Krafton Removes Battlegrounds Mobile India OTP Log In Requirement Ahead of Release Date
Earlier today it was reported that Krafton had updated the official Battlegrounds Mobile India website with details regarding what appeared to be mandatory OTP authentication for log in. For the unbeknownst Battlegrounds Mobile India is the nation’s version of PUBG Mobile. The OTP log in addition seems to be a drastic change versus PUBG Mobile’s login options that include Google Play, guest accounts, Twitter, and Facebook. These OTP log in requirements have now been removed from the site along with a host other details that were present on its support section. Checking the page gives you ‘No such FAQ found’ error message.
When they were listed however, Gadgets 360 discovered that they were on an OTP authentication section on the Battlegrounds Mobile India support page. Details included the ability for a user to punch in a ‘Verify code’ three times after which it won’t work. Krafton stated that these codes expire after five minutes and players can request ten of them a day. Interestingly a single phone number can have upto ten accounts.
If true, this may impact any form of data migration that’s been rumoured for awhile what with Indian PUBG Mobile users being able to access their data despite that game’s ongoing ban.
It’ll be interesting to see if these details make a return what with a Battlegrounds Mobile India release date expected soon.
IGN India reported that the Battlegrounds Mobile India release date is slated for June 18. This was backed up by several insiders as well.
Previously, Krafton stated that a Battlegrounds Mobile India release date is “closer than you think”. Though keep in mind that Krafton stayed silent regarding ongoing racism in the Battlegrounds Mobile community despite repeated requests for comment directed at India boss Aneesh Aravind and Chairman CH Kim.
That said, there doesn’t seem to be any pushback from the Indian government with an RTI revealing that it won’t be preemptively banning Battlegrounds Mobile India despite members from the nation’s biggest political parties, Congress and BJP asking Prime Minister Modi to step in and stop the game’s release.
