My Nintendo Account Got Hacked!

I wake up like any other day during the corona times, I get up, make my coffee and catch up on some notifications. Interestingly enough I see someone logged into my Nintendo account for the first time on a device 2-hours ago. I of course immediately changed my Nintendo password and log out all devices. I also noticed one person logged in from the U.K. and the other was from India, but I’m in the United States.

This isn’t a one-off instance of this happening, apparently the last couple months a lot of Nintendo accounts have been getting hacked.

Check out this official Nintendo community forum thread for some more insight on how large the situation is. Here are some examples:

Even recently last month there was an attack on Fortnite players through exploiting PayPal.

With all these Nintendo accounts being compromised, I wanted to explain a few ways to keep your Nintendo account safe, and what you should do. I know what you’re thinking, “This guy just got his account hijacked briefly, and he wants to tell us how to keep our accounts safe now?”. Yes, with this happening to me, it makes it easier to explain to people steps I took to re-secure my account and what steps I will be taking to try to prevent this from happening.

  1. Make sure your Nintendo account is linked to an email account that you frequently check or receive notifications on your phone for. If any sudden changes happen or a new device is logged into your account, Nintendo will automatically send you an email to notify you.
  2. Change your password and setup 2-Step Verification. This step alone would have prevented my account from being hijacked. 2-Step Verification is a great security method that many companies use now to combat hackers. It can be a little frustrating to setup for some, but in the long run it will save you a major headache.
  3. Check on the Nintendo website if anyone is logged into your account from a specific device right now. Someone may already be using your account and you don’t even realize it. You have the option to log everybody out.

Keep your account safe Nintendo fans!

Grand Theft Auto 5 – Crispy Review

Recently rockstar just imposed on all of us their new strip club DLC,  reporting new cars,  possibly weapons, as well as money.  (gta v cash of course)  So we have received an edge in the past DLC’s with money on our profile. But this is to good to be true,  to find out more on the strip club DLC please visit their website.

 

So my personal review of the game will probably be one sided and an over the edge to say the least,  it’s in game mechanics are far beyond fast paced but most of our awareness handles that really well. Fast cars are not easy to come by but there’s free cars that can be upgraded with another of hustle by earning cash in Lamar missions and bank heists.  Their always coming up with new game modes and from my understanding Lamar missions go on for as long as you own the game. Beating the story mode is definitely interesting to me for I’ve completed it with no missions left at a whopping 92.3% but with that being said I have no clue what else there is to do besides stunt jumps and those are impossible to find.

Monster Hunter World is the best when it comes to DLC!

Monster Hunter World is receiving it’s first DLC free update (excluding cross-over DLCs). Now if the free part alone wasn’t enough to get your attention, they will also be introducing a new monster to hunt, Deviljho. This is much needed since MH: World has the weakest roster of monsters to hunt although makes up for it in other ways.
