Hi CCP,

Could you please add Calculator verification support for account security? Since i still see alot of people getting hacked. A nice android and ios app would do and it seems it's not that hard to implement? Just an idea...

I don't know what that means, nor do I have an android or an ios phone.

Why shouldn't I get the same level of security as you people with your four hundred dollar telephones?


(Also, those code keyring things I forgot the name of are coming soon(tm) I believe.)

how does a app hack into a account ..mine is secure no one knows my login or password and there's no way they can get it unless they use my personal home pc and then its a 1 in Billion chance they would figure out my password sense the client doesn't store that info

As I point out every time this thread comes around. In the end, the security of your login and password is your responsibility. It's not CCP's job to protect your account if you (intentionally or unintentionally) give your login information to someone else, their responsibility is protecting the login servers so only someone with your login info can log in.

1) what is calculator verification?

2) how can an app help with account security, as it only would use the API? And if it went further and used account details, then it would decrease and not increase security.

With calculator verification i mean that you have a calculator that generates a code that you need to fill out in adition to your name and pasword. This can come in the form of a fisical calculator u could order or in the form of a smartphone app. This can be configured to not always show as long you login at the same ip adres. Blizzard makes use of this now for some time and its verry succesfull.

Ofcourse you are responsible for your login info and people that spread them arround are idiots in my opinion. But still hackers can find a way to infiltrate and obtain your details somehow (trough worm or some kind of virus). Ok this is still your own responsability whenever you download something or whatever. But then again the calculator would eliminate alot of problems on that part.

I heard that some got such calculator on fanfest or something or that they planned to? but i dont see a real implemetation of such security option..

I dont say u need blindly follow other companies, but this extra security is a good selution and is used by more mmorpg's out there.

Sorry for my bad english, i hope all can understand what i am trying to say ^^
