    Hey lunatics,

    It has been brought to our attention that some very childish people have been trying to gain themselves access to in-game and forum accounts by impersonating management members. This thread's purpose is to teach you how to protect yourself from such people and hopefully avoid any further account breaches.

    The most common cases is when someone creates a Discord account, names himself Toompert and puts Toompert's actual forum picture in order for the account to look legit. Afterwards, he either asks you to login on a fake beta server or directly asks for your password. By you logging in on a fake beta server using the same credentials as on Lawless Roleplay, the "hacker" will be automatically gaining access to your Lawless account.


    How do I prevent this from happening?

    Never enter your Lawless Roleplay credentials outside of our domain or SAMP server. NOBODY from the staff team will ever ask for your password or ask you to login on the beta server via Discord what so ever. If a management member ever needed your password he would simply change it and log onto your account himself. If a legit management member actually is in need of your assistance, we will either send you a message over forums or Skype.

    If somebody contacts you over Discord and asks for your password/ beta server login, do not fall for his lies, simply block him.


    How do I add extra security into my forum account?

    Click into your forum name, go at the "Two-Step Verification" thingy, click on it and enter your forum password. Numerous of options will appear, however, choosing the verification code via App is the most efficient and recommended method. Detailed explanations on how to use and set it up will be provided below.


    Verification code via App

    Login verification is an extra layer of security for your forum account. Instead of only entering a password to log in, you’ll also enter a code which is sent to your mobile phone. This verification helps make sure that you, and only you, can access your account.

    Before enabling this feature, you must download either from App Store or Play Store (whatever you use to download things) an application named "Authenticator". Once you've associated your forum account with the application, the application will be generating unique 6 digit codes every 30 seconds.

    In order to access your forum account, you must type your password and the 6 digit code afterwards. After you enable this feature, you will always need both your password and your mobile phone to log in to your account. It adds an extra layer of security and makes it impossible for anyone but you to access the account.


    -------------------------------------​

    We will also start working on upgrading / adding extra security layers to your in-game accounts as well. We will be closely reviewing player suggestions and implement whatever we find more reasonable to do so in a timely manner.

    If you have any doubts that your account might have been compromised, please do not hesitate to contact me or any HA+ directly via a forum message. We will be personally handling every case and rest assure that we will be doing our best to prevent such things from happening.


    --------------------------------------​

    Thanks for your time,
    Roy.
