RuneScape Account Security
Password Tips

A good password should be easily remembered by yourself but not easily guessed by anyone else. Choose a password that has both letters and numbers in it for the best security but don't make it so hard that you'll forget it! Never write your password down or leave it in a text file on your computer, someone could find it easily! Never tell anyone your password in RuneScape, not even a Moderator of any kind.

RuneScape Authenticator

The Authenticator is the new system to protect your account. It will create an added security measure to your account, and means that when you login from a new PC you are required to enter a code from an app on your phone. Visit for information on how to setup the new system.

Other Security Tips

Never give your password to ANYONE. This includes your friends, family and moderators in game.

Never leave your account logged on if you are away from the computer, it only takes 5 seconds to steal your account!
