PSA: Update your SWTOR iOS security key app soon

    
8
As you may have heard, yesterday Apple announced that its upcoming iOS 11 will nix any and all support for 32-bit applications and devices, effectively killing older games and utilities that haven’t been updated to the newer 64-bit standard.

This generally shouldn’t be a problem for most iPhone and iPad MMO applications, although one Redditor noted that an older security key app for Star Wars: The Old Republic that might still be in circulation will be among those programs affected by the new operating system. There is a newer security key app out there, so if you use two-factor authentication for SWTOR, make sure you have the 2015 version of the app instead of the older launch edition.

As someone who loves to make fun of anyone calling themselves a gamer while on an Apple product, this is the first time I have to give kudos to Apple for doing something Windows should have done long ago. If you’re running a 32 bit system, it’s time for you to unplug and throw the antique away.

Or you could use something like Google’s Authenticator. Personally I’m not a big fan of some of the more “specific” authenticator’s. They tend to be spotty on updates etc. I include the hardware versions that came with SWTOR or that you could order from Blizzard for their games. I’ve had all of them and I prefer other authenticators.

I’m still using the key fob I got at SWTOR launch. I’m surprised it still works, so never saw the need to change over. Now I do!

Thank you for the head’s up!

i think the key fob will still work. it is just the old app on apple devices that won’t work.

It’s an older key authentication code but it checks out. I was about to approve them.
