Password security recommendations

To keep your InstaBET Account and your online activities, in general, private and secure, we advise to follow the recommendations below:

  1. Do not set your device (PC, Smartphone, Tablet, etc.) to remember your passwords. Even though this feature is provided as a way of convenience, this is one of the most frequent ‘hacks‘.
  2. Do not write your password down where somebody can find it.
  3. Password-protect your Windows system so that when it goes to sleep, you have to enter a password to get back in.
  4. Do not leave your account logged on if others can access your computer/device.
  5. Always choose a strong password
    • Never use a word that can be found in a dictionary. 
    • Make your password at least 8 characters long, the longer the password, the more secure it is.
    • Combine letters, numbers, and symbols.
    • There are several online tools to automatically generate secure passwords. Use them.
  1. Never share your InstaBET Account password with anyone. You would not let someone else access your online banking account, so why let someone else access your InstaBET Account?
  2. Do not use the same password in any two locations. We understand it makes it easy to have the same password everywhere but it also makes it easy for hackers.
  3. When changing passwords, never re-use an older password, nor any variant of it.
  4. Do not fall prey to scams where others want to access your account. If an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 
  5. Never log into Windows to play as Administrator or equivalent. Use a restricted user account to ensure keyloggers or Trojans have a much more difficult time gaining access.
  6. Windows default Firewall will not protect you sufficiently, as it only blocks attacks from the outside from getting in. Use one of the following: Norton, McAfee, ZoneAlarm, Kaspersky. Additionally, use at least two good spyware scanners.
  7. Virus/Trojan/Spyware Scanners only detect things they know about. It is still possible to catch a customized piece of spyware or a keylogger that has never been reported to the scanner authors. Therefore, we advise you to use good judgement when deciding what to download.
  8. Do not play from anybody else’s computer/device.
