Using gms_self_set to save player email is safe? (nothing weird here lol)

Posted by DinoWattz
Hi size!
so.. I found this extension here:
It gets gravatar profile photos, but the problem is that it needs to use a email to do that. I'll let the player input the email, but I need to send the email string to the other players to load the avatar, I will gms_self_set to do that

Is there something I need to worry about, or is it alright?

This is not a good idea. You should not share the email address of someone with all other players.

It's because someone can hack and see the email, right? I'll try sending the image/sprite instead.
Thanks Size!
