Kytten Lebed Posted May 4, 2016 Share Posted May 4, 2016 For several years now many of the large MMO games have had some form of two factor authentication. Whether it be a physical token giving an authentiation number in addition to your password or the use of an authenticator app, or merely an email being sent in case the log in comes from an IP address your account does not log in from normally and making you authorize the log in before it can, it is time for Linden Labs to implement the same for Second Life.Every day you get these bots which are hacked accounts sending messages to multiple groups asking for money, or bots sending out malicious URL's hoping to catch people clicking links randomly or sending out malicious items that once opened or worn will wipe out a person's linden amount. It's becoming almost "wild west" like.And even those of us who have never been hacked and are scrupulous about security are affected at least indirectly because we get bombarded by these things, many times multiple times a day.There really is no good reason not to have two factor authorization of some sort to be able to log in to SL. I can't imagine it would take many resources for LL to write an iOS and Android app to authenticate or even just use the Google Authenticator. It really would reduce malicious activity greatly and provide a safer and more enjoyable in world experience for everyone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
