GOG.com is informing users
that two-step authentication is being implemented
for all accounts this week to increase security for the DRM-free game store.
This will be enabled by default, but they will allow opt-outs. Here's the
On October 24th, we will start enabling Two-step login on
all current accounts, with a goal to increase your account’s security. Once
enabled, the first time you log in from a new device or network, we will send
you an email with a unique code, which must be entered in order to proceed. If
you’re using GOG mostly from home or work, you should only be required to use
the Two-step code very rarely.
Our Two-step login process is very user-friendly, so we suggest that you give it
a try, but if you do not wish to use it for some reason,
click this link
(before October 24th) or disable it in your
Account Settings (after
October 24th). However, we strongly discourage this, so please be aware that you
would be doing this at your own risk.
