With millions of active users competing in the game daily, it becomes difficult to keep tabs on everyone manually. This is where Garena's anti-cheat system comes into play. The system detects any irregularities in every user's gameplay and hands permanent suspensions to players using unfair means.
Garena banned 1,388,145 Free Fire accounts for cheating in the last two weeks
Garena often publishes bi-weekly reports detailing the number of accounts that have been suspended in a certain period.
According to their latest report, 1,388,145 accounts have been banned in the last two weeks for using hacks and trying to gain an unfair advantage in Free Fire.
The report saw a six percent increase in banned accounts compared to the last report, in which they suspended 1,306,377 accounts.
58 percent of the 1,388,145 accounts, i.e., 805,124 accounts, were reported by legitimate players.
