Moving your Users Directory

2022 Jul 21 NEOPETS PASSWORDS: This is a reminder that you should be using UNIQUE passwords for all of your accounts (including NeoMallers) - especially the important ones. Many browsers have built-in password managers to help you generate complex passwords and keep track of these. For more information, please visit JellyNeo's post.

The NeoMallers Portal, as of version 5.3.1 is now set to run from your C:\Program Files\NeoMallers Portal folder. In the past, the portal used to run from C:\NeoMallers
We recommend that you MOVE your existing version of the portal to this folder to avoid confusions in the future.
