Security has kind of been a hot topic in Guild Wars 2. ArenaNet announced a couple weeks ago that they were working on bringing two-factor authentication into play, and that joyous day has arrived! A new post on the official forums introduces players to mobile two-factor security.

ArenaNet is using Google's authenticator, which is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, and players will use this authenticator to verify devices rather than the previous email authentication system. The team is advising people that this is currently a beta feature, and already has two changes planned for the near future. Soon, unlinking the mobile authentication system will require additional codes, and users will have an option to remember current networks rather than having to authenticate every login.

Visit the official post for complete details for setting up the authentication system.
