Authentifizierungs-Service über Handy

Die Entwickler von "Rift: Planes of Telara" implementierten nun einen Authentifizierungs-Service welches ab sofort für auf Android basierenden Handy verfügbar ist.

Seit dem Lauch des beliebten MMORPGs hatten die Entwickler die selben Probleme wie alle großen Titel des Genres mit der Account-Sicherheit. Ab sofort gibt es im Android Marketplace den Mobile Authenticator gratis zum herunterladen.

Nach der Aktivierung wird zusätzlich zur Abfrage von Benutzername und Passwort auch ein vom Authenticator generierter Code verlangt. Dies soll eine zusätzliche Schicht für die Sicherheit Benutzer des MMORPGs darstellen.

Hi everyone,

It’s our pleasure to announce the release of the RIFT Mobile Authenticator for Android devices (v1.6 or higher). As mentioned earlier we have been hard at work developing and implementing two-factor authentication for multiple mobile devices in order to provide additional security options for our players.

Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security making it much harder for insidious individuals to gain unauthorized access to your account, even if your computer has been compromised. This is an entirely optional (but highly recommended!) security measure that offers users invaluable extra protection.

Players can download the Mobile Authenticator at no cost from the Android Marketplace. In addition we’re finalizing a version for Apple devices running iOS 3.0 or higher, the free app will be available to players on iTunes upon its release. We’ll announce more details about the iOS version once it’s available and we hope to release additional versions for other platforms and devices in the future.

To use the authenticator simply run the patcher to login to the game as you normally would. When prompted, provide the code generated by the application on your Android device in addition to your username and password.

As always we encourage you to maintain a strong password even with the use of an authenticator. Never share your passwords with others and avoid links or sites you don’t trust or are unfamiliar with.

We’ll continue to develop new ways to ensure your adventures in Telara are safe and secure so you can focus on enjoying the game. You can activate your authenticator in your account center and encourage you to share your feedback and questions in this thread.

Thanks for playing!
