Sheriff Steele's Security Tips - Account Security

Hi again, Pandanda Citizens,

I hope you have all learned a lot about keeping your Pandanda account safe this week. With a strong, hard-to-guess password that you keep completely private, you can pretty much know that your account will be safe and secure.

Here are a few last tips to help make sure that your panda, and all of the things you have worked so hard to collect and buy, will be secure:

Do not check the “Remember my password” box on the login page if you play Pandanda on a public computer, such as at school or the library, or even at home where other people play.
  • If that box is checked, all anyone has to do to go on your account is click on your panda’s picture.  
  • Always log out of Pandanda when you go away from your computer. It is also a good idea to close the Internet browser. 
Make sure your computer is updated with good anti-virus and anti-spyware program
  • Pandanda has many security features in place to protect your account information, but it is up to you to protect your own computer.
Only use an account that you have created yourself, using your own email address. 
  • If you use an account that someone else made, that person still has control over the account because it is registered to their email address.
Don't forget, if you ever forget your username or your password, you can use the "I forgot my password" link. By entering your email address there, you will receive an email that shows the username and password for all of the accounts registered to that address. And if you need to change your password, use the "Change my password" link. You can find both of those links at the bottom of the Pandanda login page.
Keep it safe, Pandas!
