Account Security - Your Tips

In the last edition of the Community Chronicle, we asked for your account security tips. We’ve collected just a few of your submissions below.

These are just a few of the many things you can do to keep your account secure, but they’re a great place to start!

Ceneres: To keep your account(s) secure I would recommend every player to create a 'Runescape Email Address.' Use this email address for Runescape only! This makes things easier and clearer. Your email is the source to change things to your account, and therefore, very important.

Aaron: Never use the same password for an important account (i.e. RS or banking account) and the email account that is registered to it.

Death Alter: Always remember to update Java if you need to

Finance: Put two-step verification on your email account. This is extremely important because an intruder can disable the Authenticator and reset your account's password using your account's registered email. Keeping your email safe is just as important as keeping your RuneScape password safe.

ForumScape: Use a mixture of letters and numbers in your password as it will strengthen your password, making it more difficult for it to be cracked.

Maxilicious: Always keep your antivirus up-to-date and schedule regular scans to ensure maximum security and safety.

Jackionn: Be sure to set up a bank PIN. If someone does gain access to your account then your bank PIN will protect your items from being stolen!

All of this great advice will go a long way in securing your account.

Remember that the best form of protection from account hijacking is the Authenticator. To take full advantage of this feature, head over to the Authenticator page or read the wiki article for full details!


To finish off this week’s edition, we thought we’d let you know about our latest initiative on Twitter. We know you love free stuff, so, every Friday is now #FreeStuffFriday on the RuneScape Twitter feed! Every Friday, at 8pm UK time, we’ll be giving away some brilliant RuneScape goodies, from concept art to T-shirts! Tune in to Twitter this Friday for more information.

Best of luck, and see you in the next edition! Don't forget - you can let us know what's going on in your part of the community at community@jagex.com. You may be featured in a future chronicle!
