Bank pin is one of the best account safeguards. I wish the Bank pin protected our whole accounts, not just the bank.

Authenticator is good, I don't feel it's perfect though. I don't know why the forums are lacking in account security.

The forums should have better security which would then protect our accounts from this end.

Auth is like 1000x more superior protection.

Auth alone in better security than runescape password and pin combined.

Why should forums require any security at all? What's the worst that can happen if someone gets on the forums with ur account?

A bit of spam? Banned from the forums??

Ps, auth isn't as good as JAG tho :(

I miss JAG </3

I never contacted customer support to help unJAG my account. Why must I be punished for others lack of awesomeness?

Auth is pretty reasonable tho except I hate that jagex has essentially passed the buck on account security to our email providers.
Skillet? Skill no.

So much moot.

Please bear in mind that the OP merely made a very reasonable request to have sensitive areas of the website -- that is, everything concerning account management -- locked behind adequate security exactly like the game. He did not suggest adding anything to the forums, though I would personally not mind getting that either. I do not see how any level of additional security can be considered bad.

If we had better forum security this would protect sensitive areas of the website.

It should be the whole package, not just part of the package.

I don't want broadened runescape security. I use my phone for the forums and my computer for the game. I don't want two vulnerabilities and access points using the same security passes.

The forum/user name security should be separate securities.

And if we're talking about separate securities for the forums, I'd rather two securities on the game..
Skillet? Skill no.

^ so u want to increase forum security where nothing is at risk by reducing game security?

And it doesn't work anyway.

What if u delete ur auth that is required to enter the game AND (as I think ure suggesting) Will be required to enter Account Settings so u can remove auth??

Ya can't "require auth" to "remove auth".

This idea is a terrible idea. It doesn't work and it reduces actual game security.
