    Yes, this is important. Recently, there have been links leading to an 'Optifine Website' that is apparently a giveaway for its 3rd Anniversary. Mind that this is fake! It is completely fake and do not enter your E-Mails and Password into it.

    To give you a brief look at the fake, here it is:
    http://optifine.support/CapeGiveaway/

    As you can see, this is the real website:
    http://optifine.net/home.php

    Here are a couple of questions you should ask yourselves before doing anything:
    1. Why are the 2 links different? 1 has optifine.support but the other has optifine.net.
    2. How come the end isn't this: http://optifine.net/capegiveaway
    3. Why isn't this announced across the Twitter, etc?

    Now let's spot a difference:
    1. The fake giveaway background is plain white while the real Optifine website has a snow white background.

    The thing is, you can type ANYTHING in those 2 slots and still be able to get in. The part after says that if you share it with 3 friends, you get an Optifine Cape. It's trying to get more accounts hacked. This is a simple warning for those who do not know yet.

    If you have completed this properly, change your password immediately.

    Wrong section, should go in Minecraft since optifine is a minecraft mod and it's a minecraft scam.
    But yeah, people can get desperate for this kinda stuff...it's pretty sad.

    Not sure if jokimg or serious... I literally spammed asdf!jnsnfm!fkajdmdff and it worked.

    Also, you don't need your password for an optifine cape I believe.
