Good news for League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics and VALORANT players: Riot Games has announced on Jan. 20 that they have launched multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all Riot accounts. Players may now prevent hackers from stealing their accounts or make it significantly harder to do so.
The account security feature is available to players who have verified their email addresses in the past. For those who did not, they will need to verify their emails before unlocking the feature.
Players may then log in from anywhere if they can enter the code that Riot Games has sent them via email. From there, they can choose to “remember” their location for 30 days, removing the need to provide a code every time they log in for that duration. The publisher will still send an email if a player logs in from a different computer or IP address.
Those who have no longer access to their old email address were invited to submit a ticket through the player support portal.
As for those who hate the sudden change, they may deactivate the option online (through web browser) at the Sign-in & Security tab in their account options.
