You can be incredibly careful online, but an innocent child’s game can be what makes your information more vulnerable to hackers. In fact, hackers may understand and recognize that these are great avenues to attack through.
When these games were created, security wasn’t really considered in the setup. And as such, children find themselves getting hacked often. Adult hackers lurk around these games, asking children for their information, and innocent kids unwittingly give their information.
In fact, tens of thousands of accounts were hacked through Neopets recently for these exact reasons. It’s always a good idea to set up accounts to be specifically for kids with certain privacy restrictions.
