To further its mission of creating a space for accelerating creativity, pixiv continues to carry out various projects. Depending on the type of project, complex functions may be developed specifically for the special page, making maintenance difficult after the project period ends. Keeping the page up for a long time has caused some malfunctions, making the whole page unusable, and causing inconvenience to everyone. In light of this situation, we will be gradually taking down the above-mentioned pages so that you can continue using pixiv in a safe and secure manner. We appreciate your understanding. Our entire development and management team would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for using the various projects we have released so far. <h2>About Circle Space Maker</h2> After June 20th, all information registered with Circle Space Maker will be deleted and you will no longer be able to view the spaces you have set up in the past.

Real-world events are being held more frequently these days. Therefore, taking into consideration the current traffic on this page, and the maintenance required to keep up this space, we have decided to discontinue this service.

Passwords for some pixiv accounts have been reset to prevent unauthorized login pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=10904 2024-05-07T15:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. Thank you for using our service. In order to strengthen security, pixiv has implemented a reward program for discovering vulnerabilities, information leaks, and the risks associated with them. Through this reward program, we got to know that there’s a list with login information that is being illegally passed around, and some pixiv accounts are also present on this list. However, we did not find any vulnerabilities in our system that could lead to password leaks. This is not a direct leak from pixiv. Although the exact cause is unknown, the following may be possible. ・Logging in using a browser with an unsafe extension installed ・Logging into a fake or proxy site pretending to be an official service ・Reusing a password that might have been leaked from the other sites After checking the validity of the login information that has been circulating, pixiv has reset the password for accounts that have valid passwords listed on the circulating document. Please rest assured that unauthorized login to pixiv accounts using the information that was circulating will no longer be possible. <b>■ An e-mail has been sent to all those whose password has been reset</b> Said users will receive an e-mail in May 2024 with the subject "Passwords reset" If you receive this e-mail, you will not be able to log in using your old password, so please reset your password. If you do not receive this e-mail, you have not been affected by this issue, but please read the following information to prevent any future unauthorized login. We will continue to conduct surveys to strengthen our security. Please note that if we discover a similar list of login information with pixiv account details mentioned, we will reset the password for all the listed accounts. <h2>FAQ on this matter</h2> <b>■ How did the login information for pixiv accounts get leaked and circulated on a list?</b> Although the exact cause is unknown, the following may be possible. ・Logging in using a browser with an unsafe extension installed ・Logging into a fake or proxy site pretending to be an official service ・Reusing a password that might have been leaked from the other sites <b>■ Login information of how many pixiv accounts was being circulated?</b> ・57205 pixiv accounts were found on the list ・Out of those, passwords for 41722 accounts have been reset because the login information on the list was still valid pixiv has checked the validity of the login information that has been circulating. We have not reset passwords for accounts with invalid login information, as it is not possible to illegally log in using that information. <b>■ How did you find out there is a list with login information that is being circulated?</b> In order to strengthen security, pixiv has implemented a reward program for discovering vulnerabilities, information leaks, and the risks associated with them. Through this reward program, we got to know that there’s a list with login information that is being illegally passed around, and some pixiv accounts are also present on this list. <b>■ How did you find out that the login information was actually being used?</b> pixiv used the passwords on the list to check the validity of the login information that has been circulating. <b>■ Is pixiv security secure? (I would like to know the technical background)</b> At pixiv, we use salted-hashed passwords to prevent the reversal of encryption. Therefore, it is not possible to know the actual password based on the password hash stored in the database. Since the leaked list contains actual passwords, it is safe to assume that this is not a direct leak from pixiv's database, but rather an information leak from other sites as explained above. No vulnerabilities that could lead to password leaks have been found in pixiv's system, and no passwords or any other login information has been leaked from pixiv. <h2>Preventing unauthorized logins</h2> <b>■ How can I check if anyone has logged into my account?</b> You can check the latest login date and time or IP address from your login history. <a href="https://accounts.pixiv.net/security-history">https://accounts.pixiv.net/security-history</a> Please check if there is login history that you do not recognize. <b>■ What should I do to avoid falling victim to unauthorized login?</b> When using pixiv or other services, please be sure to take the following basic measures. ・Don't reuse passwords for multiple services ・Avoid installing suspicious browser extensions ・Use the official website or app ・Enable two-factor authentication For information on how to enable two-factor authentication on pixiv, please check this help section. <a href="https://www.pixiv.help/hc/en-us/articles/20876082054553">https://www.pixiv.help/hc/en-us/articles/20876082054553</a> If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact us using the contact form below.

Reason for the revision of the pixiv Guidelines on real-life photographs or photo-realistic images pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=10839 2024-04-15T12:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. In response to the confusion surrounding the revision of the guidelines published on April 10th, 2024, we would like to provide a detailed explanation. <h2>■Revision Details</h2> Guidelines on prohibited post content for Illustrations, Manga, Ugoira, and Other Images have been changed as follows. <b>[Before Revision] </b> ・Real-life photographs or photo-realistic images that can be interpreted as sexual content. <b>[After Revision on April 10th, 2024] </b> ・Real-life photographs or photo-realistic images. <h2>■Reasons for this revision</h2> The latter half of the sentence, “that can be interpreted as sexual content”, was deleted from the original guidelines to prohibit users from posting the following content: 1. Photo-realistic images that can be interpreted as sexual or cruel content based on context, even though at first they might not seem that way, regardless of how they are created. ・E.g.: Depictions of minors so photo-realistic that they could be mistaken for real persons, depictions of minors in swimsuits, diapers, etc. 2. Photo-realistic depictions intended to violate human rights, manipulate information, or cause chaos in society. ・E.g.: Images depicting actually-existing minors drinking, real politicians/celebrities being arrested, scenes of non-existent battlefields and disasters, solicitation of investment scams, etc. pixiv has always considered these posts undesirable and dealt with them appropriately (e.g. deleting them) as soon as discovered. However, before the guidelines were revised, we did not have sufficient basis to justify our actions. We have revised the guidelines to address a broader category, consistent with the action taken, and to prevent any new posts of this kind. To keep things wholesome, we had no choice but to revise the guidelines to “Real-life photographs or photo-realistic images” to target a broader category. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We have seen comments from our community questioning whether posts using art styles and techniques such as hyperrealism will also be prohibited. We decided to address this issue with this announcement to clear any possible doubts. pixiv does not prohibit posts based on art styles and techniques such as hyperrealism, and as stated in our previous announcement, no changes have been made to how the prohibited posts are handled. In order to prevent malicious acts testing the boundaries of the guidelines, we can’t disclose the specific criteria for determining whether or not a post violates the guidelines. However, we will continue to set standards to create a wholesome environment for everyone to enjoy. We will continue scrutinizing the guidelines. If you have any comments, please send them to us using this form. <a href="https://pixiv.net/#feedback">https://pixiv.net/#feedback</a> Thank you for your continued patronage with pixiv. You can now set up two-factor authentication on the pixiv app pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=10789 2024-04-12T19:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. Starting April 8th, 2024, you can set up two-factor authentication on the pixiv app. Two-factor authentication increases the security of your account by requiring you to confirm your login information via two separate methods, protecting your account from unauthorized access by third parties. This update is scheduled for gradual rollout, so it may take some time before the update is accessible to everyone. Thank you for your patience. - The announcement dated August 21st, 2023 stated that two-factor authentication could only be set up from the desktop and mobile versions of pixiv. However, with this update, you can set up two-factor authentication from the pixiv app as well. ■ How to set up two-factor authentication ① To set up two-factor authentication, you will need to install an authentication app like Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator on your device. Google Authenticator Download iOS version <a href="https://apps.apple.com/jp/app/google-authenticator/id388497605">here</a> Download Android version <a href="https://apps.apple.com/jp/app/google-authenticator/id388497605">here</a> Microsoft Authenticator Download iOS version <a href="https://apps.apple.com/jp/app/microsoft-authenticator/id983156458">here</a> Download Android version <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.azure.authenticator&hl=ja">here</a> ② Open the pixiv app, and go to Settings > Account Settings > Two-Factor Authentication. - If you haven't set an e-mail address yet, the "Two-Factor Authentication" option will not be displayed. Please set an e-mail address first. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your login method. ③ You will be asked to verify your pixiv account. After verification, the setup screen for two-factor authentication will appear. Tap "Enable" on this page. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20240412/546894924.png" width="50%"> ④ Tap "My 2D code won't scan". <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20240412/561069882.png" width="50%"> ⑤ Copy the "Account" and "Secret Key" and enter them into the authentication app. Once the authentication app displays a verification code, press the "Next" button on the setup screen on pixiv. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20240412/627549399.png" width="50%"> ⑥ Enter the 6-digit verification code displayed on the setup screen in the authentication app, then tap "Confirm". ⑦ Two-factor authentication is now enabled. A list of backup codes that can be used if your device is lost or broken will now be displayed. Please download or take a screenshot of these codes, and keep them somewhere safe. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20240412/592653281.png" width="50%"> From now on, you will need to enter a 6-digit verification code displayed by the authentication app every time you log in to pixiv. We will continue to improve our services so that our users can use pixiv in an even safer and more secure environment. Thank you for your continued patronage with pixiv.
