"PIC" is the abbreviation for "Personal Identification Code," an extra layer of account security that helps reduce the risk of your MapleStory account becoming the victim of account theft. Be safe! Protect your account information, including your account ID, password and PIC. Never share your account with others and update your password frequently.
You will be asked to create a PIC the first time you log into MapleStory using your account ID and password.
Follow these simple steps to create your PIC
Remember, you will need to re-enter your PIC every time you log in to play MapleStory. Keep your information safe and never share your PIC with anyone.
For security reasons you will be unable to retrieve a lot or forgotten PIC. You can, however, reset your PIC by requesting a PIC reset. To do so, please press the "Reset My PIC" button above.
On February 10, 2010, MapleStory moved from a "PIN" (Personal Identification Number) system to the
current PIC system. If your account was created prior to February 10, 2010, you'll be prompted to log in
with your account ID, password, and old PIN number the first time you try to log in.
Once you do this and reach the character select screen, you will be prompted to create a PIC. Follow the steps above to create your PIC. After you have created your PIC, you will no longer need to enter your PIN at login.
