The role-playing game Final Fantasy 14 is presently being targeted by a third party. As a result, square Enix advises players who use passwords or emails that may be guessed easily to immediately change such passwords and enable two-factor authentication on their accounts.

According to a recent blog post on the main site for Final Fantasy 14, a third party is trying to enter Square Enix‘s account management servers by using private details collected from various hacked websites. Unfortunately, we do not know who this third party is. That said, if your email address and password for Final Fantasy 14 are the same as your email address and password for almost every other site, you may wish to create a unique password for your Final Fantasy 14 account and update it to prevent your account from being compromised.

Whether you are having trouble logging in, Square Enix may have already issued an email with instructions on how to reset your password to the email account you used to register for the service.

You can check your inbox to see if you have received this message. In addition to the other precautions you should take, Square Enix advises that you take the additional step of utilizing one-time passwords so that you may be certain that you have the highest level of security possible.
