The application is storing device information so it can where you are accessing the game. And I certainly hope they are not relying on client-side verification like a cookie to determine this information. That would make this incredibly unsecure.

I believe it is using cookies -- the launcher adds a cookie to IE....

Day two no access. Going a little crazy. House is clean, and since I had nothing better to do I waxed the floor too... It's all shiny now, but I'm not sure the carpet liked it too well...

Why is it that only Cryptic users can disable the account guard, and PWE users cant? There is no "Settings" tab in My Account, or "Main Menu" button in the billing section for us. I'm starting to think this was done just to weed out PWE f2p players.

What idiot created this application? It doesn't take in the possibly of the player moving or on vacation away from the main computer, and you have to use two of these account guard for the web site and the launcher, so you really only have 4 other moves. Cryptic and Perfect World, this is a very bad idea. You need to come up with another way to allow to guard an account. Maybe ask a bank with online banking on how they guard account information, and use that a model because there's none of these have a limited times in using the web site.

Not overly impressed with this. It's a reasonable idea, fairly unobtrusive and I can opt out. That's the good points

The bad point is it seems my son, to impatient to wait for the code to arrive in his email inbox pressed cancel. It returned him to the login screen and this time he wasn't asked for a code so was effectively able to bypass this "account guard".


I've just tried this myself. Got asked for the code. Hit cancel and was returned to the login screen with a message to contact support.

Tried to login again and this time I wasn't asked for a code, so was able to effectively bypass the account guard as well

the main problem with this system is it gives people a false sense of security. Make no mistake about it, this system does not secure your account our your personal information in any way. In fact, it will make it harder for you to get your account back if it is compromised.

The bank accounts I handle were sent Authenticators, and we (my company) was charged $50 each. No thanks.
