Every LoL player should secure their account as soon as possible.
There has been a lot of talk in the League of Legends community about Riot having to finally put in place some extra security measures that would make it harder to steal someone’s account.
This may seem ridiculous to people who have never experienced problems with account recovery, but the largest companies are increasingly exposed to all kinds of attacks. In case your LoL password is leaked somewhere, now you have the option to protect yourself from losing your gaming possessions.
Finally, LoL introduces multi-step verification
It took several years, but it finally is here. It works very simply:
Each time you log in, you will receive an email with a unique six-digit code. Just enter this code in the appropriate field and continue logging in as normal.
If you have different passwords for LoL and e-mail, you will be able to feel relatively safe. How to turn it on?
- Log in to your account on the Riot website.
- Go to the Login and Security tab.
- Find the 2-Step Verification tab.
- Click the Enable button.
- Read the content of the message and click Enable if you are sure of your decision.
Does this mean that you will have to enter this code every time? Not if you don’t want it. Under the window with the code, you will be able to mark the memory of the device for 30 days.
Under the tab where you enter your multi-step verification code, you will see a box in the launcher saying “Remember this program for 30 days”. Select it and no code entry will be required for the entire month. Just remember to only use this option on a trusted device, such as your personal computer or phone.
In fact, everyone today should protect their account in this way.
Of course, everyone expects that Riot will still use additional security measures, such as confirmation via phone or some additional verification. So far, unfortunately, there is no information on this subject.
