SQUARE ENIX ID and Password Security Measures

Recently, a small number of customers have reported that their accounts have been compromised. While the users’ financial information was not at risk at any time, our investigation suggests unauthorized access followed a pattern which exploited the use of identical log-in information across multiple online services.

To maximize account security, we are advising all account holders to follow these best practices:
• Do not use the same log-in information for multiple online services.
• Do not use passwords that include readily identifiable information such as phone numbers or birth dates.
• Changing passwords regularly is highly recommended.
• Do not use unknown programs or visit suspicious websites that have the potential of spreading malware such as viruses and spyware.
• Do not open emails or attached files when you do not know who sent them.
• Conduct regular computer scans viruses, spyware and malware.

Use of a SQUARE ENIX Security Token with a SQUARE ENIX account can greatly diminish the likelihood of an account being compromised. We strongly recommend this strategy in helping to secure all SQUARE ENIX accounts.
