Hey guys,

I've seen a lot of these streams coming on Twitch recently. Essentially, either phishers proclaim something ridiculous like 'Double XP for Old School codes!', and then provide a link in the stream to 'redeem'.

Please do NOT click the link or provide details on that link - it's a phishing link and someone will probably hijack your account (given that you've provided them with details).

Old School will NEVER send you a code with which to 'activate' Double XP - it's something inherently programmed into the game, and, by any accounts, there are no plans fron the Old School team to do Double XP at this moment. I'm sure they'll let you know if they are.

Please also enable the Authenticator and set up a Bank PIN; this will protect your account even if someone knows your account password.

Please check the official Twitch page for official stream timings, and if something is too good to be true, then I'm sorry to say it probably is.

If you have tried to redeem on one of these links, please visit this page and we'll try to help you regain access to your account.

Thank you again for making a thread like this one, JD.
Could you please «Sticky» the one on the Oldschool Forums? Otherwise it will get lost. :(

Unfortunately many Oldschool players don't take a look at this forum section.

Awareness is the best defense players can have when it comes to phishing.

Thanks for helping to raise awareness about the Twitch phishing JD. :)

Also people, please not that JAG alone is not safe, so please do use the authenticator.
JAG can be mislead if the person knows what he's doing.

The best defence is to try to log in to a false account with a false password. If you are able to log in then you know it's safe. If you don't log in, still mistrust it.
