How do I keep my Free Fire account safe?

1. Keep your login details confidential
          • Do not share your login details with anyone, including Garena staff, family or friends. Your account password must be confidential.

2. Be careful of who you share information with
          • Phishers are constantly on the lookout for valuable personal and financial information (e.g. passwords, credit card numbers, etc.). Be careful of who you share your information with and keep your account secure by following these tips:

 

• DON'Ts
          • Don't respond to calls, emails, or other messages requesting personal login or financial information, such as your password, one-time password (OTP), credit card information and social security number. Garena will never ask for your login information via call, SMS, email, in-game chats, or other messaging services.
          • Don't enter critical information over unsecured networks (e.g. public wifi) or on public computers. Cybercriminals can potentially intercept these channels and obtain your information.
          • Don't click on suspicious links in chats or emails which may be a phishing site serving to collect personal information from unsuspecting victims.

• DOs
          • Keep your login details private. When in doubt, contact Garena through our support desk here.

What should I do if I believe that I have been phished through Free Fire?

• Phishing is an attempt to gain access to your account by stealing (or tricking you into revealing) your sensitive information such as passwords and credit card information.

• Phishing emails / SMS / messages may have the following characteristics:
          • Requests personal or financial information such as your credit card number
          • Contains unsolicited attachments
          • Contains a forged link
          • Urges you to act quickly
          • Uses a generic greeting such as "Dear User"
          • Is unprofessional, contains spelling mistakes and bad grammar
          • However, not all phishing emails / SMS / messages will have these characteristics, so please take care and never share your personal or financial information via such channels. 

If you suspect that you have been phished, contact us through our support desk here.
