Title: Reminder - Privacy Settings
Post by: nCogNeato on April 14, 2010, 12:21:12 AM
With the recent increase in Spam / Phish / Hack messages plaguing Xbox Live, I think now is a good time for everyone to review their current Privacy Settings.

1.  CLICK HERE (https://live.xbox.com/Account/Settings/)
2.  Scroll to the bottom of the page.
3.  Under "Friends List" select "Blocked".
4.  Click "Save".

Now, whenever someone on your Friends List gets phished, the phisher cannot harass your other friends.  If everyone did this, phishing would no longer be the widespread problem it is today.  Do your part and help make Xbox Live a better place.   ;)

The next time one of us gets a "FREE MICROSOFT POINTS!" message from some random person, we'll know who to blame.   ;)

Indeed, getting the message is one thing, falling for said message has got nothing to do with me.   :)

Thanks, Maib.

I pretty sure none of us are going to fall for a phishing scam.  But I'm also pretty sure we're all tired of receiving these annoying messages from the strangers on our friend's friend's friend's friendlist.

I'm obviously being stupid, I can't see "Friends List" at the bottom of the page anywhere!
