API Key Management[edit]

API keys are a way to grant third-party tools and applications partial read-only access to your Guild Wars 2 account. To use them, create a key, then copy and paste it into the field provided by the third-party tool or application. Each key is granted a fixed set of permissions that limit what third-party tools can access, and you can delete a key at any time to revoke the permissions granted.


  • Displays IP addresses authorized to access your account.
  • Setup Mobile Authenticator Beta [2]. If someone steals your password [1], they could easily lock you out of your own account and delete your characters. Reduce this risk to your Guild Wars 2 account by enabling two-step verification through the mobile authenticator app. Note: The mobile authenticator replaces e-mail authentication [3] on your account.
