We are going to be introducing an additional way for you to keep your account safe! When we detect that your viewer is being accessed from a new device, we’ll send you an email that looks like this: SUBJECT: Important: [FIRSTNAME LASTNAME] accessed Second Life from a new machine. Your Second Life account has been accessed from a new machine. If you recently logged in to Second Life from a new device you may ignore this mail. Account: [FIRSTNAME LASTNAME] Time: [TIME IN SLT, example 2022-02-11 09:09.00 SLT] Originating IP Address: [IP ADDRESS OF NEW COMPUTER] If this was you, you don’t need to do anything. If not, we will help you secure your account: What To Do If Your Account Has Been Compromised We are pleased to bring you this industry standard to help protect your SL account. Make sure to verify your email address to receive these notifications. We recently introduced Multi-Factor Authentication, another industry standard, as another layer of account protection. Read about it at https://second.life/mfa UPDATE: This feature is available as of 2/28 for accounts with a verified email address.
Today we’re introducing an additional way for you to protect your account! Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is now available to all residents on their accounts. MFA is an additional step to prove your identity before gaining access to sensitive information or actions on your account. It provides an extra layer of security to supplement your username and password. Widely adopted by many products, MFA is an industry standard. How does it work? You can learn more about MFA, find out what you’ll need to do, and activate it in the knowledge base article! You will need to take action in order to activate MFA. It is entirely opt-in. Go to accounts.secondlife.com/mfa/status and get started! Note: MFA adds protection only to your accounts.secondlife.com login. MFA does not affect how you log in to the SL Viewer. If you activate MFA, you should continue to change your password regularly and choose strong passwords. In future releases we plan to extend MFA’s protections to additional pages on secondlife.com, the marketplace, and the viewer. We are also exploring an email-based implementation.
