Choosing Your New Password

Your new password should be unique and strong. It must have at least eight but not more than 20 characters including at least one letter and one number. Your password cannot have sequential characters such as 0123 or ABCD. Having a strong password ensures that no one else can access your account.

If Your Account Was Hacked

If you suspect that your account may have been hacked, you may need to contact the support team. Your account may be hacked if; your account stats are inaccurate, your classes are changed, or someone had access to your password.

Change your password and use one that is strong and unique. Contact the support team and express your concerns. They will give you tips to keep your account safe and deal with the existing issues.

Activision tries to protect your account as much as possible. Your personal information remains safe. Members of the public cannot access it unless it is non-confidential in nature. Information that may be accessible to the public includes; leaderboard rankings and scores.

Activision customers are assured that their personal information may not be misused or altered. If you contact the support team, the representatives may give you the tips you need to use your account safely.

Even though Activision protects your account, it is impossible for them to guarantee 100% security for their customers. Fortunately, it is possible to recover your account after its security has been compromised.

The best way to contact Activision with your problems is on the phone. You will be connected with a customer care agent in a few minutes. The support agents are polite and respectful. They will help you get help with any of your problems. Some customers have to call Activision a few times before getting the help they need

Another option to seek help from Activision is on their help desk. It has a wide variety of targeted tips and suggestions that may address your questions. The Activision help desk gives you an opportunity to learn from the experiences of other users. When speaking with a customer care agent on the help desk, they may request that you continue the communication on email. This means that it may take you a longer time to get support. They do not give support on their Twitter and Facebook.
