In our first big developer post of the week, Phillip_BW announced that as a result of the changes being made on April 2nd from using email addresses to display names, there will be some new features coming to your Star Wars: The Old Republic account services page.

On April 2nd, we are changing some aspects of our Authentication system. In our first notification of the most visible of the changes on March 5th we were still waiting on the last few background systems to be confirmed as ready. Now that they are ready, today’s notification also includes those changes as well.
On April 2nd, the following changes are going live:
- Display Name only login
- Email Security Code replacing Security Questions and Answers during Authentication
- Self-service for Forgot my Display Name
Other changes we are aiming for within April, but not necessarily on April 2nd:
- Self-service for Lost my Security Key
- Self-service for Remove my Security Key
- Self-service for Move my Security Key

These are some very welcome tools for players to enhance account security and reduce the number of calls to BioWare’s Customer Service folks. Looking forward to seeing these new options for players! What do you all think? Leave a comment below!
