So someone managed to find out my password. I'm a little confused as to how he did it though. I never shared my password, I never went to any linked sites other than youtube once (and I didn't even put in credentials). My concerns are how he managed to get my password, and if he might have other information. Any thoughts?

If you have used the same password on any other site along with your username or email address it could have been hacked and leaked through that site.

It could also be that your computer security is not as good as you think.

Anyway you can enable authenticator to require a unique code that expires after 30 seconds from your mobile phone or a program installed on your computer, however if you do this I would advise you have it on an external usb thumb drive so it's not always connected to your computer and hackable.

Yeah, I've been putting off getting the authenticator. Guess I paid for being so lazy. I use different passwords for everything, so that really only leaves an issue with my computer security itself. Thanks for the advice.

Hey Dunkle Thee.

Did you have a bank pin for your in-game wealth ?

If Yes , was that still active or removed ?

No reason to ask about Auth.

I would suggest you to look into the support page :

Hijacked account and follow all steps.

Jagex do recommend us to Have :

Secure Email with 2fa
Auth for our RS account(s)
Bank pin for our in-game wealth
Clan : Order Of Adventurers

FriendsChat : Ooa team

Its hard to get someones password unless you have somethign like a keylogger
that you have inadvertently downloaded. Or if you have been phished.

Was your email changed?

And do get a bank Pin. that is the last line of defense and even jmods cannot
see what your bank pin is.
