We, at Pearl Abyss, want to help our Adventurers keep their valuable account safe, and that’s why we’ve prepared the Black Desert Online Security Campaign event to spread the word!
Set Up OTP to Protect Your Account and Get Special Rewards!
Wait! What’s OTP?
A One-Time Password, also referred to as OTP, is a “dynamic/temporary” password that is valid for one login. Instead of a static or fixed password, it is a randomly generated dynamic/temporary password that was created to mitigate the risk from using the same password repeatedly. Although there are some hurdles with the set up and authentication, this is still a reliable way to keep your account safer!
