Two-Factor Authentication Beta Begins for Guild Wars 2

Posted Wed, Oct 10, 2012 by Martuk

ArenaNet is increasing its security protection for Guild Wars 2 with a new two-factor mobile authentication system. Security Coordinator Mike Lewis today announced on the Guild Wars 2 forums that beta testing for the new system is now underway. The free app for the new authentication is available for free on iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.

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.

Even if it is late it's nice to see that leading companies in their respective verticals are giving users the better balance between security and user experience by implementing 2FA which allows us to telesign into our accounts. I know some will claim this make things more complicated, but the slight inconvenience each time you log in is worth the confidence of knowing your info is secure. I'm hoping that more companies start to offer this awesome functionality. This should be a prerequisite to any system that wants to promote itself as being secure.
