Attention iPhone and iPod users, you now have an option for an additional layer of protection for your SWTOR account and who doesn’t want that when the game is as popular as it already seems to be? Nothing is more frustrating that putting a lot of time and money into a game and having your account hacked.
The authenticator gives you that extra layer of security so you can worry less about someone else being able to get into your account. But if you already use an iDevice, it makes it easier to keep your authenticator right on your device instead of having to keep up with that little keychain thingy.
“Keep your Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ account protected with the official Star Wars: The Old Republic Mobile Security Key app for your iPhone and iPod Touch! The Star Wars: The Old Republic Mobile Security Key app is an optional program that will allow you to apply an additional layer of protection to your Star Wars: The Old Republic account.”
For now, the app is free. No word yet on whether or not that will change in the future. You can download it now from the iTunes store and follow the directions to set it up and use it. If you already have it, drop us a line and let us know what you think. Easy to use? Helpful? Do you feel like your account is more secure?
