GOG two-factor authentication will be mandatory to all accounts from October 24th

GOG, the popular DRM Free games store, will be adding two-step authentication on all existing GOG accounts from October 24th, improving the security of the platform.


The GOG already had an option for two-factor authentication which added to the GOG platform in March, giving users an extra layer of protection if they wanted to. But now two-factor will be mandatory security step to users by default. This new security update will protect users accounts, as nobody like to luaus their account or games.

While two-factor authentication is a great security tool, GOG does understand that a lot of gamers find this extra protection as an unnecessary waste of time and will allow users to opt-out of this security update. Details on how to opt out of GOG’s two-factor authentication here.
