This will help protect our accounts from this end; not only our profiles where name changes, email communication and authenticator is keep, if the hijacker can come into this end easily there is no stopping him logging in-game.

It would be easier at this stage to workout the login at this end, once that's done they can see a partial email, authenticator at there finger tips. I feel you need good security throughout the website not just in-game. The forums is a huge security risk for accounts at risk.


I don't really know what you're trying to say. How would hiding your username / login email on the website prevent a hijacker from gaining access to your account?

I assume Dong U Dead possibly means that once a hijacker uses an alt to login they have the ability to find a way to hack further into your system towards other player accounts.
This assumption may originate from the fact that half of our emailadressess are made unreadable with *'s.

That is not possible, if I've read that right. Nor relevant to hiding usernames on the website login flow.

If someone's able to guess your email address from the information provided, they don't need to be able to login, as the same information is provided during account recovery for the benefit of the legitimate user.

I am no expert. All I know the better the security the safer you are. And I am shocked that the security in the RSOF hasn't got the same measures as in-game. I just feel it has the same importance.

You partially hide our email in our accounts <- why for this and not for logging into RSOF??


- You are logging into RSOF and someone walked in on you and see's the information - your email address, your username which may be different than your in-game name which is extra security - not all family members, flatmates, boarders, workmates etc are honest.

I just feel the whole of RS should have good security, not just partial.

Hiding your RSOF login username will not increase security.

RS client is different because streamers will want to protect their information while streaming. You're planning to stream yourself using the RS website or RSOF, are you?
