Regarding the recent API Update to Animal Jam Classic
Majority of you most likely are confused by the title of this thread, but I assure you this comes with good news.
For a while, AJC's API has been extremely vulnerable in terms of hacking. People have been using third party programs to exploit on the game as well as use password crackers to get into other players accounts, but after a recent API update, this has all changed.
Animal Jam HQ has recently updated the API nullifying the use of password crackers AND third party programs. They've essentially been patched from ever being used on the game for right now. I would like to say permanently, but there's always bypasses around these things - I'm just hoping it's unlikely a bypass is found.
I've uploaded a YouTube video over on my channel which can be found in the link attached to this post, I encourage to give it a watch if you had the time or want to hear a bit more information on this topic.
I figured I should post this over on here though because it seems like no one has already. https://youtu.be/YafG0iLrA4o

Why a data breach does not mean you will be hacked and why you should change your passwords anyways
My Animal Jam classic account was hacked on October 18, a week after the alleged data breach. This is because my password was simple enough to be decrypted and shared where any tech savvy person can access it if they wanted. It’s a good thing that Animal Jam is requiring us to change our passwords, but I had to change 22 passwords because all of them were released due to this single breach. You can see which of your passwords have been compromised through google chrome if you used chrome to save your passwords. If you do not have this option, change the password of any other account with which you have used the same password of your Animal Jam account, for safety reasons. I don’t care if someone gets into my Animal Jam account, but if someone used my information to log into a website which stores my billing information, then that’s where the real trouble starts. A data breach does not necessarily mean you will be hacked, though it is a possibility. Why exactly would someone breach WildWorks? It’s to gather information, and maybe sell it, not take your spikes. That’s millions of accounts that were hacked. Unless you’re in my situation and your password was also decrypted and given to a place where a weird Jammer would choose to get into your stuff. I’m actually really curious about that.
