Accountsicherheit für Spieler


Master Sergeant
dear players, we are seeing an increasing number of attempts to gain access to players' forum accounts. To secure your accounts, please make sure you use a strong password. The criteria of a secure password are: Various of the following options: - 14 characters - Letters (upper and lower case) - Special character - The Diceware or phrase method - Use of at least 4 random words (The average length of each word should be at least 4.2 characters.) -Separation of these words by special characters You should also activate 2-factor authentication for your forum accounts, you can do this here: https://forum.the-west.de/index.php?account/security Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an additional layer of security that requires a second form of verification in addition to the password when logging in. This means that even if someone else gets hold of your password, they won't be able to log in without the second form of verification. By enabling 2FA, you not only protect yourself, but also help protect the entire community. With so many people relying on our forum, it's important that we all do our part to keep it a safe place. 2FA can be activated in just a few simple steps. Once you've activated it, you'll be prompted to enter a code every time you log in. We understand that some of you may find this process annoying, but the added security is worth it. If you have any questions or need help setting up 2FA, don't hesitate to contact us. Let's work together to make the forum safe for everyone. Thank you for your cooperation! Your The West team

Yes, we need 2FA for in game accounts. Those are more important than these on forum. It's strange and even ironic that there is 2FA on the forum and not on the game and that the forum is much better optimized for mobile than the game.
