Camfrog Security Tips

January 2nd, 2013

We have noticed a lot of people contacting our support team with questions or issues that are security related, and so wanted to just pass on a few security tips to help keep you safe.

1: Be extra cautious of phishing sites. Never enter your Camfrog account password in a website that is NOT camfrog.com – If you are ever suspicious of whether or not a website is genuine, you can Contact our support staff.

When clicking on a link in Camfrog you will see a URL Redirect page. If you see this page, that means the website you are going to is NOT a Camfrog website, and you should not enter your Camfrog account information there.

2: You should never share your Camfrog Pro activation code with another user. If more than one user logs in with your code, it will be deactivated, and we may not be able to provide a replacement, so be sure to keep it super secret.

3: Be careful when receiving files over IM. Sometimes people will try to send a virus or trojan disguised as a real file. Always use a virus/malware scanner to check any files before opening them. If a friend is sending a file, talk to them first to make sure it’s really them sending it.

4: Read more safety and security tips on our website: www.camfrog.com/help-security.phtml

If you come across an abusive user, you can find out more information on how to report that at our Abuse and Safety Center Page

Phishing Site Warning!

December 23rd, 2012

Please be aware, there are several phishing/scam websites out there right now offering free gifts, or free coins for Christmas. These websites look like Camfrog.com website, and ask you to enter your username and password to claim your free Camfrog Coins, or Christmas Virtual Gift. These websites then steal your account, and use it to spam other Camfrog users.

These sites are fake. There are no free Camfrog Coins or free Christmas gifts promotions at this time. We are working to get these fake phishing sites taken down as soon as possible.

Remember, NEVER enter your Camfrog username/password anywhere that is not camfrog.com

If you are not sure about the validity of a website, please contact our support team to confirm.

Have a hoppy, hoppy Christmas and New Years!

Camfrog Coins! What Are They? How Do They Work?

November 27th, 2012

Camfrog CoinsSome of you have already noticed something new on our website. Today, we launched a new, easier way to purchase virtual gifts: Camfrog Coins

Camfrog Coins are a virtual currency, that you can use to instantly send a vgift to a friend, a stranger, or your favorite room. When you purchase Camfrog Coins pack, your profile is updated automatically to show your current coins at the top of the page:

How many Coins do you have?When you send a gift using Camfrog Coins, your available coins balance is automatically updated, when the gift is instantly delivered. No more waiting on payment or processing delays. Send multiple gifts quickly and easily!

Speaking of gifts. You may have also noticed, that we have changed the gift achievement levels as well!

What are the new points tiers? We have updated our Gifts Catalog, and adjusted how many gift points each gift is worth, as well as updated the achievement tiers, adding two new crown levels!

Also added to your profile homepage, is a new gift status center, which shows you your current achievement level, how many coins you have, and how many points to unlock the next achievement level, as well as some other cool information

My Gifts and Points InformationWe’re pretty excited about this new gifting system, and as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas to make it even better!

Keep hopping Froggers!

Update: A lot of people have been asking about the new points tiers, or saying gifts do not appear in the Camfrog Software. Please be sure to check out our About Gifts page to see the full updated tiers. Yellow star is now 1000 points, instead of 10 – So to have the yellow star appear inside the software, you need at least 1000 points.
