How to make a safe password when creating an Account,Are you making a Runescape account? Do you want it as safe as possible? Then you need to have a safe password that is not easily guessed. A good password would be a pet’s name and the year you were born. (Examples: max87 spot94 sam57) Perhaps a birth date of a famous person, a favorite book, or even just a random word. These are all great examples of runescape passwords. The more you can distance yourself from the password, the better. Of course, you want to be able to remember it, but you do not want it so easy so that a friend or relative can guess.
A Runescape password can be anywhere from 5 to 20 characters long. A character means a letter or number. Therefore, a password has to be at least 5 characters long and at most 20 characters long. Obviously, the more characters you have, the harder it is to guess. So a 5 character password is considered weak and a 20 character password is considered strong.
Runescape will not let you use a fragment of your Username or your Username spelled backwards for your password. This is because it is very easy to guess, when you are looking right at it. Therefore, you might want to take a few minutes and think up a good password. You can always change the password later. It is a good idea to change your runescape password every month or so, to ensure that it stays safe.
Congratulations! You now have created an account. It is not a good idea to write your password down on a piece of paper as Runescape says. If you write it down, and it is found by a friend or relative they can steal your account. However, if you do choose to write it down, make sure you store it somewhere safe.
The reason you want a want a safe password is not just for people you know in real life, but in the game as well. There are people out there that spend hours on end sitting and typing random passwords to get on an account that is not theirs. This seems really odd to some of you I’m sure, seeing as the time they spend trying they could be working on their account and getting the items, levels, and gold that they get from hacking other player’s accounts.
In addition, if Jagex finds out that they are trying to get player’s passwords then they will ban them. Jagex does not tolerate hackers, scammers, and thieves. They are working 24/7 to make Runescape more secure. Now if you try to say your password in the chat, it will not say it and send you a message saying, “it seems like you are trying to say your runescape password in the chat. We advise against this as people will try to steal your account.” I congratulate them on this, as this will stop scammers from scamming new players. It is very sad when they have to scam other players to get ahead. If everyone would just play fair, wouldn’t it be a better world? Then we could have more respect for the higher levels and not wonder to ourselves “did he buy that account?” or “I wonder if he used a bot to get that level Hackers, scammers, and thieves ruin Runescape for the good fun it should be.
Let’s keep our Runescape accounts safe and not give in to the criminals that like to show off their “winnings” on YouTube. Runescape was meant for everyone, not just the hackers who make the game unfair.
