I think a remember account login at the client will be good, for prevent hackings with keyloggers

You do realise that makes it easier for a hacker as he just has to find out your password as your name is already saved (and thus can be tracked).

I don't understand what makes it so hard to remember your login information, we allow you to choose both accountname and password!

Well, for me it's not hard to remember it, but would be nice to have a "remember login information" option, at the player's risk, to login faster (aye, I be lazy).

Well, as Nilsson said, it's easier to locate the information than using keyloggers.

Take WoW for example, it even saves your account name with your actual account name in a folder called "Accounts", and in most cases you can just search for it in peoples Public C.
Anyhow, the only real reason to have such a system is to save a few seconds when signing in, and the only time you actually "gain" something login in fast is when you hammer the server when it's full...and that would just add more strain on the server, forcing it to have a even lower amount of people online at the same time.

Well, I'd ofc use it.
Though whether it will 'cause more problems than time saved is another issue all together.

Fact is, most other games (and even Steam which has my bank account details attached to it) allow your username to be even PUBLIC knowledge don't have too many issues. Though I think Phobos might be quite different to that.

I'm for it because I'd use it, but I'm against it if it becomes a reoccurring issue of people getting regularly 'hacked'. This early in the game though, its not going to be a high priority for people to hack others accounts.
