Important Safety Reminder for All Pirates

A savvy reminder, mates, on keeping your account safe and private:

  • Never download third-party software that someone promises will give you "rewards" or an advantage in Pirates Online.
    Don't be fooled – there is no other software you need to download that helps you play or chat in Pirates Online. Downloading such third-party programs can be unsafe due to possible viruses or keyloggers that compromise your Pirates Online account.
  • Never use your username or password on fan sites, online forums, or any applications outside of Pirates Online.
    Giving out your Pirate's account information to someone, even via social media sites outside of Pirates Online, will more likely result in your Pirate being stolen, a ban, and termination of your account.
  • Never give out your account information or passwords to anyone.
Keep yer account safe under lock and key!

Accounts terminated for hacking or sharing personal information will not be reinstated.

No one wants to lose all the time and effort spent building up a mighty Pirate.


NOTE: Disney GMs will never ask for your personal information in the game.

Not hard to keep that precious treasure known as our account info under lock and key.

I'm glad they have mentioned about keyloggers which I raise to them last year. Malware is malware and we should know by now how they can compromise a computer system. Same is true about keyloggers. It's not just your game account that is at stake, its also your computer system. Your anti-virus software can't protect your system from those. So be careful and just avoid clinking on any links your online friends send ya.
