Hi! First of all, I hope I am in the right section :)

I think that having a bank pin and authenticator on all my accounts is necessary to keep my in game wealth/progress secure but having a separate authenticator and pin for every single one of them is quite a process.

So my question is: Is it possible to make it so we can sync all our accounts so we only need 1 bank pin and one authenticator for all of them without coming in conflict with account security?

Your forced to choose bank pins manually. You can make them all the same but there is no way to 'sync' them. As far as the authenticator goes, I am not quite sure, but on mine I took a photo with my phone of the scan, and it automatically threw my Login (or user I forget) under that number set. So multiple accounts would be easy to recognize. I doubt there is a sync for that though.

Unfortunately not.

The Authenticator uses industry standard technology known as OAuth 2.0 which uses your account username & the current time to create a unique code for your authenticator app & our servers to confirm its you.

If we had "parent" accounts and you only had to login once, that would solve this for you. For now, you'll have to continue having several accounts listed and enabled.

Thanks for answers :) I like the idea of having some sort of parent account. It was something like that I was thinking about. I imagine that the overall account security would improve with faster, simpler log ins.

It would make it easier to just add accounts to the parent account and have one global log in than to go trough the process of remembering a lot of different log ins and pins.

Maybe even with some sort of drop down menu in the lobby to switch between accounts.
