2 step verification system (authenticator)

Hello.

I will forgo the prosaic introductions, as my intentions are simply this ; make the developers aware of our desire for the implementation of an (optional) 2 step verification system.

It is irrelevant whether or not this particular subject has been discussed or brought up in the forums before. As our accounts are still at risk, and i do not know how serious the developer's are in regards to our accounts security. Obviously, to some extent, they are, as we are, essentially the ones paying for their electricity. I'm not hating on the developer's, i'm just trying to help get this into motion as soon as possible. I am a backer of the highest tier and i continue to spend money in the pearl shop, so the notion of loosing my account because of hackers is simply unacceptable. I can do my best to change passwords often, make them virtually unbreakable and heed the imperative measures in order to keep my system from viral harm...

yes, i could do all these things, but my account may still be at risk. i am not saying that a 2 step process will make my account impervious to malicious intent, but it will make it much much safer then it is now, and for all i know, it very well MIGHT make it impervious. anyway. my point is, please make this happen.

The more of these threads there are, the better, until we have achieved it.

We just want the option to shelter and protect our accounts as forcefully as possible.

thank you very much :D

 

Here are some links to older threads (NOT authored by myself) that speak about this very subject.

Hi OP! :) I can forward this to my team to see if this is something we can implement eventually as Account Security is always important! However, there is no guarantee but I do thank you for taking the time to write this up.

2Step verification is never a bad thing.

Just add the pin KR has that you have to enter after pressing start on the main screen. The number pad is randomized each time. Better than nothing. :)

Or full blown 2FA i guess.

This is a great idea! If you can make it optional probably be the best as I can see some players not being to keen on the 2 step verification. :)

you may think about a second password for the forum aswell and or atleast force HTTPS since HTTP transfers your (Game) Login in plaintext over the Internet..

KR has a 6 digit pin when you log in, would help if we had it as well.
