If you play Clash of Clans, you more probably know how tiring it is waiting for your gold. If you want cheat the system, there are a couple ways to do so.
There are two types of ways to hack Clash of Clans. Modders can mod the actual Clash of Clans app downloaded from Supercell or install a pre-altered Clash of Clans app that will use a private server rather than Supercell’s servers.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to hack the Clash of Clans app and still be able to play on Supercell’s servers: If a modder chooses the former route, the extra gold and gems will reset themselves every round and if the modder does the latter, they’re going to be playing on a rigged server where everybody cheats and Clash of Clans has no particular challenge.
If a modder is set on hacking or modding the Clash of Clans app to cheat, they need to be aware that cheating on Clash of Clans involves installing some very sketchy files from what is effectively the Craigslist of online cloud space. This means that anybody could have uploaded that hacked copy of Clash of Clans and there’s no way to know that a modded version of Clash of Clans doesn’t have any malicious malware or key loggers bundled inside of it.
Both methods involved rooting an Android device or jail breaking an iOS device. This means breaking down the permissions sandbox that Google and Apple has installed on Android and iOS and allowing third-party apps and programs to have superuser status.
Unless someone knows what they are doing, rooting on Android or jail breaking on iOS is a good way to contract a virus or piece of malware on a device that houses almost all personal information, including bank apps and passwords for email addresses.
Bluestacks is an Android emulator for your computer. When you use it, a window containing an instance of the Android operating system will pop up and you can use that instance of Android to do anything you would be able to do on a regular Android device, except make phone calls or text. Programs like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger should work on Bluestacks.
If Bluestacks is used, it means that any malware contained inside a modded or hacked version of Clash of Clans, or any viruses inside programs that are needed to mod a regular Clash of Clans app, will have a limited effect, since no personal information is located on the Bluestacks’ instance of Android in the same way as it is on a real Android device.
However, when installing files downloaded from sketchy places to mod Clash of Clanson Bluestacks, such as MediaFire or any anonymous online storage space, make sure not to fall for the trap of launching an .exe file or app on Windows or OS X.
All modded or hacked versions of Clash of Clans should be files that will open up within Bluestacks and not on your computer at a system level. If you launch an .exe file or app that has been downloaded from an unscrupulous source, and they get access to an administrator password, you have now installed a piece of malware on your computer that is already recording all your activity and passwords.
