GW2: Two-Factor Authentication Beta Begins Now
ByDate: 10-10-2012 Views:
Security has kind of been a hot topic in Guild Wars 2. ArenaNet is increasing its security protection for Guild Wars 2 with a new two-factor mobile authentication system. A new post on the official forums introduces players to mobile two-factor security. The free app for the new authentication is available for free on iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
The team is advising people that this is currently a beta feature, and already has two changes planned for the near future. Soon, unlinking the mobile authentication system will require additional codes, and users will have an option to remember current networks rather than having to authenticate every login.
You can learn more about the authentication app and how to obtain it in Lewis’ full post. Be advised that this new feature is still in beta, so there could be a few hiccups along the way.
