Good Idea.
Does this add a form of two factor auth like the "authenticator" from another big mmo developer? :)


(*edit: Dont know why I got neg rep for this...)

An excellent feature to give peace of mind. After having spent more Euros on this game than I would ever like my wife to find out about  :Smile-hiding: , the last thing I want is some scum sucking hacker stealing my account.

Wargaming giving out "free" gold? Seems legit - I've only got 230 gold left from the Behind the Lines contest, it needs a top-up...

Taken from the portal for those who can't access it:

The security of your Wargaming account is an important concern.  In the past, the best way of ensuring account security was to choose a complex password and to keep it secret from everyone.  We are now pleased to be able to offer another layer of security in the form of linking your account to your mobile phone! When linked, you’ll be sent a unique confirmation code to enter on our page in order to validate all your security sensitive requests. That way we ensure a better account security and stronger fraud protection for everyone.

This new feature will be implemented on Wednesday 31st October.  Adding the feature to your account is completely voluntary and is not just absolutely free, we’ll even give 100 gold to everyone who uses it!

Linking your account to your phone gives you the following:
  • A higher level of security for your account, absolutely free.
  • The ability to quickly regain control of your account should your password or email be compromised by a virus or keylogger.
  • Mobile confirmation for important account security actions (such as password changes), or purchases made through our portal.
  • More features to come!

When you bind your account to your mobile phone, the number will only be used to send you a SMS with the codes. We will never use your phone number to send spam, either from ourselves or any third party companies.

Does his mean that the number given to WG will not be given to any other source? Are the numbers used in marketing otherwise?

If someone from WG could give an official answer, I'd appreciate this.
