The Denial of Service attack against our servers has been mitigated. All services are operating as normal. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

We are aware of a Denial of Service attack against our servers.

At this time, we believe that this is in-fact a targeted attack against our services. Please be aware: a Denial of Service attack involves overburdening a service so that it cannot take requests – it does not result in data loss or breaches of privacy.

At the time of writing, service is currently available, but it will likely be in and out while we ride out and attempt to mitigate this attack. Thank you for understanding,

9. Report any accounts which violate our terms of use. We have the report tool for a reason. Someone on Wolf Howl posting spam may actually be a bot that has compromised a legitimate user account. Our staff team can help with such matters.

10. Follow the direction of our staff team. Wolf Howl staff are here to keep the server safe. They will not steer you wrong when it comes to account safety and security.

Thank you for listening! Keep on howling!

5. Routinely change your password. Every three months, you should probably pick a brand new password. This reduces the amount of time a data breach can be utilized against you.

Then, Go to your Wolf Howl profile and under profile metadata, enter "Kinmunity" as the title and a link to your Kinmunity proflile as the value. (

Congrats! You're linked!

Click the button labeled "Add more identities" and then search for; select it and then follow the instructions. A linked Keybase account makes it easier for staff to recover your Wolf Howl account if it is ever compromised.

1. Use a secure password. This is a password that is eight characters or more, difficult to guess, and uses a combination of: letters, numbers, and symbols.

2. Enable two-factor authentication. Got a phone? You can use it to make sure that nobody gets into your precious Wolf Howl account! Visit to set it up!

Security is something that all of us should be concerned about, but very few of us care about until it's too late. The truth is, it's actually quite easy to keep your Wolf Howl account secure. We've compiled a few quick tips in this thread to help you!

We are aware that some older accounts within the fediverse have been recently compromised by spam bots randomly attempting to use credentials obtained in various high profile data breaches. While Wolf Howl itself is not a target of the breach, it may result in our users seeing more spam awoos than normal.

If you encounter spam awoos while using Wolf Howl, please report them. Compromised accounts will be silenced by our staff until they are recovered by the rightful account holder.

Stay safe!
