OP  10/10/12 9:16:28 PM#1

ArenaNet has announced that, effective immediately, Guild Wars 2 players can take part in the new beta of a two-factor authentication system. Players can download and install an authenticator program for a desktop PC or Mac and/or Android and iPhone mobile platforms. The new authentication system is designed to protect player accounts from hackers.

Mobile two-factor authentication is an alternative means of securing your Guild Wars 2account, and like e-mail authentication, is optional but strongly encouraged. Rather than sending you an e-mail when unauthorized login attempts occur, the game (or any of our online web sites) will prompt you for a six-digit number any time you log in to a Mobile Authenticator-protected account. Using a freely available app on three major smartphone platforms – iOS, Android, and Windows Phone – you can obtain the correct six-digit number unique to your account. These numbers change every 30 seconds and can only be used once; this ensures that without your mobile device, an attacker would not be able to compromise your Guild Wars 2 account.

Read more on the Guild Wars 2 site.

8 digits would be better but I'll settle for 6.

^ I agree, On the plus side, ANET would make more money if the botters re-buy the game lol. Or ina  worst case scenario more accounts will be hacked......

Bots run on hacked accounts, you HAVE to realize this?

So they're a directly related problem. It means they ARE dealing with bots.

This is why I love ArenaNet.  They still give a damn about their customers.  It's not a perfect solution.  But it's a step in the right direction.  Kudos to ArenaNet for this approach.  I just installed it and used it on my accounts.  Just so awesome.

Good, 11,000+ accounts hacked not long after GW2 was launched and still counting TODAY. Stuff like this should become a standard in MMO games now.


I bet you the amount of bots would be drastically cut down as well, since many of the bots are run on stolen accounts.

I'll wait until it isn't a beta...

Beta and security are not words that should be put together.

Google Authenticator for iPhones and Android.

 

I got it installed on my android phone and it's working great.

What if you don't have a smartphone?
 
It would be better to use the same method which google uses for gmail and google+.  You give them your mobile number and if you, or someone else, logs into your account from a different IP, they will send a code to your phone to verify it's you and not a hacker.  They also send one periodically even if you're logging in from the same IP add.  No need for an app, no need for a smartphone.  
 
People shouldn't make assumptions about what technology someone owns, especially if it's a company trying to improve security.
