How to protect my account?

11 March, 2024

By following simple security rules, you can easily protect your account from intruders.


The password is the «key» to the tank. Here are a few tips that can help you create a strong password and keep your account safe from hijacking:

Additional Account Protection


You can secure your account by linking your email to it. Under Settings icon.jpg Settings there is a subsection Account, where you can specify your valid email. This email will receive an automatic email confirming the action. The result of binding the mail will be more protected from the change of password tank and completed the special mission “LINK YOUR EMAIL”.

Two-factor authentication

The idea of two-factor authentication (2FA) is that to enter the game, in addition to the standard username and password, you must also enter a special code that is generated in real time on your smartphone in a special application. The code changes every 30 seconds, during which it is necessary to enter the current code in the game. Unlike the mail binding, which just prevents the intruder from changing the password, 2FA provides account protection from hacking – unauthorized entry by third parties.

General tips to protect yourself from scammers

Don’t tell your password to anyone

The real employees of the Administration will never ask you for it.

Never enter your username and password for the game on third-party resources

All contests, special events, mini-games and promotions are held either inside the game or on websites containing the domain. In addition, you can find out about any of these events on the game’s official forum, on the main page of «Tanki Online» and in communities in social networks. Do not follow the links of players who promise to accrue crystals, report «news» about unprecedented discounts and new turrets with hulls. Clicking on such a link will lead you to a phishing site. If you enter your account information on a third-party site, you’re putting your account directly into the hands of phishers. Please be aware that your account will either be sold or used to test new cheats (in the latter case it will be impossible to get your blocked account back).

Ignore attempts to sell or buy accounts

Most hijackings occur when someone tries to sell or buy an account. In the first case, there is a risk of losing your account without the possibility of return, and in the second – to lose your money. Selling and transferring game accounts to third parties is prohibited by the user agreement and leads to the blocking of the account. Any data about the account can only be requested from the — game technical support mail.

Be vigilant

Do not give out the email address the account is registered to. Do not write it on the forum or in personal correspondence. Remember that if you lose control over your mailbox, you risk losing not only your game account, but also control over your e-wallets and plastic cards that were used to make payments.

If you suspect that your account data has fallen into the wrong hands, change the passwords for the account and the email (or the entire email) as soon as possible.

If you have already lost access to your account, immediately write to technical support. Once you’ve regained access to your account, think again about linking it to the two-factor authentication system.
