League of Legends news » Saved Login Credentials Coming Soon
Starting soon on the PBE and then rolling out worldwide, League will be updated to include saved login credentials. This comes with a redesigned login flow that allows you to skip the login screen most of the time if you store your username and password. The update also has some under-the-hood changes to prepare for additional optimizations to the client in the upcoming years: two-factor authentication, background patching, and yes, one day, support for our next game.
What do I have to do to get the update?
Nothing! When it’s available in your region, it’ll download and install automatically. On the login screen you’ll have the option to click “Stay Signed In,” which will keep you logged in – no need to type your name or password every time you log in on the same computer.
Will the login screen look any different?
Because you'll skip the login screen once you've stored your credentials and get into game quicker, we're going to have them include static images without background music. Most of the time, double clicking the League of Legends shortcut will send you straight to game, so we didn’t want to have flashy or resource-intensive things you’ll barely ever see. This change also frees up the art and music teams to put more time into other exciting projects.
When will saved login credentials be available?
We’re going to roll it out slowly, starting with a small number of players on PBE before we move it to live. We don’t have exact dates yet, but we will be sure to let you know.
When is the other stuff coming?
Two-factor authentication and background patching are both scheduled to release later this year. We’ll keep you updated on both of those when we have more information.
