  • WHICH GAMES ON STEAM™ CAN BE HOURBOOSTED

  • WHAT SECURITY MEASURES DO YOU HAVE IN PLACE?
    Although we don’t want to disclose too many of our methods, we think making our customers feel safe is very important.
    We never store passwords or critical data in plaintext, and only certain trusted people, have access to the servers.
    We strictly use HTTPS connections on our website and strong encrypted connections between servers.
    We have multiple form of security measures in place, which makes it extremely difficult, for anyone from the outside to connect to our servers or even locate them. An example of this could be a firewall, which only allows a few trusted IP’s to connect to our servers.
    We use CloudFlare, which both hides our backend IP, helps us block bad traffic, reinforces us with a WAF (Web Application Firewall) and a lot more.
