Earlier in the month, we brought you news regarding the Security Token, Square Enix's upcoming hand-held device to protect against account theft and hacking. This morning, it was released that the Security Token will be available via purchase on Playonline.com starting on April 7th, 2009 at a cost of $9.99 per token. Likewise, it has been revealed that the secret in-game bonus will be the "Mog Satchel", an effect that doubles the current inventory space of all characters registered on your Playonline account.
The Square Enix Security Token, previously announced here on Topics, will be available for purchase via the PlayOnline Viewer on Tuesday, April 7th, 2009. The token greatly increases the security of PlayOnline accounts by requiring users log on using a constantly changing one-time password that is displayed on the token.
Also set to debut alongside the release of the Square Enix Security Token is the new "Square Enix Account" system. Square Enix Accounts will be compatible with FINAL FANTASY XI and PlayOnline, as well as other future online services. Users must first register a Square Enix Account, which is a free service, in order to make use of the security token.
