Webkinz Password Changes

There is an online story circulating about a Webkinz data breach with WWIDs & passwords for Webkinz World. As a result, they have put in place a requirement that all players must update their account password before logging into Webkinz World. Players will only have to do this once to ensure the security of all player accounts.

They have streamlined this process so when you log in with your current password, you will be given a prompt telling you to update your password with a new password of a minimum of 8 characters.

Here is a link to the article that dee shared: https://www.zdnet.com/article/hacker-leaks-23-million-usernames-and-passwords-from-webkinz-childrens-game/

    well i have one acct changed
    and someone asked how i pizza palace
    buy shoes
    buy extra dough maker
    buy extra topping table
    buy extra oven

    i have done the upgrade the dough and topping makers, but they do not seem any faster to me……….i like the extra topping table as it can hold doughs waiting to go in the oven as you still make more dough

    and on the local farm report (meaning my house)
    we planted our zucchini, cucumber and carrot sprouts we had started in our little greenhouse
    gonna plant some jalapenoes and green onion sprouts tomorrow.
    green onion sprouts are from the ends that you cut off when you chop them.
    just put them in water and they sprout! then put in a pot of dirt
    ta da

    If you’re like me and already changed your passwords, just change them right back to the one you recently changed it to after update your account password for the second time.

    MISS GAGA
    cuz you be our me professional
    i see some states are going to offer the covid test even if they do not have symptoms
    what are the pros and cons of doing it?

    and what kind of medical training can i do in the future that does not actually involve sticking people? i just want the knowledge for my fam and neighbors
    thanks for this and all that you do

    dee..such a new and dangerous virus… still so much unknown… but I try to listen to our state’s medical director of public health when I am not working..
    She says there is not enough testing being done… why ? … because there are not enough of the reagent needed to do the test…. According to what I have learned there are many people who are asymptomatic but have the virus… so they are out in public… spreading the virus… not sheltering at home..not safe distancing… or have such mild symptoms not necessarily equating symptoms to being the corona virus… example being the meat processing plant with ? 500 employees testing positive…I am an advocate of testing as many people as possible… Our governor announced he is opening up hospitals for elective surgeries and outpatient procedures beginning May 1st…I will be heading back 5 days a week until we can get our patients taken care of…
    dee… how about a basic EMT coarse ?? offers lots of knowledge medical and trauma … or maybe basic first aid class… would give you the basics of what to do for minor injuries..illnesses… Hope that helps…
    Thanks dee ! ♥

    Good morning all!

    moms (and everyone)—Thanks so much for all the awesomeness this place is! :)

    Thankfully, I only changed my original acct. password before they came out with the forced change. Spent yesterday changing passwords…then decided a few needed to be something different and changed those again. I have sticky notes all over my desk. It will take a while to get used to these.

    Finished pizza palace on one acct! yay! That may be all I do.

    gaga—Stella and I are well and happy at home! Been busy the last few days with training. The place I took her too is trying to do online training. Trainer is making video tutorials and we watch them through her website. It’s much more difficult to learn that way, but at least it’s something and keeps us busy. We had some crazy weather. Snow, then last weekend was absolutely gorgeous! Dh and I sat outside and had cocktails on the patio Sunday afternoon. And we both got a sunburn! Now it’s cold and rainy. Such as Spring! Happy to hear you can go back to work next week. Although I hope you can go back to your normal schedule this summer. Our gov. extended the stay at home order until May 26! But they are allowing the local farmers market to open soon. Will wait and see how busy it gets. I have a feeling it will be mobbed. Hope your mom is hanging in there. Loved hearing that himself called and you got to have a long chat.

    Stella says HI :) Barkbox had special add on toys for April 20…hehe

    That’s a good idea. I have a Chopped Kitchen lol. I might could do a Doctor Who one or something. I could get an estore phone booth and use the alien crash site wallpaper!! I also did a Little Shop of Horrors room with the flower shop we got at valentines day lol.

    dee—’greenies’ lol Rental college books is a great idea. Best we could do was buying used.

    april – that would be such a cute room!

    i like that idea – a favorite tv show or movie

    i just did a dumb thing – i checked to see if a wwid was available – i wondered if the person who had “momskinz” when i joined maybe let the account expire, & the answer is yes! i now have a new account “momskinz” – i need that like a hole in my head, but there’s something so nice about having it :mrgreen:

    i’m so dumb, but oh well :lol:

    Hi to everyone! I am trying to finish another college course right now so I haven’t been on much other than to get limited time stuff and update the picture guide. I wish the estore would release a full list of items for the mystery type boxes and bags the second anyone can get them, but they always wait until the full release.

    i just decided to start a town square with the pizza palace, but . . . can anyone tell me why we have two flower shops?

    we have the kinzville flower shop & the sweetheart flower shop

    but we don’t have very many buildings that aren’t in snow either – i can only find the halloween costume shop, the new pizza palace restaurant, & the two flower shops . . . hmmmmmm we need more!

    we need a diner front & a toy store that aren’t wintery – do we have anything like those?

    April and Littleleaf – I would not type in your old passwords to use again. That information is in the hands of the hackers. The whole purpose to change the passwords is to protect your accounts!

    I was one of those that changed my passwords on Monday. Then the forced, but necessary, password change on Wednesday. It was a bit of a hassle, but it is done. Now I just have to remember all of them.

  40. 40 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    April 23, 2020 @ 6:53 pm

    moms – my original post went to trash. Could you just delete it? I just re-posted shortened version.

  41. 41 april1013 (wwid: zeker1013) said,

    April 23, 2020 @ 7:22 pm

    moms—I think it would be cute too. You could use the island wallpaper and flooring. That big psi tall tree…I think from a different lemur, for the center. Packing boxes on the shore for the crates they arrived in. I don’t think it’s dumb at all!!! That so cool you finally have a momskinz account! YAY!

    bepsy—Of course!! I will send shortly. I agree, I wish they would just tell us what’s in the bags/boxes as soon as they pre-sale.

    Gwenda—Congrats on the Gerbera Daisy Cottage too!

    Sheba—I did not type that sentence correctly. I promise I changed all my passwords. :) When I signed on this morning and my brain automatically typed my old password I’ve had for years. It’s going to be a while before the new one is automatic. I have sticky notes on my desk and I still didn’t remember. lol Thanks for looking out for us!

  42. 42 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

What a new world be are living in ! Nice to be able to sit outside and get some fresh air and sun ! Weather here remains very cold… but hopefully soon the sun will shine ! Hung my bird feeders on Monday… hoping for the arrival of the Baltimore Orioles… no luck yet but quite a few goldfinches are flocking to thistle feeder ! When you have an extra Lemonade Gumball I would love one… I am a food collector…thanks ! I bought a few boxes and received a Zum Hot Air Balloon.. the Gerbera Daisy Cottage and the Pink Rose Bench…and some kind of pink flower water feature but not sure what it is called… Will check next time I log in …
    Keeping a list of new passwords next to my computer…will take quite a while to relearn without having to look !
    LL… thanks for posting codes !
    Bepsy… Good luck finishing your class… and thanks for keeping us all informed with Webkinz Guide… I know it is a lot of work !
    moms… Nice you being to use momskinz ! You are the one and only !
    dee… happy your dd has completed her finals.. I am sure she is relieved to have that finished ! Let the celebration begin !!
    Sheeba… Hope you can find some extra time to play in WW ! Feel badly you
    must sneak to have a little stress relief ! Happy you are able to come here and visit !
    Chants… You OK ? Seems like it has been a bit since you stopped by ! Hope all is well !
    Will continue on Pizza Palace and complete a second account… then I am done with that ! Way too time intensive…

    gaga—Stella’s all time favorite toy is a spiky squeaky soccer ball. She’s had it since she was a puppy. She tears all her toys up except that one. It makes the most high-pitched annoying squeak you have ever heard! LOL Will send the lemonade gumballs tomorrow! :) I hope himself’s finals go well and you get a nice long chat with him.

    nita—Thanks.:) I would love to trade for the loving life shoes…sending snappy faux leopard boots shortly.

    Yay, thanks for the code Muffin!

    Passwords changed (what a nightmare)…

    Two Pizza Palace Challenges down (and two more to go)…

    Handmade thank yous delivered and sent out to friends and family…

    Finally got an hour or so of actually RESTFUL sleep today after weeks of being exhausted but not being able to sleep…

    So, that’s where I’m at right now.

    I hope everyone is still doing well and staying safe!! Off to do dailies for now!

    chicken noodle soup/crackers…. Made a big pot of soup and froze it…
    To any cottage collectors among us……..Check out the new pet being offered to replace the Fairykinz Kitten ( deluxe membership) To being May 1st…The
    PSI is a purse cottage… it is really cute !
    April… texted himself last night hoping he was up for a chat…. NFL draft continued last night and he still has 3 more finals which he is studying for…
    so I guess his “gaga” will have to wait…Hope you and Stella are doing well !
    and having fun…. my development’s Canada geese have hatched a couple of gaggles or batches of goslings…. so cute when they are babies… but can
    become messy….
    moms… pizza is always good… there will never be a more boring time for those who are sheltering at home…so pizza sounds good !
    Otterkinz… happy you were able to get some much needed sleep… although doesn’t like like a very long sleep…short nap maybe !

    i wish we knew what is going to happen with schools – i am hearing that schools are being told to prepare to remain virtual until January, then i am hearing that school will start in the fall very differently – smaller classes, distanced seating, alternate schedules, etc. some colleges are evaluating housing & classrooms & class sizes
