I haven't had much chance to have a good look around site until now, and must say awesome job :D
Any opinions I have, are mine alone and not those of the guild I represent

Just wondering.
Ive had an account on the website for quite a while but only started using it after I started commanding.

Yesterday I did the Authentication thing so I could see the entire forum.
But also yesterday when I got home I found out there had been attempts to log onto my account from different IP ranges.
So i quickly removed the authentication app and changed my information etc.

Since like 20:00 Dutch time last night I lost all access to the forum again.

It might just be a coincidence but ofc I was not pleased to see attempts to steal my account.
Is this authentication thing here to stay?

I just re-authenticated by logging into gw2 first, then accepting the app.
Ill keep an eye out to see if anything goes wrong and I'll keep you updated.

To be honest dansker will be able to answer this a lot better than I can, however I'm pretty sure the 'app' you authorise is the website and all you're doing is telling anet that it's ok to send it some (limited) account info. So all it sends is the game username eg. Olecas.9430 or whatever, current world id and some other stuff I can't remember but it certainly doesn't send us any possible way to access your account.

Could it narrow it down in a sense that someone may be able to see your email and guess that its the one you use for gw2 then yeah I suppose, but if you hide your email (as yours is) then people would have to hack website to get the email in the first place and assuming its the one you use for gw2 as forum account and gw2 can use separate emails and still be linked, they would then have to try and get past whatever security measures the game has as well.

I mean the effort they'd have to go to just in order to find your email to make an attempt at hacking your account from this authentication process is so stupidly high that it'd be completely pointless for them to even try. Sorry I've waffled on a bit but yeah it's very safe.

Have a nice day :)

Thanks for the reply. If anything happens I will keep you updated.

Ive got everything pretty secure as we speak. Gonna have to check this pc @ work. This is where I ran the authentication to begin with. Cause if they got in from here im gonna have to have a serious talk with the security team.

I can say that there is nothing on the site that will allow us to get access to your account login information

However you don't have to trust me on that, you can verify for yourself

First lets look at the information you give us

Quote
/v2/account currently gets you four basic pieces of information.
  • The user has a GW2 account
  • User

Im not saying you're hacking me or anything or I would not have authenticated again.
Just needed to disconnect anything I had authorized on my acc.

Just started a new job and yesterday was also the first time I logged on to my GW2 via work computer.
So at the moment im checking out if this pc is compromised.
I just noticed weird Chinese ip ranges trying to logon to my account.
So just wanted to check and see if this issue had occured for other people as well.

NP i just made the post a little detailed in case i have to answer a similar question like this later :)

Anyway i should probobly give you the standard recommendation of changing your password (even though i never follow that advice myself XD )

I suggest you to use "Google Authenticator" linked to your GW2 account. It's very safe... :)

Already using it mate, thats what gave me the message someone tried to log in but could not verify the google code.
Immediately changed my pass etc.
