Accounts "stolen"

Recommended Posts

Everytime I finish an account on tutorial island and get to the main area, it logs me out and gives me the message "account locked as we have suspected its been stolen."

I don't use any script for tutorial island, I do it by hand. I also use different proxies for every single account that I make,

The other thing I can't figure out is I use proxies from the same place that my other accounts are currently botting on, and I have never had this problem.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong and why the last three accounts with fresh, private, paid for proxies are getting flagged as stolen? 

Thanks.

can you explain to me why that would be a problem? Wouldn't it be the opposite, wouldn't they suspect my accounts have been stolen if there is 5 accounts being made on the same IP? How would they even know the accounts were connected if they're all on different IP's. That makes no sense...

As it has been said many times on the forums, finishing tutorial island from a proxy address will result in the account getting locked, regardless if it was completed by hand or with a script.

This is confusing to me, as I've created over 25+ accounts using proxies right off of tutorial island, and these are the first 3 accounts that have been locked off tutorial island. In fact, it is the first accounts the I've ever had locked on suspicion of being "stolen."

How would I go about making accounts then if I don't use a proxy right off the bat? Are you suggesting that I use my home IP address until I complete tutorial island?

 

I guess what I'm asking is how to complete tutorial island without an account being locked, as well as not exposing my home IP address?

You either:

-Get new proxies.

-Create multiple accounts on that proxy until one doesn't get locked.

-Unlock the accounts.

When you say "get new proxies" are you saying get them from a different source? Because i tried three different proxies and they were all locked, which again, after 25+ proxies from the same place I was rather surprised.

I have unlocked 2 of the accounts so far, are they now at a bigger risk of getting locked again or banned? Will I have to do a recovery every single time I make a new account now?

I guess I just don't understand what just all of a sudden made them start thinking my accounts were being stolen, after so long of doing the exact same thing with no problems at all.

They flag datacenter IP's/etc that seem to be associated with bots. Your accounts will probably get locked more and more frequently the more accounts you have banned on an IP range/from a single location.

You either get them from a new location, or spend a few minutes to unlock each account. They don't care if you do it by hand. If you're a legit player creating a new account, you'll take the 2 minutes to unlock the account. In the far more likely event you're a bot farmer, that's a few minutes per account which can be a hassle/deterrent.

Thus far I've seen zero effect on bans when unlocking accounts.

Okay that makes me feel better knowing that other people are having the same problem with needless locking of accounts. 

Does this happen for you? Like out of 10 accounts you would make how many would usually get locked on suspicion of people stolen?

Thanks for all the information btw really helpful.

Happens to just about everyone using proxies/non residential IP's. All depends on where you get them/where they're located. It's pretty common though

Hey right on man thanks for all the info. I'm glad its common, it had me freaking out a bit because this is the first time its ever happened to me before after creating quite a few accounts over the past few years. 

Thanks again!

    • Over the past few months, I’ve been working diligently on a new project - TRiBot X. Everything has been written from the ground up, with all of the best practices of software engineering. Every aspect of TRiBot has been re-imagined to support three main goals: flexibility, useability, and reliability.

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

      Love,

    • Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!

      Why?

      Increased reliability - less server errors


      Increased availability - less downtime


      Increased security - keeping us and you secure


      Increased capacity - ability to serve you better


      Increased speed - less waiting for things to load


      Faster development - server and service updates will come faster


      What are the changes?

      Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service)


      Distributed computing


      Load balancing


      Git management of server files and filesystem


      Redis caching


      How?

      AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances)


      AWS ElastiCache (Redis)


      AWS Load Balancing


      AWS EFS (Elastic file system)


      Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.

      Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.

    • This release will:

      Fix prayers and world hopper API (Thanks @JoeDezzy1 and @erickho123)


      Improve banking API (Thanks @Encoded)


      Adds methods for returning and using Java Lists, rather than arrays


      Slightly randomizes some hardcoded behaviour


      Removes sleeps from waitConditions; the efficiency saving potential is negligible in these use-cases, therefore cleaner code is preferable


      Other back-end improvements





      Note: If you are using LG, please restart both the RS client and TRiBot.
