Secure your account to get a free month of Origin Access.
Origin Access

EA wants you to secure your accounts. To help incentivize you into being secure, they will give you a free month of Origin Access once you enable two-factor authentication.

While you probably should have had 2FA enabled for this and every other account already, this should help to give you that last little push you need to get it done. It's quick and typically painless, except if you somehow stub your toe.

EA's take on two-factor authentication is simply called login verification. They will send you a special code via text, email, phone call, or an authenticator app like Authy. This one-time use code is used in addition to your username and a strong password.

This special promotion from EA will run from now through to the end of the month. This month was chosen because it's apparently National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. That sounds like a good as time as any. If you enable 2FA in October, you'll get your free month starting November 1, 2019.

As a bonus, EA will add in an extra month of Origin Access for those that already have 2FA enabled and those that are already subscribed. This applies to both Origin Access Basic subscribers and those subscribed to Origin Access Premier.
