Don’t Play With Fire!

January 31, 2009

While playing the Resident Evil 5 demo tonight, I got a message from a buddy of mine warning me not to join Playfire, as it is being investigated for violating Xbox’s TOS.  They ask users as they are registering for sensitive Xbox and email related information, and people usually don’t think twice about handing that out for social networking sites.  I certainly didn’t.

Now, I regret joining that site and warn others not to bother with it.  Keep your information private!

If you’ve already joined it like I have, go through your Playfire profile and remove your gamertag, take out your email address in the Settings section and change your password to something that doesn’t even relate to any others you have.  As for your Windows Live information, change your password immediately (I did it through hotmail) as well as your secret question.
