    Greetings Prisoners

    We've been hearing rumours that “session tokens” are being used to compromise accounts.

    Session tokens are located in your “latest log” as well as other locations and players hoping to compromise an account will often make any excuse for you to voluntarily show it to them, such as asking to see your “latest.log”.

    Example: You're about to do a trade and the player says "I need to see your logs to make sure you're not messaging someone that you're going to scam me". Consider it a scam and attempt to compromise your acct.

    Players should note:
    • Do NOT show your Latest.log to any individual especially when “confirming a deal”
    • Do NOT share your minecraft/Cosmic Client files with another individual
    • Do NOT share anything with your session token in it to another individual
    Players are once again STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to have 2fa or 2 Step Verification active on ANY of our servers.

    If you are unsure how to activate /2fa on our servers you can follow these basic step by step instructions (note we recommend using Authy as your authentication app, as well setting up a Master Password and activating the Windows Authy app)

    https://wiki.cosmicpvp.com/wiki/2_Step_Verification#In-Game_Two-Step_Verification

    Remember: In ANY situation where your IP changes (such as if your account get’s compromised) your /2fa will prevent that individual from accessing any active planet, and they will be unable to even move/type in the hubs.

    Also on prisons and pvp, you can disable "remember ip" so you are prompted to enter it every single time. This is for irl friends who thinking getting you perm banned is a great prank.

    and you loose your 2fa codes and are forever locked out from the server. Or don't use 2fa, use a good password and if your account is compromised. Accept that you lost your items and it's your fault and go here, get a new password and learn form your mistake and you won't be locked out forever.

    2fa punishes the innocent.

    2fa is very annoying if your ip changes everytime your internet goes down.
