Is your account secure?

By ArcaneLustre

TL;DR: We’re installing a button in the client that will make it easier than ever before for you to verify your email address and reduce the danger of account theft.

Anybody who’s ever played a squishy marksman like Kog’Maw understands the importance of having a layer of protection between you and the opposing team. The League of Legends accounts we’ve levelled up over many hours – and, for those who’ve purchased skins, spent hard-earned money – represent a significant investment. This is why it pains us to hear from players who’ve lost control of their account after sharing their log-in details with an untrustworthy acquaintance or had it hacked due to a weak password (which is, sadly, easy as ABC123).

In order to beef up security and save players the frustration of compromised accounts, we’re installing a button in the client that will make it easier than ever for players to verify the email associated with their account. This means that nobody will be able to make changes to your League account without also having access to your email. We expect the entire process to take just one minute of your time – GG, etc. As a thank you for levelling up your account’s security, we’re adding a 4-win IP boost to your account for verifying your email address. The boost can take up to 48 hours to activate.

Don’t worry if you never see the email-verification button appear in your client. That means you’re already verified and good to go. If you have any other questions we haven’t covered, let us know and we’ll be happy to answer them.
