Fly Safe With Account Safety

Posted by Flapjack on February 9, 2018 at 2:00 PM

Hi - long time no see. Perhaps some of you remember me: Flapjack! One of the Toon Troopers of Toontown, and the officially appointed Safety Officer of the town. Did I tell you that my middle name is actually "Account Safety"? I think it's French. Yep, Flapjack "Account Safety" Thunderscreech!

Flapjack teaches a lesson about how to 'Fly Safe With Account Safety.'

Last time I stopped by, I taught you how to keep your account S.A.F.E. here in Toontown. Since then, I've spent my time traveling all around the Tooniverse to learn about the wonders of safety around the world.

I visited landmarks such as the Perfectly Sturdy Tower of Pisa (It's the short one next to that dangerous leaning tower) and the world's largest traffic cone (also known as the Eiffel Tower), but what taught me most was the most famous safety landmark of all: Airports.

You heard me right! I mean, who gives better lessons about safety than flight attendants? I've taken the lessons I've learned in the sky and brought them back here to Toontown. Listen closely, as it may just come in handy one day!

Locked Computer Icon

Please keep your arms, legs, and Toons inside your own account...
If you keep your arms and legs inside your own account rather than mucked up with someone else's, you won’t risk losing it. As appealing as it may be, sharing your account with the chair kicker in seat 4B isn’t the best idea in the world -- even if they're a close friend.

Remember, Toontown is 100% free! You can register as many accounts as your little heart desires, so, why not have your own account instead of running the risk of sharing one?

Safe Icon

Make sure all information is safely stored in the overhead bin...
Make sure to remember your username and password, and keep it to yourself! While you can always reset your username and password on the login page, it’ll be much harder for the Toon Council to help you restore your account if you forget your email as well.

If you use your primary email for Toontown, it should be much easier to remember! You could also save a little note on your desktop of your account email, or write it down on a piece of paper to put in a safe place. If you ever get locked out of your account and don't know what to do, just click the big "Help" button on the website!

Fastened Email Icon

At this time, please put your seat back and fasten your email..
Email security is just as important as security for your account! ToonGuard utilizes your email, and so do password changes. Since Toontown doesn't collect your real name, your email acts like your identity. If your email isn’t secured, that may be a gateway for someone else to get into your account. (That’s not good.)

Check out your email provider's additional safety options and try enabling them. Options like security questions, phone verification, and Two-Factor Authentication are all tools that most email providers have to keep your account safe.

Two-Step Login Icon

Turn on your cell phones and other security devices...
You heard me right! Toontown has several extra security features available to you. If you enable these extra security options, it may be a little bit of a hassle, but you’ll certainly keep Mr. 4B away.

ToonGuard, which is enabled for all accounts by default, checks to see if you're logging in from your normal location. If you’re outside of your primary location (Like the airport bathroom - I’m looking at you 4B), it will verify that it’s you by sending a special code to your email address. You can also review your verified ToonGuard locations, and disable certain locations if you don't recognize them!

Two-Step Login takes just a little bit longer to set up and connect, but, once you do, it’s clear skies ahead! Two-Step Login allows you to use a short code from a second device to verify it truly is you. You can use a cell phone, tablet, or even carrier pigeon! (Okay, maybe not the last one.)

Report Icon

Report anything suspicious to your flight attendant...
Hey, that’s me! If you see anything that you may think is suspicious, such as someone selling their Toon, trying to trick others into sharing information, or even blatantly stealing an account -- let us know by Contacting Support! If we’re able to catch someone before they cause a problem, it would sure help you and all the other Toons.

Support Icon

In an emergency, Toontown Support can be used as life preservers...
Toontown Support is dedicated to ensuring your account is safe and secure. If we notice something fishy, we'll temporarily lock your account until we hear from you to make sure everything is okay. If you're in a sticky situation like Sticky Lou contact us, and we’ll be able to help fix the problem and give advice as needed!

I’d like to thank you for paying attention during our safety briefing. I know you probably don’t love account safety as much as I do, but by taking a few extra precautions, your Toons and my neighbors will be safe! The last thing we want is 4B to get into your account; that’s just scary.

Until next time, safe travels!

Uh... Who's 4B?

Better to be safe than sorry

Jeremy said on February 9, 2018 at 2:25 PM
oh okay

Quentin McQuack said on February 9, 2018 at 2:25 PM
I already knew, but thanks for the reminder. Better safe then sorry!

Rosie said on February 9, 2018 at 2:26 PM
Lol, happy to have my own account now!

Amazing!!

Steam Powered Dog said on February 9, 2018 at 3:13 PM
Wonderful! I'm glad these are posted! It helps give more safety and locking someones account for good measures is a nice thing to know too.

Wow, for once I actually liked reading about internet safety! The analogy about being on an airplane was pretty priceless (especially the parts where you mention the "chair kicker at 4B"). Keep being Toontastic and Waddle O-- oh, wait, wrong game.

Chompi said on February 9, 2018 at 3:31 PM
Definitely a good reminder for the younger players! :)

Tricky Fuzzybump said on February 9, 2018 at 3:37 PM
OK

Pixelpainter said on February 9, 2018 at 3:50 PM
Uhh, I'm pretty sure that you can't reset your username, but I would love to see that added!

This was an actually entertaining PSA on account safety, thank you.

School said on February 9, 2018 at 6:21 PM
Say, "Flapjack" looks like someone familiar...

Wolf said on February 9, 2018 at 6:34 PM
Woops, I dropped my safe on a cold caller... Is that close enough?

Jake Cheesey Marble said on February 9, 2018 at 7:29 PM
Account safety is for the protection of all accounts. Let's stick to these rules!

Little Daffy Weaselgoober said on February 9, 2018 at 8:19 PM
Toons of the world.... fasten your seatbelts..?

Susan Twinklepaws said on February 9, 2018 at 10:38 PM
Wow! So many helpful tips!

May said on February 9, 2018 at 11:23 PM
Thanks, Flapjack! It's always nice to known you guys hold our safety to such high standards!

Orange Mouse said on February 9, 2018 at 11:36 PM
This was fun to read!

Eternal Darkness said on February 10, 2018 at 4:26 AM
thank you for the safety reminder its good to know these things. It is also better to have your own accounts instead of sharing because you will feel amazing once you've maxed everything and feel proud of how far you've come.

Johnny said on February 10, 2018 at 7:14 AM
Haha! This is funny! Just in time for me to go to Mexico, on a plane.

Xinxxie said on February 10, 2018 at 9:59 AM
Are you planning for some kind of plot twist where Flapjack is actually Slappy in "disguise"?

Skipper Whiskerflip said on February 10, 2018 at 10:51 AM
Yes, I think you might be right about the duck looking like Slappy.

I'd like to thank you for addressing internet safety in an interesting way. I have a lot of respect for people who don't talk down to others, and you're one of them.
