4. Player and Account Safety

Players have the right to play in an environment which is safe from account phishing, scamming and account selling
Why do we have this rule?
As a Minecraft server, we do not have any control over your Minecraft account. However player safety is very important to us, so where possible we take steps to help protect our players from losing their accounts or otherwise being tricked or subjected to scams.

Please do NOT share your Minecraft account details with anyone else. You are responsible for what happens to your account so make sure that your passwords are secure and that you never give them out to anyone.
What does Player and Account Safety mean?
Player and Account Security means that you have used really good, strong passwords, used 2FA and not shared your information with other Users, that you do not trust, on the server.

There are various ways that your security could be gotten around and affected. Some are listed below:-

  • Staff Impersonation - pretending to be a member of staff (Helper, Moderator, Admin or other)
  • Trading Items or Accounts
  • Scamming
  • Phishing Links
  • Account Selling
How can I get help with my account security?
There are two ways which you can get assistance with your Minecraft Account security.

  • Contact Mojang Support
  • Refer to our Compromised Account
  • If banned with “Account Security Alert” contact appeals.
  • Tips: How to keep your account safe
    We recommend you: use strong passwords (at least 12 characters long), use security questions with your Mojang account, use two-factor authentication (2FA) with your email address if your email provider supports it, and most importantly, DO NOT SHARE your account information with anyone. (Not even your cat!)
