  1. 1. Should they add Two-Step Auth?

So in my paranoia I had a thought. What if LO decided to add Two-Step Authentication to accounts? I mean with how much money people spend to only have their account compromised or lost you'd think they would implement some sort of extra security measure as a last resort kinda thing. I just can't see a downside to it. Even if it's an email two-step authorizing first time sign ins for the forums or even the game itself it'd make me feel a lot more safe. Just my two cents on it.

 

Thoughts? Opinions?

Lock your account to your country (no more people logging into your account from Hungary)

Cool stuff, never even knew that was a thing.

Is it widely used? I can't think of any games that have that. I know google blocks suspicious sign ins with their accounts when it comes from places you've never been to.

I would love to see (optional) 2 factor authentication. They could even add some little bonus like some games do to encourage using it.

You can already apply two-factor authentication to your forum account.

I believe the same is coming (eventually) for your GamersFirst account. 🙂

i know that was a joke. But what if the only way to login was a Physical key. Literally unhackable.

I read somewhere that added security to accounts is part of the plan for LO. Meaning adding 2-step authentication to them.

They should add two step auth for sure.

 

This would stop people hacking into my account so they can cheat on it.

As long as it's optional, cus I cbf to go find my phone every time I wanna login to the fkn game. My acct is already connected through steam, which I *do* have 2factor Auth on (or steam guard or w/e that dumb shit is called), that should be enough.

How about setting up a password that isn't 12345?

 

Or stop cheating?

 

One or the other....
