The application will then request the following information. Enter your user information into the corresponding fields and select OK to complete the registration:
• Your Square Enix ID (The ID used when generating the registration password)

• The registration password (This will have been sent to your registered e-mail address)
Once registration is complete, a One-Time Password will be displayed. A new One-Time Password will be generated every time the application is launched. Make sure to enter your Square Enix ID, Square Enix password, and the displayed One-Time Password when logging in to your account.
You will now be able to enjoy online gaming with maximum security!
