Use the two authentifications Factor to avoid that, after enterring your password they will ask you for your 6 digit codes it's more safe since the hacker need not only the password but also the authentification code :D

Yes I will definetly do that. And that's exactly what pokerstars did. They sent me a 6 digit code for logging in . But that's only a one time code

One thing to think about is that even though some third party software is allowed by Stars during play they still might increase security risks.

I don't use any Apps during poker session.
But yes I can see why this might be a security risk.
One more reason for me not to use one

I just changed my password on pokerstars today, I generally don’t recommend having the same passwords in mail and in poker rooms .. although it’s convenient

Did any of you experienced hacking attempts in your PS account?
I don't know if it was really tried on me, but I received the same email from PokerStars yesterday night
I haven't experienced it (for now) but maybe that's the reason why PS performed maintenance few hours ago. Maybe it was on their side...

Yes could be that last night there was a hacking attack on multiple user accounts, so they enhanced security.

I personally did not have this, let all the hackers work on your account:Lol: Just kidding, this probably happens when you enter the password incorrectly, or maybe someone decided to try to hack you but it will be very difficult

Not happened to me, but I think that's unffortunely common. My Steam account had several hack attempts, and I didnt had that very much money (something like 0,33 US). With a tough bankroll in PS account, that might be far more dangerous...

One of the reasons I never leave substantial sums on my PS account.
Main reason is my gf wants the money on our bank accounts lol

I remember once after winning more than $1,000, I also received emails about attempts to log in to my account from different countries. After changing your email address and improving account access, this stopped.

yes, you don’t have to worry about your account, nothing will happen to you, the strongest pokerstars protection protects you, so they are responsible if you are hacked, you will ask him, especially since your girl is a lawyer, if she kicks their asses:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

In the last 2 months 3 people apparently tried to hack my PS account
I know this because Pokerstars send me one time Pins for security after failed login attempts..

Yer naughty that, one of my mates who plays on stars get so that continuously. That pin Is your lifeline as attempts can be made on your account from either your email or user name. May I ask if you have had any attempts on any of your social media or you get fake dating site stuff to you email spam folder?

Well'I never experienced those hacking attempts and I hope I never will. But yes it can be careful to change the password and improve the access conditions.

Just inquiring to other potential connections to your activities. Would be easier to fine line in discovery the source of the intrusion. If you’ve had no such security attempts elsewhere, it’s likely to be a player from this forum or another that’s poker related, scam attempts leave Hansel and Gretel breadcrumbs, you just need to deconstruct what’s there to see

I was hacked once in my PP account. I lost $50, at least I didn't had much money there. PP didn't done anything about it, like probably all rooms. I changed my pass and add the 2-step verification. PS offers a security token on their vip store and I would definitely buy the token if I was a regular player on PS.
