I havent played in a few months and decided to start playing again yesterday as im on holidays.

I tried to login in and it kept giving me the Too many login attempts error message. I tried recovering my account and changing password but still had the same issue. I removed the authenticator and was able to login.

I got up this monring and tried to login and im having the same problem, Too many login attempts. First time trying to login havnet played for over 12 hours.

Please help, its a waist of membership at this point if I cant even log in.

Hi Triton.

First, please enable Authenticator again!

It's possible someone is trying to log in to your account, maybe because of the desirable name. They probably only have the account's login name, and are trying to guess the password.

I will see if I can get any more information on this situation.

Update:
Yes, it seems likely that someone is trying to log in to your account. Unfortunately, there's not a lot Jagex can do (and the 'Too many login attempts' thing is preventing the hijacker from trying passwords rapidly).

You should make sure you have a strong password on the account. Don't use real words. Use a combination of numbers and letters. The hijacker may be working through a list of common passwords, or ones that have been leaked, hoping to find a match.
Glad to be of service :) (Powered by GPP™ - Share and Enjoy!)
