What is WildStar Two-Step Verification?
Two-Step Verification is a system that requires you to prove your identity when logging into the game, in addition to inputting your normal account name and password. This is done using an app that you install on a mobile device. Apple® iOS, and Google® Android are both supported. The app provides a special code that you are asked to enter after inputting your account name and password. This code is unique to your account and changes every 30 seconds. Whether you’re playing at home or from a public location, this extra layer of security will help keep your account safe by requiring mobile verification in addition to your regular log-in credentials.

Does the NC Account use Two-Step Verification for additional security?
No, the NC Account system is protected by an IP-Verification process separate from the Two-Step Verification system. Each time the NC Account is accessed by a new IP Address, the account owner will need to verify the IP address via an automated email sent to the email address linked to the NC Account.
What third party Two-Step Verification programs does Wildstar support?

Will changing the email address on my NC Account deactivate the Two-Step Verification on my Wildstar account?
No, changing the email address of your NC Account will not deactivate the Two-Step Verification protection on your Wildstar account. The game account is still listed as protected in our database. Only deactivating Two-Step Verification on the game account will deactivate that Two-Step Verification protection.
