Oz Linden has announced on the Second Life official blog that the third-party Android viewer “IM to Secondlife” has been blocked from accessing Second Life. Apparently the block was due to serious violations of the policy on the Third Party viewers page.
The third-party Android viewer “IM to Secondlife” was released back in September 2015 and since then has been downloaded more than 10, 000 times on the Google Play Store. The reviews have been mostly mixed and negative recently. It’s rated 3 and half stars out of 5 stars.
Here is the full blog post by Oz Linden…
Linden Lab has blocked the third party Android client “IM to Secondlife”; it may no longer be used to access Second Life. We did so due to serious violations of the Policy on Third Party Viewersrelating to user account security and user privacy.
If you have ever used that viewer, Linden Lab strongly suggests that you secure your Second Life account, beginning with updating your password on the Second Life account page:
We may need to temporarily hold some accounts in connection with this incident. Please ensure that your contact information is up to date and verify your email address:https://accounts.secondlife.com/change_email/
It’s good to see Linden Lab taking some serious action to protect the security of the Second Life community.
