Please be aware that there are individuals out there that want your personal details.

They are after your PIN numbers, Bank Account details and yes, America's Army Game account details as well.

In the same way as your bank will NEVER ask you for your PIN number and you would not be foolish enough to give it to anyone, America's Army Staff will NEVER ask you for your Game or Forum account passwords.

We all need to start taking a bit more care over our account details, so here are a few pointers to avoid having your account hijacked, stolen or otherwise tampered with.

1) Under no circumstances give out your Account Password to anyone. This includes "Best Friends", Clan mates or anyone else for that matter. You wouldn't give out your bank PIN number so don't give out your game account password.

2) Make sure your game account password is not the same as your other passwords. Many accounts have gone astray due to the same password being used on other sites.

3) Make sure yours is a strong password. This means make it a combination of numbers, letters and capital letters. The stronger it is the less likely people are to guess it.

4) Change your password frequently. If you change your password every few months you are again making it harder to guess.

5) For those of you running versions of America's Army prior to 2.7, under no circumstances give anyone your user.ini file. It contains your password! After 2.7 the passwords were encrypted.

6) Under no circumstances give out your Account Password to anyone. This includes "Best Friends", Clan Mates or anyone else for that matter. You wouldn't give out your bank PIN number so don't give out your game account password.

Number 6 is not a mistake. The majority of accounts lost are down to people voluntarily giving someone else their password. There is no justifiable reason for anyone to request that you give them your password, so please don't do it.

To add on to the above, be very cautious about clicking suspicious links that may be posing as America's Army related fan sites. There have been a few instances where malware has been implanted on systems from such sites, which will in turn compromise your account information.
