Free Fire has a zero tolerance policy against cheating. we’ll permanently ban accounts used to cheat. Devices used to cheat will also be prohibited from playing Free Fire again using other accounts.
Q5: Since Free Fire bans hackers' accounts, why not also ban IP? How will Free Fire handle cheaters using guest accounts?
The IP ban is not an effective measure, as cheaters can use public Wi-Fi, in which case the IP ban will affect other innocent players.
We are aware of the exploitation of the guest account and are continuously working to combat this breach. We are currently banning accounts immediately after misconduct. This makes cheating using guest accounts relatively meaningless.

Banning is not all we do, we have a dedicated anti-hack technical team, focused on preventing hackers.
