Hello dear support team,

I have started the launcher on my PC, and I have clicked "Forgot password?".
After I have entered my email adress, I have received an link to a special new website, where ALL my accounts related to the mail adress are listed.

This are around 100 accounts.

In past I had to know the char name on the account, as a 2nd factor identification.
But on this website the account name and the chars on the account are listed.

This means, if somebody has access to my mail adress, the person can see all my accs and chars, and change the password without any problem?

As far as I rememeber, in past it was necessary to know the account name if I pressed the button "Forgot password?".



I have different passwords for all my accounts. I have offline spreadsheets for eve....
but if a hacker gets access to my fuckin email adress, he can change the password of each single account?
After changing the password, it is possible to change the mail adress and I would have no access to any account at all.

Totally stupid...

Activate their 2 pass thing if you're scared.

Or better yet, activate 2 factor authentication on your email account.

That would require to enter aroud 80 accounts in my smartphone.
I do not think, if that is a solution.

CCP messed up the safety, not me :(

I have already activated the 2 factor identification.

But there are many players, which neither know the situation at the moment, nor do they have a 2 factor identification for their mail account.

In past, it was not enough to have access to the mail account, to hack an eve online account.
But at the moment it is the easiest and best way.
