After last night's patch, a lot of users were curious as to why they weren't prompted to enter their authentication code before logging in to Guild Wars 2. Mike Lewis was there to let people know that they implemented their "remember this network" feature last night and that if you had already selected it before it was in place, it would automatically use that setting:
First and foremost: please be aware that your accounts are still protected by the mobile authenticator at this time.
Here’s what has happened:
- We have been developing a “remember this network” feature for the mobile authenticator in line with the same feature used by email authentication
- This feature became active tonight during the planned maintenance updates
- For any account which has already selected to remember a network, the mobile authenticator will respect your existing settings
- This means that if you are logging in from a location that you permitted via email authentication, the mobile authenticator will not currently prompt you for a secondary code
This is the result of an oversight on my part and I’d like to apologize for any uncertainty and worry. We’ve double checked the systems and authentication is working correctly for unverified logins.
Unlinking the authenticator was temporarily disabled due to a configuration accident; this has been corrected and should work again.
For the moment we do not have a user interface for editing your “remembered” network locations. As a result, please be very cautious when selecting to allow new locations from the emails (or, in the near future, from the mobile authenticator login screen).
Thanks for bearing with us while we get the rest of the mobile authenticator features ready to go. [Source]
