Why I have option to save password if I get this re-entering request every time I join game?
I mean, password is already strong enough connected to my phone number: I really dont need one more security check :D

Anyone have idea why this is happening?

I get this message about once a month, I'd say.

Parameters:

  • three different PCs in three different cities (changing daily, weekly)
  • only playing WoWs
  • WoWs launcher (no Game Center)
  • always same connection type on each PC
  • different VPNs on one PC (Swiss, Germany)
  • complex password
  • mobile phone number connected

 

//edit

Just tried changing my VPN to Russia, South Afrika and Hong Kong. Didn't have to re-enter my password.

Now i have to be slightly careful here in what i say as this involves the day job.

Basically Wargaming operates a security system for account management based on the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE series of questions for login purposes based on usual activity of an individual. 

For example if i logged on at 9pm GMT, from my usual PC so my MAC address is the same and my ISP has not decided to break the IP address then i will not be asked to put the password in.

BUT if i logged in at 2am, from a different PC in the Netherlands then the security system would be triggered as this is outside the normal pattern of activity. 

If your ISP changes your DNS termination point, IP address or even data center egress point, it can trigger the security system. 
things have come on along way from the verified by visa days.

It could be if your IP address is changing when you switch between wifi and cabnle or the mac address if it's different hardware in your setup that provides cable connection and wifi connection
