How to Prevent Getting Your Account hacked!
If you follow these steps, you won’t lose access to your account:
- Never Share your Username/Email & Password with anyone: If someone has your Login Details, they can access your account and change all the details because of which you may lose access to your account.
- Always Enable 2 Steps Verification: You can enable 2 Steps Verification from Security settings. Once enabled, whenever you or anyone will try to login to your account, an OTP will be sent to your Registered Mobile Number or Email. Without that OTP, no one can access your account.
- Never Enter your Login Credentials on any site other than Roblox’s official site: There are many scam sites which make exact replica of Roblox’s official site or make a fake site which claims to give Free Ingame Currency and once you enter your login credentials, they are saved to the site’s cloud and can be accessed by the owner which can use that to access your account.
- Never Download Unofficial 3rd Party Softwares: Many 3rd party software come with Malware, Keyloggers, Etc which steal all your important details like Documents, Card Details, Account Details, etc and upload them to their host cloud, which is later used to exploit the user.
Now, let’s begin with how to Recover your Hacked Account! Shall we?
How to Recover Your Hacked Account?
- First Remove any 3rd Party Software which may have Malware: Firstly, Run a Virus Check on your computer and remove all the contaminated Files and Softwares. Restart your PC and do the same again to be on a safer side. If the Malware Software Is not removed before recovering your account, then there are high chances that your account might get hacked again and you don’t want that right?
- Recover your Password: once all the malware software are removed (if any), then goto Roblox’s Official site and click on Forgot Password/Username on login Page.
Now follow these steps to reset your password:
- Enter your email address in the Email box and press continue.
- Make sure to enter your correct email address exactly as you entered it while logging in.
- Press the Reset Password button or click the link in the email
a). If you have only one account this will open a page to enter your new password
b). If you have more than one account you will go to a page listing all of your accounts.
- Choose the account you want to reset. Enter and confirm your new password, then press the Ok / Submit button.
3. Contact Support: If resetting your password didn’t help in recovering your account, then you must contact Roblox Support with the email you used to login to your account. Roblox Support will verify your ownership by asking your billing details, address, etc. Once verified, they will assist you in getting your account back.
If you lost some Ingame currency or some item, then Roblox doesn’t guarantee the recovery of your currency but they will try to provide one-time recovery of the items lost as Roblox doesn’t have the feature to revert the users account to the previous state.
