There’s been a few hacked accounts recently operating in the classifieds. As Ryan posted a few days ago, please change your password and turn on the two step verification. https://www.rokslide.com/forums/threads/scammers-spammers-and-hackers.273252/
In addition I would like to ask for you to do this with any related accounts such as your email (for Rokslide), your payment service (pp, Venmo etc), any social media account that you might have linked to here (tapatalk). Please don’t use the same password for multiple accounts or variations of the password.

Let’s all do our part to keep our Rokslide accounts and classifieds as secure as possible and please report suspicious content.

TIA,
Tony

Local security firm suggests that in order to remember different passwords for different sites, you can use a password formula.

Like this

Common word or name, special character, website abbreviation, special character and then a common 4 or 5 digit number. The common name or digits will be used across multiple sites, the abbreviation and characters will remain constant and unique to every site.

Rokslide example

Username: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Password: Hunt.rok+12345


This allows you to use a unique password for every site that is easily remembered.

I change my first common name or last common digits quarterly and vary the lengths.
