Being an avid traveler of the Character Bazaar, I have bought/sold many’a toon. In doing so I always feel a bit eery giving someone my account name to initiate a transfer for a character that I am purchasing. Feels strange giving out 1/2 of the puzzle to someone who now could start to guess passwords using my account name.
I thought it would be a decent idea to allow you to generate a hash of sorts inside your Account Management area that you can give to people for the purpose of buying/selling. This hash is essentially a link to your account name thats only purpose is for character transfers. Now you no longer have to divulge your account names to strangers.
Yes there are arguments against my concern:
- enable 2 factor auth
- update your passwords regularly
- make them very unique passwords and use a password manager to store them
