any plans in adding
Special Characters
to passwords so we can secure our accounts better.. and the use of
security keys
like-
Yubikeys
to even further secure our accounts to secure our accounts, a simple button press or a nfc tap on the mobile. instead of authenticator and putting the number in.
to improve security for everybody on the game

not sure if this the right forum to ask.. as on runescape twitch stream, is pointless to ask on.
questions get ignored.. and this is a important one to keeping our accounts secure.

just remember seeing something on the game news to suggest improving account security,

Sorry but, that does not answer what I am asking.

I am looking to see if Jagex is thinking about adding Security Keys as a security feature we can use. Instead of SMS and the ability to add two keys instead of one, incase we lost the main key..

As I would feel more comfortable with security keys instead of SMS..
As Sim Jacking happens and they can fool your network provider so they get your SMS code and log into your account.

And the special characters in passwords, and length of password to be longer if you wish for it to be a long password with special characters..

P.S..
If you reply with a answer like that again I will ignore it.
As it was totally irrelevant to what I am asking.

Player Support Blog - Account Security

"We’re updating our systems to allow more complex passwords to be set, and adding user guides that help users create them. We're also looking into how we can support password managers."

There's no mention of "security keys" anywhere.

Jagex does not use SMS-related systems. All communications run through your Account Messages on the RuneScape website and the email associated with your RuneScape account.

EDIT: It's also safe to assume that anyone capable of bypassing 2FA and your password via a SIM jack aren't the kind of people going for RuneScape accounts.
