Firefly’s Tips for making a secure password when playing our games
Gepostet von Lord Friendly (Firefly) an 24 July 2019 02:08 PM
When playing some of our games, we ask that you create an account to access them, which requires a username and a password to be created. To help maintain the security of our players and their time within our online worlds, here are a handful of top tips in creating strong and secure passwords.

The longer, the better

There are multiple methods hackers can use to gain access to your information, the longer your password is, typically the longer it takes to be decrypted. For clarity, passwords that are three characters or less can be broken in less than a second by modern decryption methods So we suggest using eight characters or more.

Include numbers, varying cases and symbols

Much the same as the length of the password, incorporating a variety of cases, symbols and numbers increases the complexity of the password and the difficulty in breaking it. One good suggestion is to incorporate it into memorable phrases, such as replacing O with 0 or E with 3.

Be aware of where you log in

Avoid entering your account on devices you don’t own or control as they could potentially have malware installed to intercept and steal your login information. Additionally, avoid using your account on an internet connection you don’t own or control. Hackers often utilise open, unsecured Wi-Fi connections such as those in Cafes or Airports to intercept sensitive data.

Use different passwords

One of the best practices in creating secure accounts online is to use different login information for each of your accounts. This means that if one of them happens to become vulnerable, the others remain secure. The downside of this is that it becomes a challenge to remember all the different logins required, but there are secure third-party password managers that help to alleviate this. Never use the same login details for your online banking or other sensitive information sources as ours or any other online service.

Change your password regularly

Infringements on security can happen often without yours or the data holder’s knowledge. A final top tip is to change your passwords regularly to help maintain your accounts security throughout your time playing. The more sensitive you feel the information is, the more you should be changing your password. As mentioned previously, secure services exist to help manage your online account information such as password managers. It’s also fine to write all your passwords down, as long as they are kept private and secure.

If you have any concerns about the security of your Stronghold Kingdoms account, or would like your data removed entirely from our systems, please reach out to dataprotection@fireflyworlds.com with your username and email. For further tips on cyber security, please consult your local governing body’s official website.

New Player - Lord Accounts
Gepostet von Lord Friendly (Firefly) an 14 September 2018 02:32 PM

When a new player who is discovering Stronghold Kingdoms for the first time on iOS, Android, Mac or Windows 10 Store enters the game world, they will be named Lord ##### until they choose to register a proper name for themselves.  This is the reason why you see many players with similar names like Lord 12292 or Lord 19471.


These new players present a great opportunity for you to expand your influence, acquire vassals, forge alliances and meet new friends!

Reach out to these players and welcome them to the community, their loyalty to you in the wars to come may be worth more than all of the crowns and cards in the kingdom!
