Denne artikel vil give dig oplysninger om forskellige sikkerhedsindstillinger på xat og hvordan de virker. Selv om disse sikkerhedsindstillinger kan øge din kontos sikkerhed, bør du ikke stole helt på dem. Vi har også andre security guides du bør tjekke.
IMPORTANT: xat staff or volunteers will never ask you to reduce your account protection, nor any other security feature. If anyone asks you to reduce your account protection, they could be trying to access your account and steal your xats/days/powers.
There are three types of Account Protection on xat. This system is in place to prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to your account. The default type of protection is type 2.
To adjust these settings, go to https://xat.com/login. Once you have logged in successfully, scroll down to the security settings. Once you have selected the type of protection you want, click "Update security settings".
This type lets you log in from anywhere within your country without a security check email, even if you're using a different internet provider or IP address to your home location. This is the lowest level of protection. If you attempt to log in from a different country to your home location, you will receive E30/E64.
2 - Internet provider
This type restricts you to logging in from the same internet provider (e.g. Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner Cable) as your home location, although you can change locations or IP address. You are also required to log in through a security check email sent to the email address that you used to create your xat account. This email contains a special link that changes every time you log in, so you don't need to save it. This is the medium level of protection. If you randomly receive a login link via email when you have not attempted to log in, you should immediately change your account password. If you attempt to log in from a different internet provider to your home location, you will receive E30/E64.
3 - IP address
This type restricts you to logging in from the same IP address and location as your home location. You are also required to log in through a security check email, as described above. This is the highest level of protection. If you attempt to log in from a different IP address (e.g. a dynamic IP address) to your home location, you will receive E30/E64. If you attempt to log in from a different location to the one you selected type 3 at (i.e. your home location), you will receive E29 and be locked out of your account.
Account Protection Holds
Reducing your Account Protection type from 2 to 1 will place a 3-day hold on your account for security purposes. Reducing your type from 3 to 2 will not trigger this hold.
Hvis xat opdager uregelmæssigheder på din konto og mistænkter phishing på din konto, kan du blive blokeret fra at overføre og handel i 5 dage. Dette giver dig tid til at løse problemet og forhindrer phishere i at overføre dine xats eller dage. Dette kan ikke deaktiveres og gælder for alle konti.
Your account may also be held for 5 days if there's activity from a different location, internet provider or IP address to your home location.
As an extended layer of protection, you may consider enabling 2-step verification on the email address associated with your xat account, if your email address provider offers this service. This can stop users from stealing your xat account even when they know the password of your email address.
