Due to recent events, we have taken extra steps to provide more security for our players and for ScapeRune by introducing email verification. With the introduction of email verification accounts will automatically become more secure by adding that extra step for getting into your account. Players will still login with their username, however they will be required to have a verified email before gaining access to the game.
Players who create an account after August 13th, 2018
will be prompted to register an email during the registration process. Those who have created their account before the given date will be redirected to a page asking to register an email on their account (see below). You may not register multiple accounts under the same email.
Once you've registered the email to the account, check your inbox for the verification email. Inside will contain a 4-digit verification code
and a unique verification link
in the form of a button. Simply enter the 4-digit pin on the page to verify your email and gain access to the game (see below).
Those who attempt to log in-game without a verified email address will be prompted with a login response stating to verify their email before playing (see below). The game client will automatically launch the website to the appropriate page to do so.
With the introduction of email addresses, we will be phasing out recovery questions as the primary recovery option and will be using email recovery. You will, however, still be able to set recovery questions. Those who do not have a verified email address will be prompted to use recovery questions to recover their account.
