Sony Online Entertainment has launched a new authenticator to help secure your online games with an additional layer of security.
Online gaming can be risky and there are a lot of people that would like to get their hands on your account for a number of nefarious reasons. Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is no stranger to the dangers of compromised security following the cyber attack they suffered in April that compromised more than 100 million accounts across the Playstation Network and SOE services.
SOE recently added an additional security option for players with the new SOE Authenticator. Priced at $9.99, the SOE Authenticator will add a random password six digit pin code that will also be added with your SOE password when logging into a game. SOE has also announced that a mobile authenticator will be available at a later date for iOS and Android devices. Currently the authenticator only works for PC accounts and not for the Playstation 3.
