Enabling account guard?
07-05-2012, 11:26 AM
I've noticed a few complaints and not a lot of actual threads about it I'm curious as to how one enables account guard? It sounds to me like it should be on by default, and for me browsing to the billing portal it is, the game lets me in with no contest though. I've tried turning account guard off and back on in the billing website and it didn't do anything to log into the game itself.
I'm just trying to get this rolling asap, because I know security features like this aren't the best type compared to say an authenticator dongle, but it means the potential account thief has to break through 2 passwords instead of one, and if you notice the email about the code come you can try to change your passwords fast if you're lucky.
This is just really concerning for me and I'd like to set it up since it's better than nothing because two days ago I got an email from Perfect World showing that someone tried to recover my game account name. I doubt they got it, my email and game passwords are different and not used anywhere else. This is concerning that I know someone is actively trying to get in though none the less and I'd like to get this setup ASAP, I've played Blacklight a little but my STO account is the one I'm really concerned about.
