Just a clarification please. From all of the docs I;ve seen, this is computer based. In the comments, it;s mentioned that it's IP based. Can we clarify which it is please? I use a wide range of addresses so if it is IP based, I;m going to have to opt out right away.

It is my understanding that if you log in on your home computer you can save it to Account Guard and it will remember that location. Now if you log in from a laptop, you will be asked again and you can add the laptop and it will remember. Now if you are at a friends computer, then you will be asked and decline adding it. Now if you do that, you would not be able to login from your friends computer.

Hey there Bran... :cool:

I've got two questions for you. Is this something Cryptic has developed internally? If not, can you direct us to the website of the software company who produces the technology so we may learn more about it?

I've used this feature, and I hate it. Anything that requires me to alt + tab alt to type in a code is terrible. Either put it on the launcher, or get rid of it please... This game doesn't need this level of security...
