Login Screen

The login screen is the first interface players can see once RuneScape has loaded. Currently users have three ways to login to RuneScape detailed below. Once logged in, users proceed to the Lobby.

Username & Password

This standard method of login prompts for the username and password. Note that the username is different from the account's display name.

For accounts created after 24th November 2010 this is the account's set email address. For accounts created before 24th November 2010 it is the initial account name - the first display name the account had.

Third-Party Connect

Main article: Using Facebook to log into RuneScape

It is possible for RuneScape players to associate their Facebook, Axeso5 or UOL accounts (from here on refered to as third-party accounts) with their RuneScape account. This allows the player to login by simply clicking the third-party buttons rather than by entering their username and password. Providing they are logged in to the third-party already, it provides a one-click login feature.

An existing RuneScape account can also be associated with a third-party account. Each third-party account can only be associated with 1 RuneScape account at a time meaning that attempting to add them to a second account will cause the first to be disassociated.

When the login button is clicked a pop-up window is created which accesses the third-party's website and provides the RuneScape information. If the user isn't already logged in to the third-party's website they are prompted to do so. Once this is performed the third-party website provides a piece of code that confirms you have logged in.
