Purerave - for ravers and partiers

We hear about lost passwords and hijacked accounts all the time. Here are some tips to keep your account secure:

Site Security

  1. Type in the URL to Purerave: To safely and securely access the site, open a new web browser and type in the full URL to http://www.purerave.com.


  2. Use a browser other than MS Internet Explorer. FireFox is an excellent alternative for both Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X operating systems. Ensure that the browser is up to date with the latest security patches.


  3. Familarize yourself with the login process: Purerave will never create any kind of pop-up requesting your login information.

  4. Don't follow links to Purerave from untrusted sites.

  5. Don't use untrusted computers or untrusted networks. If you don't trust the Internet connection you are using then don't login using it.

  6. Don't surf untrusted sites and Purerave at the same time.

  7. Keep your security software current. Update your firewall and security patches frequently.

  8. Monitor your account and your profile's Last Login page. Check your account periodically to see if there is any suspicious activity.

  9. Try to memorize your member ID (it's 0). It can come in handy if your account becomes hijacked.

  10. Don't forget to Log-Out if you're using a shared computer.

  11. Don't use the Auto-Login feature on computers you don't trust.

  12. Use a JavaScript enabled browser to login.

Password Security

  1. Never share your password.

  2. Create a secure password using a combination of letters, numbers and characters.

  3. Keep your password unique: Don't use the same password for Purerave and other services. Using the same password for multiple services increases the likelyhood that someone could learn your password.

  4. Change your password often.

Email Security

  1. Don't send your password via email or instant message. We'll never, ever, ask you for your password. Ever!

  2. Don't share your account: It's tempting, but try not to share your account. It's also against the User Agreement.

  3. Keep your email address up to date and confirmed. Please use your primary email address for Purerave. We've never, and will never, send out spam!

  4. Purerave and their staff will never send you attachments.

  5. Keep your account's email address hidden by editing your Profile and checking the Keep email hidden box.

Privacy Issues

There are some very important things to keep in mind when interacting online.

  1. Be careful sharing your personal information such as your real name, address, or phone number with members you do not trust. Never post such information publicly!

  2. Never meet anyone in real life without telling others or accompanied by a friend.

  3. People online aren't always who they claim to be.

  4. Marking your event attendance will expose to others that you'll be attending that event.

  5. Use the location hiding option in your profile.

  6. Being someone else's +Buddy will expose when you last logged in.
