Account Security
Do not give your password to anyone.

The most important thing you can do to protect the security of your account is to not share your account password with anyone. In many cases we are unable to verify the rightful owner of the account, and in most cases we cannot recover anything stolen from the account.

  • Three Rings Design and the Puzzle Pirates staff will never ask for your password. We do not need to know your password and will never ask for it for validation purposes.

  • Do not give out your account information or password if you are contacted over an instant message service (such as AIM, MSN).

  • Do not accept files sent to you over instant messaging services. These files can contain malicious software intended to steal your account information.

  • You should only ever use your Puzzle Pirates account to log into the Puzzle Pirates client, Account page, the support page, the Puzzle Pirates forums or the YPPedia. You should never enter your Puzzle Pirates account name and password into any other program, website or forum.

For more information on keeping your account safe and secure please see:

Re: Account Security
Gebe niemals dein Passwort weiter, an niemanden.

Das wichtigste, was du tun kannst, um deinen Account zu schützen, ist, dein Passwort niemals jemand anderem mitzuteilen. In vielen Fällen können wir nicht überprüfen, wer der rechtmäßige Besitzer eines Accounts ist, und in den meisten Fällen können wir Dinge, die von Accounts gestohlen werden, nicht zurückholen.

  • Three Rings und Mitarbeiter von Puzzle Pirates werden dich nie nach deinem Passwort fragen. Wir brauchen dein Passwort nicht.

  • Gebe niemals Accountdaten weiter, wenn du über Instant Messenger (wie AiM, MSN, ICQ etc) danach gefragt wirst.

  • Nehme keine Dateien an, die dir jemand über solche Dienste schickt. Oftmals sind das bösartige Programme, die dazu dienen, deine Accountdaten zu stehlen.

  • Du solltest dein Passwort nur ins Loginfenster im Client, auf deiner Accountseite, der Supportseite, dem Puzzle-Pirates-Forum oder der YPPedia eingeben. Gebe deinen Accountnamen und -passwort niemals auf anderen Webseiten, Foren oder Programmen ein.

Re: Account Security
No le dé su contraseña a nadie.

Lo más importante que puede hacer para proteger la seguridad de su cuenta es el no compartir su contraseña con nadie. En muchos de los casos no podemos verificar el verdadero dueño de una cuenta, y en la mayoría de los casos no nos es posible recuperar mucho de lo robado la misma.

  • El personal de Three Rings y de Puzzle Pirates nunca le preguntará por su contraseña. No necesitamos saber cuál es, y nunca se le pedirá como medio para corroborar información.
  • No proporcione información acerca de su cuenta o contraseña si es contactado a través de algún servicio de mensajes instantáneos (tales como MSN,AIM)

  • No acepte archivos que le hayan sido mandados a través de mensajes instantáneos. Estos archivos pueden contener programas maliciosos designados para robar la información de su cuenta.

  • Solo debe usar su cuenta de Puzzle Pirates para ingresar al cliente de Puzzle Pirates, Account Page ,Support Page, los Foros de Puzzle Pirates y la YPPedia . No ingrese su nombre de cuenta de Puzzle Pirates ni su contraseña en ningún otro programa, página web o foro.

Re: Account Security
Pirate Service Announcement - Please Read

We are aware of a link going around that redirects players to a web page that is an exact copy of the forum log-in page. In filling out this form, rather than logging into the forums, one is in fact unwittingly handing over their account name and password to a scammer. We have taken steps to identify and lock out those accounts that have been already been compromised to prevent any further damage to them. If you are the owner of one of these accounts please do e-mail our support department using the e-mail support form ( ) immediately to confirm ownership of your account.

Protecting your account from this attack is as simple as verifying what website you are visiting before entering sensitive information such as your username and password into a form. Before logging in, verify the address bar reads "" as that means you are on the forum section of It is also a good idea to double check where a link is actually linking you before clicking on it. Most browsers will have a status bar (generally at the bottom of the window) which when your mouse is hovering over a link will show where you are being directed. If the link looks suspicious and you're not sure what website you are being linked to, please don't click it!

In addition to this, if when browsing the forums a window pops up prompting you for "authorization" or otherwise asking for your account information please be aware that this is not normal forum behaviour and is another version of the scam to get your account information. As such, please do not fill the form in. Instead, please submit a petition to the on-duty Ocean Master (by clicking Ye - Help - Petition in-game) and let them know what thread it occurred in so we can review the matter and take care of the offending scammer. Petitioning an Ocean Master is always the best first step for this or any other forum problem.

As always, for more general information for keeping your account secure please review our account security page here:
