Riot Games Is In The Process Of Deleting Some “Very Inactive Accounts”
You probably don’t have anything to worry about…probably.
Riot Games recently launched two-factor authentication (F2A) for their Riot accounts. Players can now switch to this new authentication if they would like to have a bit more security with their very precious information. Continuing the trend of improved player security leads us to Riot Games’ next endeavor, and that is to delete "very inactive accounts".
Riot Games says that “We’re committed to only keeping data around for as long as necessary, and this means removing accounts that both haven been active in a while and never did much to begin with (e.g., never bought anything, played many games, unlocked much content, etc.” This system will protect a player's privacy by removing their data as they themselves have again, been inactive for some time
So, what exactly warrants an "inactive" account? Well, if an account has not been logged into across any games, applications, or web properties for over three years–that would be inactive. In addition, an account must meet all the following criteria in order to be eligible for deletion as a result of inactivity.
• Account is inactive
• Account did not purchase any game currency in its lifetime
• Account did not receive any game currency in its lifetime
• Account has played fewer than 20 hours
• Account does not own any rare limited edition game entitlements
If a player's account is deleted, said person will receive an email at the email address used to create the account. This new system will be active for the next few months, so if a player receives an email about the possibility of their account being deleted they can head over to Player Support to opt-out of the account deletion.
