This is not my preferred type of account lock (see Trion's Rift), however, its good to see Cryptic is trying. I still have my doubts about how Cryptic have addressed their security failings, considering their less than motivated approach to tackling other systemic failures in the company.

Will this feature be added to the main website because I see a few flaws on protecting accounts because they can also be accessed from the website to avoid this new Account Guard? I hope you add it to the website login to help better protect.

Indeed. Closing 1 door of 2 means hackers go for the one that's wide open and not booby-trapped. This, while easy to use, does not actually solve any fundamental account security problems at all. At best, it is poorly conceived. At worst, it is a red herring. It's like adding a lock to the glove box in your car to ensure your car isn't broken into.

It is just in testing now and Thanks for pointing this out to me the other day people do need to know about the threat is still there untill that 2nd door is shut.

please see the red shirt boards and this very thread for why this software isn't ready for release yet.




Cheers.

Or.... you could get a mobile app like TOR for security keys.

this just seems like if your account gets comprimised its going to hinder you more than help you.

first saw this when trying to log in on tribble last night...had me confused at first because it said that someone was trying to access my account from a different location (I was just on an hour earlier) but I think that, all in all, it's a good thing to have.
