Riot announces authentication in two steps

It was practically incomprehensible that Riot Games , a developer with video games as successful and multitudinous as League of Legends or Valorant, had not enabled a two-step authentication in the players’ accounts. Therefore, after a long time, the Californian company has just announced a system called multifactor authentication that minimizes the risks and problems associated with hacking accounts.
