EA Responds To Origin Account Security Concerns

Electronic Arts’ online store Origin has not suffered a breach of its account database, after reports that there was a breach of the system, the publisher has announced.

“We found no indication at this point of a breach of our Origin account database,” an EA representative told PCGamer. “Privacy and security of user account information are of the utmost importance to us. We encourage our players to use Origin user ID and passwords that are unique to their account, and to report any activity they feel may be unauthorized to EA customer support at help.ea.com.”

Writing on Reddit earlier this week, some users reported suspicious behavior on their Origin accounts, including game purchases that they never made. EA confirmed to PCGamer on Tuesday that it was investigating the matter, but its still uncertain how many people were affected.  The store is currently having holiday sale, so make sure you check that out if you’re interested.
