    Greetings Cosmonauts

    We've been hearing rumors that “session tokens” are being used to compromise accounts.

    Session tokens are located in your “latest log” as well as other locations and players hoping to compromise an account will often make any excuse for you to voluntarily show it to them, such as asking to see your “latest.log”.

    Example: You're about to do a trade and the player says "I need to see your logs to make sure you're not messaging someone that you're going to scam me". Consider it a scam and attempt to compromise your acct.

    Players should note:
    • Do NOT show your Latest.log to any individual especially when “confirming a deal”
    • Do NOT share your minecraft/Cosmic Client files with another individual
    • Do NOT share anything with your session token in it to another individual
    Players are once again STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to have 2fa or 2 Step Verification active on ANY of our servers.

    If you are unsure how to activate /2fa on our servers you can follow these basic step by step instructions (note we recommend using Authy as your authentication app, as well setting up a Master Password and activating the Windows Authy app)

    https://wiki.cosmicpvp.com/wiki/2_Step_Verification#In-Game_Two-Step_Verification

    Remember: In ANY situation where your IP changes (such as if your account get’s compromised) your /2fa will prevent that individual from accessing any active planet, and they will be unable to even move/type in the hubs.

    Use Authy. It's not like you have to type in your code everytime, only when your IP changes and like 1x per month if it doesn't change.

    Authy allows you to:
    Access from your PC
    Access from your phone
    Access from your laptop
    Access from the chrome extension
    Access from the windows app

    Add to that you get backup/scratch codes just in case.

    Seems silly to leave your account vulnerable because looking at your phone when your IP changes is too much work.

    Its not my point of view on 2fa, I personally think 2fa is amazing, its just that some people do not understand it when they lose their recovery codes or the whole authy login credentials
