As a result of the rollout of Two-Factor Authentication and the Trusted Devices system, we are excited to share with you that during the March 17, 2022 update, the Secondary Password system will be removed from Mabinogi. Two-Factor Authentication provides better security for our Milletians and we believe that is will be a welcomed change.
The Two-Factor Authentication methods and Trusted Devices can be found in the "Password & Security" tab in the Account Settings page. We encourage all Milletians to set up one of the followings methods as soon as possible.
- Authenticator App: This option allows you to generate a secure, single-use passcode through your smartphone, using the free Google Authenticator app. This code will be required whenever you sign into your Nexon account while on a non-trusted computer, and changes frequently to prevent the code from being reusable or guessable.
- SMS: The SMS (Short Message Service, better known as Text Messaging) option will allow you to register your phone number with your Nexon account, where you will be texted a single-use passcode to be used alongside your password in order to log into your Nexon account while on a non-trusted computer.
- Email Verification: Upon logging into the Nexon Launcher on a non-trusted computer, you will be sent an email with a secure, single-use passcode required to verify your account. This is required of all Nexon accounts, in order to limit the likelihood of an unauthorized user gaining control over your account.
- Trusted Devices: Once you have completed email verification, you will be given the option to trust the device you are logging on with, allowing you to bypass both Email Verification and any other Two-Factor Authentication protections on that device for an even smoother login process. You can remove trusted devices via the Account Settings page at any time.
Again, we strongly encourage everyone to set up Two-Factor Authentication on your Nexon Accounts, either with an Authenticator App or through SMS (Text) Messaging. Doing so will help keep your account as safe and secure as can be. Please note that you can disable either factor whenever you wish, and while we encourage you to add an additional layer of security to your account in one of the manners described above, this is by no means a requirement to play Mabinogi.
