Jagex announces new account security for RuneScape

Account security is a pretty big deal. Because it's a pretty big deal, Jagex has created the Jagex Account Guardian (J.A.G.) to help RuneScape players to better manage and defend their own security. Players can use the J.A.G. to connect specific trusted devices with their accounts for an extra line of defense. After the J.A.G. has been enabled on an account, any attempts to play from an untrusted device will require the user to go through additional steps of verification.

Mark Gerhard, CEO of Jagex, says that "Ensuring the integrity and security of our valued community's information has always been a top priority," and adds that Jagex is taking the responsibility of protecting players' investments very seriously.
