      This is actually pretty easy to enforce.

      It's about time that KI upgrade their daily quizzies, that have been remaining the same for years. It would be simple to make a set of questions about security, and make it as the mandatory 10th quiz every day.

      Stuff like

      Q. What is KI support address?

      1. [email protected]
      2. [email protected]
      3. ...
      4. ...

      Etc..


      Repeating the questions over and over would end putting the basic information into people mind, and particularly into those who need the most, IE the ones that are after free stuff...

      It is always good to have secondary security measures in place for all online accounts.

      I think details are needed on this unless KingsIsle plans to notify those of us that have accounts but do not long on regularly, Even though i no longer play I still have accounts with crowns on it.

      Apparently a malicious user was posting phishing links on certain trading servers that would lead to accounts being compromised if entered. There's not much information I can find regarding just how widespread this was; a few high profile individuals and possibly one developer have been named as possible victims.

      I have heard what is going on, but there are also people saying many different things.

      2FA is important for account security. I do think KI needs to implement it. I understand kids play this game since 2FA can require an additional device, but the kids today have phones/tablets of their own and even moreso due to the pandemic, so this shouldn't be an issue now.
