account guard is almost as annoying as having to log completely out to change characters, but hey its not like cryptic actual listens to the players when it comes to stupid ideas.

From the FAQ linked in the news article, I think a lot of you might want to pay attention to this part.

Q: Can I opt out of Account Guard?

A: Yes. When you're logged into the Billing Portal, click "Main Menu" to navigate to the main menu, then click "Manage Account Guard". From there you can Disable or Re-Enable account guard, or delete individual Saved Clients and Saved Browsers so they won't be remembered.

I don't mind the Account Guard feature (seems to function like Steam). What I do mind, is having to relog everytime I want to switch character, and the fact that it doesn't have my Perfect World login credentials (keeps resetting to Cryptic).

It logs up to 10 different computers at a time (not IP addresses). Shouldn't be an issue.

So it's just a browser cookie then? How can we identify them so we can see what they're doing? Will they have a name or just a string of characters?
