Some ptc site such as thinkbux ask you to enter a new pin for safety reasons and it also requires to enter you password.. what do you think friends.. I am hesitant to use the feature because it appears on the first page. I am afraid this might be a way to hack you password..

Don't set that pin same as your bank account password or some other pin. Select a unique one. You may set it 1234 or 1111 not to forget it.

I think that's more secure !! Cause normally most bux site didn't encrypt your password. eg. if you have password abc, if hacker can access bux site, they can know your password immediately. But Pin system they told that they encrypted. So if hacker got your password they can't do much thing. They much know your pin too !! So, I love this system. Don't worry about enter password when input PIN. Cause it's change your profile, that's normally for secure only owner can use PIN. And admin always know your password without re-ask with this method. (So that suggestion for differenct password for every sites) Now I already apply PIN for Crewbux. Then just know Thinkbux have that function, so I will apply soon ;)
