Guild Wars 2: SMS Account Security added
In the near future, Guild Wars 2 players will be asked to associate a telephone number with their account as part of a new move to keep player accounts safe from hacking.
The new system will begin immediately but will roll out in stages. Over time, new accounts will be required to utilize the new SMS system.
To thank our players for keeping their accounts secure, we’re offering a Mini Mystical Dragon to everyone who applies either a phone number or an authenticator to their account. If you want the mini dragon today, you can of course sign up for two-factor authentication immediately. If you prefer to use phone-based security, you should have no more than two weeks to wait until it’s available for your account.
