Internet & Social Network Security

Stay safe while using your internet browser and on social media.

The internet is an educational and entertaining place. But it also has a dark side too. It is important to understand how to keep your crypto funds and NFTs safe in a rapidly changing virtual environment.

General Security Guidelines

Do Not Download Random Files

Files can contain malicious code, such as a script which executes a hyperlink to direct you to a scam site or a virus.

Image files, video files, email files, PDF files, EXE files, and BAT files are the most common formats used by scammers, but there may be others too. Treat all random offers to download something as extremely suspicious.

Beware Of Untrustworthy Websites

Avoid visiting websites offering illegal downloads or streams (ie, cracked software, movie piracy, etc), shady software, and so on. These websites often state that they are "free," but may be designed to take advantage of others.

Websites that offer shady software, for example, often bundle dangerous additions into the downloads, such as trackers, spyware, and crypto miners.

They may contain advertisements that link to a dangerous website, since law-abiding ad services such as Google Ads would normally refuse to operate on such websites.

Social Networks

Only click Official Links from The Sandbox when visiting linked websites and pages on social media or in emails.

The Sandbox will never send you a DM on social networks to ask for funds, offer you a prize, see if you want to download something, and so on.

The Sandbox does not have official "Support" pages on social networks. For your privacy and safety, we provide support via private tickets in our official Discord community and official website.

Be wary of people abusing social posts on The Sandbox's official social media accounts to post "shills" that are actually potentially dangerous links. Feel free to report such abuse to the social network in question.
