Ask yourself this question:
Would you like to memorize yet another unique password?
Or perhaps you would prefer to supply us with the same (or a very similar) password to the one you use for your more important accounts like social media, online banking, PayPal, etc?
We didn't think so...
- Dropbox hacked leaking 68 million user passwords
- Equifax credit agency may have been hacked again leaking the personal data of 145 million
- OneLogin password manager hacked leaking passwords to users' other online accounts
- Blogger discovers a vulnerability in PayPal's 2 factor authentication while on holiday
PointsPrizes is a casual site, for casual users to earn free gift cards and other prizes. We prefer not to hold any more sensitive data about you than is absolutely necessary.
Therefore to protect your points we confirm every prize claim via an email confirmation link.
Ultimately your Gmail, or other email account, will have far better security.
