There have been many rumors about the Call of Duty: Warzone accounts being hacked. Although Activision addressed the issue, they deny the rumors. However, the publisher also advises the users to keep their accounts safe by changing the password.
The first reports about the system breach came out on September 21 and 22. However, according to Activision, the number is inflated. Reports showed a major breach of 500,000 Call of Duty hacked accounts. The news raised concerns among the CoD players. Since the whole ordeal, Activision suggests a couple of steps players should take just in case.

Better now than sorry. If you are concerned about your account, you can start by changing your password just a preventive measure. However, there are additional steps you can take to feel safer and ensuring the protection of your account.
Here is what you need to do:
- The first thing you can do is to unlink all account associated to your Activision account
- Don’t purchase, trade, or share your account
- Don’t sign in on a device that others have access to
- Don’t link your account to other websites
Call of Duty: Warzone is a very popular game hosting millions of players. However, this also means more data breaches. The game is associated with many other services, which gives hackers more possibilities to attack, such as Playstation, Battle.net, XBOX Live, Steam, Nintendo, Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch.
Although the number of breaches was inflated, it serves as a fire alert. Therefore, if you think one of your account passwords is weak, take action immediately in order to prevent hacking.
