Tips to keep your Valorant account safe

  •  Use a password manager
    If you have trouble remembering your password, use a password manager. Password managers take care of creating secure passwords for most of your accounts.

  • Choose a secure password
    If you are choosing a password, choose a few unrelated, uncommon words that aren't in the dictionary. A password's strength increases with length and randomness. Try to keep it as random as possible.

  • Protect your email account
    Your email address is linked to all your Riot Games through your account. Many sites, games, and apps will reset passwords if you have access to the associated email. Most email providers have their own multi-factor authentication, so take the proper precautions with them.
