ArenaNet president and loose sweater aficionado Mike O'Brien has written just about the most all-encompassing layman's guide to account security you'll ever need to reference. Discussed is not only pertinent information regarding the Guild Wars 2 security situation, including:
- email authentication
- upcoming two-step authentication
- preparatory password blacklisting
- possible mandatory password changes
- credit card security
but also universally helpful information about where hackers are obtaining account information, how they're using it, what they're using it for, and what steps you can take to protect all of your internet stuff. It's just a great article to point any technologically-impaired people towards if you need an explanation.
So have you been inspired to go change your password immediately, or are you feeling pretty comfortable with "twilightxx1"?
