Even if you have never had your MMO account stolen before, you probably know somebody who has suffered this fate. It's absolutely brutal. Carbine is at war with botters, gold sellers and account stealers in an effort to make WildStar as terrific a game experience as possible. But they need everyone's help and have provided a tool for every player to secure their own account: 2-step verification. All this means is that in addition to a normal password, you set up a second login code through Google authenticator. It's free, easy to set up and to use -- instructions are right here.

In-game title of Certifiably Certified
