# Tips for the future
Now it is time to give you some helpful advice. First, be sure to send a secret code from your account. To do this, submit an application on the website. The password itself is written somewhere, it is not necessary to store all the data on one computer. It is a technique that can be disrupted at the most inappropriate time.
Also, try to create complex passwords at once. It can also be written on paper. Try not to use birthdays/weddings/anniversaries, etc. It is better to operate a special password generator, which will give you a set of characters.
Be patient. Be prepared for the fact that if you lose data, you will have to wait a long time to get an answer. Usually, this is 2-3 weeks. Of course, if you haven’t already purchased games (only free games are downloaded) then it makes sense to create a new account. Otherwise, be patient.
