This guide was created for the purpose of ensuring each HIA Member is aware of keeping their slack accounts safe and avoid leaking out any personal information.
How to stay safe on slack? Although Slack doesn't provide much safety features, there are many other ways you can keep your account safe as well as your personal information.
Do NOT click any suspicious links posted on Slack Channels. Non-HIA related links are no longer allowed to be posted, so please be wary of what you are clicking. Even if it’s from a friend - everything must be uploaded directly from your device through the Slack Upload.
Exceptions: Rabbit (respective to events), Youtube Videos, Lightshot, Imgur, and Gyazo captures, Google Forms/Docs related to HIA and HIA related links.
Do NOT post any personal photos or pictures that exposes your location. Please check before you post!
Do NOT have your email address, phone number, or SKYPE visible on your SLACK Profile.
Keep your Social Media accounts private! And do NOT use your full name on Slack.
Rule to remember: §4 - Social Media usernames, accounts, phone numbers, and other personal contact information are not to be placed anywhere on your Slack profile.
How to keep other members safe?
When requesting for a Slack Admin on #requests for a Slack signup, do NOT post the email/private information in #requests. Only DM the email a Slack Admin.
Keep your posts age appropriate and do NOT post your friends’ Social Media!
Make sure your Slack login information is different from your habbo login.
Use your habbo username when submitting emails. (Refrain from using personal emails.)
Change your password every few weeks or monthly!
Protect your account using Two-Factor Authentication Another way of protecting your Slack account is by setting up the Two-Factor Authentication, which in the event of your account being compromised, only you can sign in. In order to set up Two-Factor Authentication, you need a mobile phone to receive a verification code through text message, or through an authentication app. Set up the Two-Factor Authentication on your Slack account by following these steps:
On your slack sidebar, press the drop down arrow next to Habbo Intelligence Agency.
Next, press “Profile & Account” and the Workspace Directory should appear on the right hand side of your screen.
Press the 3-dotted button (More Actions) and then select “Open Account Settings”.
On the next screen, expand the Two-Factor Authentication list and begin the process by pressing “Set Up Two-Factor Authentication”.
The next few screens will ask for your Slack Password, if you would like to use SMS Text Message or an authentication app to receive the verification code, and finally to enter the verification code.
When you are done, the Account Settings page will show that your Two-Factor Authentication is Active.
My Slack has been hacked, what do I do?
If your account is still logged in, click the drop-down arrow on your Slack sidebar. Press “Profile & Account” and then the 3-dotted button on the Workspace Directory, and click “Open Account Settings”.
Scroll to the bottom of your screen, and press the RED “Sign out all other sessions” button. This should give you some time to change your password by scrolling back up and going to the Password heading.
If your password has been changed by the person who has compromised your account, press the “Deactivate your account” button and seek help at the Help Desk in HQ.
