different Avi with the name Phil Mitchell in my room. furniture is gone as well. I want back in my account it is very disturbing to say the least I have more than 50 mil in coins. Was hacked before and all coins and cash were gone It has taken me a long time to earn the coins i want it back. Can someone please help me get the Yo Pass removed??? :(

Hey everyone! Keeping you #SafeandSecure is important to us. Please remember the following:

Do not share your Facebook password, or enter it on a site that isn't Facebook.

A real Viking will NEVER ask you to remove your Lock Code or YoPass.


Do not send anyone the contents of your browser's "View Source" page. Ever.

Report phishing attempts to Facebook - more information here.

The YoWorld team cares about keeping you Safe and Secure. You are your own best defense against these kinds of actions, and we're here to help you strengthen that defense!


Stay alert and stay safe! Please keep reading

Hey YoFans,

This megathread is your one-stop-shop for all things concerning keeping your YoWorld account secure! We’ll deal with ‘hacking’, social engineering and phishing, as well as ways that you can keep yourself safe from unwanted intrusions. Strap in, it’s going to be an informative ride!


Hacking

The biggest misconception right now is that your account can be 'hacked'. The term itself implies that there are programs being used to steal your information from our servers. Big Viking Games has added multiple layers of security to YoWorld, and as a result this has never happened under BVG's watch. We're committed to making sure it never will.


Social Engineering / Phishing

So how do these intruders get your information?

The most common way that your account can be compromised is by way of Social Engineering. Phishing, the most common form of Social Engineering, refers to getting other people to give out their personal information, usually without their knowledge. In YoWorld, this usually means your Facebook login and password.

Phishing occurs when someone sends you a link through email, Facebook, apartment messages, whiteboards, etc. The link looks legitimate, but will redirect you to a fake site that will steal your information. Popular phishing scams in YoWorld include fake Facebook login pages, free YoCash or item offer pages, YoWorld support pages, and people pretending to be Vikings - and as we said before...

A real Viking will NEVER ask for your password. A real Viking will NEVER ask you to remove your lock code or YoPass.

Additionally: do not send anyone the contents of your browser's "View Source" page. Ever. This applies to any account, anywhere - not just YoWorld!


How Can I Protect Myself?

The good news is that we’ve created various security features to help you out! Check out the posts below for more information on how these features can keep you safe, as well as some neat tips on online security!

Can some help me. I use Yoworld on my laptop and no problem. I also used to use my Ipad and my IPhone. I had to use Puffin for both. Well Puffin no longer exists but I was still able to get to Yoworld. Now I can not. So I went to my Apple Apps and downloaded the mobile companion. It takes me to YoWorld Casino page and I have no idea how to get to the actual game. I am not great with these computer things. If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

From all I can tell, all of the links to YoPass are no longer working. Even doing a search for YoPass on my android phone turns up nothing. Did BVG disable YoPass without making an announcement?

Just a Question:

During this COVID19, I want to invite my family to play YoWorld? Are we allowed to have our own accounts using same Wi-Fi network?

I heard that PLAYERS are not allowed to have multiple accounts. I am not sure of this though.

ADMIN, kindly respond

Thanks and More Power to the game

Somehow my data got deleted, I didn't do that. I spent so much time and money on this game, it says I can request archived data.. Is there really nothing I can do?
Yoworld mobile app has my person and my info, when I logged onto the forums it has my world level and my character.. How can I still have all of that if it says it's deleted? Please tell me I can get it back

Correct. If you have it on your current phone still, it will work.
If you are getting a new phone, make sure to disable it in game. You won't be able to use it on a new phone.

Not sure what you mean by repayment. Does it say you owe money? Is it something that has to be done within Facebook?
