Welcome to the forum..and I am very sorry that your account has gotten compromised. There are steps you should take in order to protect your Facebook account (see those under SETTINGS on your FB profile) and also additional steps that you should take in order to protect your YoWorld account. Lock Code and YoPass are two of these that Jess explains in her opening post.

There is nothing that can be done after an account has been breached, but actions should be taken so that this does not happen again.

:sad:

Did you check your Transaction Log? If you paid and the coins/yc were deducted but you were not credited the item, you should definitely send a ticket to the support team using the HELP tab above your game screen. :thumbsup:

___________

With an increase of players reporting messages coming from fake Vikings, we ask everyone to remember the following:

A real Viking will NEVER ask for your password.

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


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
:love:

___________

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


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!
