Keep Your Password Safe

It’s super important that your password is a secret. It’s like the keys to your house, or in this case the keys to all your special ROBLOX stuff.

What is a password scam?

Don't type your password

A password scam is when someone tries to get your password in a sneaky way. Usually try to be your friend and offer you help or to buy you Builder’s Club or Robux. Or maybe they threaten or bully you. People can also change your password if you stay logged in at your computer when you are not there.

Recently clever scammers have been getting passwords from other sites where you may also have an account. For example if you make an account on a website off of roblox.com, like forums, surveys or special offer sites, and use your same email address and password that you do here, the owner of that site will be able to get on your ROBLOX account. Don’t use the same password you use on ROBLOX anywhere else. Keep your ROBLOX password unique!

The person who gets your password may not be nice! They might…

  1. Spend your Tix and Robux
  2. Delete your hats
  3. Steal your places
  4. Get you in trouble
  5. Change your password

A password scammer is not a scary hacker. It doesn’t take any computer skills to do this crime. Most scammers look just like the other users so it’s best to be careful and not tell anyone your password or use the same password on different sites, no matter what. 

Password Scammer

How do they get away with it? They don’t. As soon as we have proof of account scamming the scammers get banned and deleted. We take this very seriously.

What can you do?

  • If you see someone asking for passwords in a game chat, report it.
  • If you get mails like the one above where someone asks for your password report them right away.
  • Log out of ROBLOX when you are not playing.
  • Don’t share your account with anyone.
  • Change your password to something complicated.
  • Use a different password on each website.

Your password should not be one of the following things… your first name, last name, username, birthday, zip code, sisters name, brothers name, or just asdfg or 123456.

It should be more like one of the following things…
K%t3ispr3tty
1337Haxx0rz
gr33n!(*^

Then you memorize the password. If you need to write it down, give the paper to your parent to keep safe. Never give out your password, even to someone who is offering to help or buy you Robux!

    the proper term for someone who hacks into games is a cracker. The real hackers are the ones that built the internet. Dont call them hackers. call the crackers. the name also does justice in insultation, would you like to be a cracker or a hacker? hacker? thought so.

    People always send me messages telling me their passwords. I never try getting into the accounts, though. No way, jose. I just report them.

    Umm…this is REALLY old news… Also, who the heck is the kid in the sparkly suit? Should we avoid kids in sparkly suits? Even so, it’s kinda funny. Wait…the sender…of the PM…HE’S ALSO THE GUY WHO WROTE THIS! He’s going to get ideas of our passwords… And this guy is an ADMIN! Also, he posted a picture of somebody! Actually, I think that kid is inocent even though he looks 500% guilty… Now opening Project A.V.R.E.P.S. (Avoid ReeseMcBLox, Evil Password Stealer)
