With MMO’s becoming popular these days, it’s never a bad idea to be a little paranoid about account security. Trion has provided Rift players a way to protect their accounts from the various hacks and scams that flood the net.
The Rift Mobile Authenticator is available for iOS and Android for free through the App Store and the Android Market. Launching the app generates a string of numbers, which are keyed to a time stamp through a black box operation that the login servers also use. Similar to the Blizzard mobile authenticator, it is almost impossible to come up with the exact combination of numbers in a twenty second time frame. Each number combination generated is unique and does not ever repeat sequence.
Do your due dilligence. If you pay for a game and pay a monthly fee, then do the right thing and secure your investment. After spending countless hours grinding and gearing don’t you think you owe it to yourself?
