Since its release in February 2018, PUBG Mobile has attracted a lot of male and female players, up to over 100 million monthly users. However, the problem of hackers always annoys genuine players and causes game publishers a headache. In the above article, Tencent said it has strengthened the fraud detection system and is 100% committed to creating the best experience for players

Some rumors are not true about in-game hacks

Rumor: Recharge hackers will not be locked out
Fact: The amount of money deposited in the game does not affect the penalty for cheating. If you cheat, there will be no tolerance even if you have loaded a lot of money into PUBG Mobile. In fact, we have locked some accounts with very large deposits. Everyone is treated equally.

Rumor: VIP hacking software will keep you undetected!

Fact: Anyone who cheats will get punished. No software can make it past our eyes. The creators of the software try to convince the buyer that they will not be detected, but that is not true.

Rumor: Players from XXXX countries are all cheating!

Fact: Every country has fraudulent players. But most, players in countries are "upright". *smile*

Rumor: Tencent benefits from fraud!

Fact: We absolutely hate hackers and we won't do anything for them. We take pride in the game the company grows every day, and cheating on our efforts. Tencent will do everything to eliminate negative behaviors in the game. There are more than hundreds of people working on this issue

Rumor: If Tencent were XXXX, then the number of hackers would have decreased
Fact: All the simplest solutions have been considered, but we need to develop a more effective method that doesn't affect the true players. Everything is there will be considered. Many people ask why we don't ban by IP address. The problem is, normal players can use IP addresses that cheaters once connected or hackers can use other people's IP addresses. The method is not really as effective as you think
Rumor: The review and banning take place by day / week / month

Fact: Fraudsters can be banned at any time, as soon as we find out. Can be in the middle of a match or when looking at the data and see anomalies after the game. We want to eliminate them immediately, waiting is not the right thing to do


How Tencent discovered fraud in PUBG Mobile

According to the company's announcement, Tencent has a game security team that monitors the in-game data continuously. To detect players who have cheated, the system will first scan and check for suspicious software used on PUBG Mobile and whether game data has been modified. Most hacking software is easy to spot thanks to the company's blacklist. This database is constantly updated by Tencent. This is a simple and quite effective line of defense.

However, fraud technology is growing and software writers are very good at bypassing the review system. Once a piece of software has worked in the game, it's time for Tencent's second line of defense to act. For security reasons, the in-depth working principle is kept confidential by the company. The company says one mechanism of action is to look for "ridiculous" events in the game. For example, you cannot dance in Pochinki and appear in the military zone 30 seconds later. If Tencent fails to correctly scan the software used, the in-game action will accuse hackers
In the event that "unreasonable" events do not occur and fraudulent acts at first glance seem like a good player is there, Tencent will rely on the reports and data and directly monitor that account. This is a fairly expensive but very effective way to thoroughly eliminate adept fraudsters

"Kill the grass" at the root of the software writers

Tencent is targeting "big fish" that are hackers who create software, promote and sell them. In the past few months, the company has taken down hundreds of websites, videos, server discords, and ads that sell PUBG Mobile fraud software. Player reporting actions and streamers help the company greatly in the process of working. These guys are always trying to convince the community that their software is undetectable, has a long life, and the only way to win is to cheat. Tencent reported on people who had stolen their credit information when making fraudulent purchases
PUBG Mobile is increasingly strengthened security network to create the best experience for players. One of Tencent's next steps is to communicate directly with the seller and create the software. In update version 0.15.0, the company will invest additional resources for this campaign. Besides, the server has also been upgraded to detect fraudsters hiding behind poor connection status
It seems that PUBG phones will become "cleaner", and the number of cheaters will decrease. Is this really necessary if PUBG Mobile doesn't want to follow the footsteps of PC brothers to become deadgames when the number of PUBG pc players decreases? What do you think of Tencent's "letter to players"? Feel free to leave your comments in the comment section below!
