How does the WildStar Authenticator work?
First, you will log in to WildStar as normal, with your account name and password. Next, you’ll be asked for a six-digit numeric code from the authenticator. At this point, simply enter the code provided by the authenticator to proceed using your mouse (your numpad will be disabled during this step). Without this code, no one will be able to log in to your account. This effectively prevents attackers from unauthorized use of your account.
How do I get the WildStar Authenticator?
Visit the app store for your mobile platform of choice, and locate the “Google Authenticator” app. This app is provided free of charge. The two-step verification scheme used for WildStar is fully compatible with this app.
Can I use the same authenticator for multiple WildStar accounts?
Each WildStar account will be provided with a separate, unique authenticator “secret code.” This code cannot be shared between accounts. However, the Google Authenticator app does support linking multiple accounts, each with their own unique secret code.
What should I do if I lose or want to unlink the mobile device linked to my account?
You can unlink the authenticator at any time by logging in to Account Management and proceeding to the Security section. Please note that to log in while two-step verification is configured on your account, you will need to have access to your mobile device.
If you want to unlink your authenticator but no longer have access to your mobile device and do not have the CODE, you can now unlink your authenticator without having to contact support. To do this, please follow the steps found HERE
How do I link the authenticator to a new device?
Begin by unlinking the authenticator from your old device via the Security section of Account Management. Once this is completed, simply follow the original procedure to link your account to the new device.
