Many Habbo users have received fake emails from people claiming to be Habbo staff. In these emails the recipients were told to click a link to become part of the new “Habbo X Program”. We would like to reassure you that there is no such thing as The Habbo X Program, it was a scheme that was abolished a few years ago.

Here are some safety tips to ensure that you keep your Habbo accounts the safest they can be!
1. Make sure every email you receive claiming to be from Habbo is from Habbo. You can tell this by the senders email address. If it’s really from Habbo it should be from firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Don’t click any suspicious links. If you’re on Habbo and someone tells you to click on a link and you have no idea what that site is, don’t click on it.
3. Don’t join fake Habbo sites, aka retros. Most of these are created to infect viruses onto you or to acquire your password.
4. Don’t fill out “Free coins or furni” surveys even if you’re promised hundreds of coins. These are websites made by Habbo users and promise to give you coins or furni if you give your username and password. Once they have your username and password they sign into your account and steal everything you have. If you’re really desperate for coins and furni, just participate in some Habbox Events!
5. Whenever you’re asked to sign in, make sure the website you’re on is Habbo.com! Some sites are designed to look like Habbo but the url is fake.
6. This is probably the most obvious one, but don’t give your password out. If you ever suspect your account has been compromised, change your password immediately and report it to Habbo.
Remember, these are just guide lines and you should use your best judgment to keep safe.
