    Can any harm be done if someone has your pin?

    Advertisement



    I was just curious, can anyone hack into or give you some kind of malicious virus if they have your pin number. Or even just from using the bb messenger? Has anyone heard of such a thing? I was just curious about any and all possibilitites.

    Hmm the only thing I can think of is that he could pinbomb you...

    That's when a person repeatedly pins you with some useless message like "can you hear me now?"

    I have never had a problem whatsoever with giving out my pin and I have been a BB user for years. I'm pretty sure your safe.

    NO harm, the only harm is that they can message you.

    Re: Can any harm be done if someone has your pin?

    And for my last silly question of the day. If I give someone my pin, mind you i hardly use the bb messenger, and tell them to add me. I would simply instruct them to:

    1. Go to bb messenger
    2. hit Menu
    3. Add a contact
    4. Highlight (Use Once)
    5. hit Menu
    6. Request by PIN
    7. Enter my pin number
    8. hit Menu then continue.
    9. Ok the 'Add' message

    yup that's exactly what they would do. Then you should get a request on your BBM. If it doesnt work the first time just have them try again, BBM is a little picky sometimes.

    I think people get confused/worried with that term because it also refers to an ATM code. Understandable though.

    Not a bad point. "Giving out your PIN" does sound kind of ominous.

    Or constantly msg you at 3am with:

    "Sup Ma?"

    I don't get it. I'm new to the BB so I don't know what the PIN is even for. Feel free to clue me in.
    It is whatever I say it is...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the only problem I have had using BBM is this one chick kept asking me to send her a pic of my dong, seriously! She kept PIN'n me asking me to show her my dong, I finally told her off after being nice to her and never heard from her again
