This article explains what IP-based login is and what purpose it serves in the Gala Games and Entertainment Ecosystem.
The IP address-based login system allows for an additional layer of security within the Gala Games and Entertainment ecosystem by adding another factor of authentication which is required upon login.
This system passively matches the IP address from the new login attempt against the previously used IP. If the IPs do not match, it will require users to perform an action in order to log in successfully.

Note: If this email is encountered without a login attempt from the legitimate owner of the account, it is highly recommended to reset the password and contact support immediately via this link.
Furthermore the Gala Support Team highly recommends using separate and unique passwords for both your Gala Games and Entertainment account and the associated email address. Please visit the Keeping a Gala Games and Entertainment Account Secure article for more information about this.
