Safety

To help keep your computer and gaming accounts safe there are a few things when downloading the Curse application that you should be aware of.

Most important is that when downloading anything for Curse (application, addons, mods, etc.) to always make sure you are downloading from CURSE.COM.  This will include any sites that has the TLD as curse.com (example: http://mods.curse.com/).  We do not host anything on 3rd party sites.  

Note: the only exception to this is that if you are receiving support from Curse you may be given an alternative download link when troubleshooting.

Do not use Google search for "Curse" as this can lead to fake Curse sites with compromised Curse apps.

Make sure you scan all downloaded applications before installing them.


Curse, nor any Curse employee will ask you for your game accounts login information.  Do not give out this information in any Curse chats.  

Please make sure that your Curse account password does not match that of any of your gaming accounts.
