I recently made a post about my account which was banned for botting by a hacker. Its unbanned but my question is if the hacker who hacked into my account two times, has my security info and could potentially recover the acc, is there nothing I can do to protect it?

I already set up the Authenticator, new email but if he has my old info he can easily recover it. Need advice what I should do cause I don't wanna lose all my money/acc etc.

Hey there,

If the hacker has access to for example your recovery questions or the first password, account creation date it will be easier to get hacked again.

Using the authenticator is a good thing, so are the account security tips.

Is your computer secure too? How did you get hacked? Putted your login details on a fake website of RuneScape? Used a third part client?
I don't have a signature, but wanted to have some content here.

Hey Botax.

To answer your question , do they need a lot more information then that to recover your account , since you already got it unbanned and hopefully secured , would that information they knew be pinned as "Known by others then the Creator" so that can't be used again.

Make sure your email is not used for anything else even for any other RuneScape accounts, and make sure to ensure it has the 2 step factor on it for better protection with back up methods you can use if you ever get stuck out of your email.

For more email security information can be found here: Keeping your email secure

You should be fine once you have all of this :)

Yes, I made a brand new email for my account and got 2 step factor. But, he hacked me in 2015, I quit at the time so wasn't aware and 2017 I think. I'm just worried he'll use the old info he might have to recover the account

Unless he sat beside you when you created the account and knows what internet
provider you used. And other such info that only the creator will know then it
does not matter if he paid for membership so he could bot on your account. Or
if he knew one or two passwords, Then he cannot get your account back thru
the appeal system.

Unless you are not the creator then well if they know the info then they can get it back.

But as Stevieeee said is it all about our emails , so sometimes when it looks like some one did recover our account , did they in fact use the registered email doing so ;)

But to my understanding would all that information from that time your account got Hijacked and to when you recovered it , would be stored as leaked information and can NOT be used for further recovery attempts . :)
