How can I recover my account if it has been hacked or I lost my password?
PLEASE NOTE: If you need to recover your account for AdventureQuest Worlds, please visit the AQWorlds Recovery Page.

Players do this because the 'friend' has promised them in-game items or gold or Z-Tokens. We have no control over what information you give to another player, but you do.
