ROCKSTAR are giving away Gold Bars for Red Dead Redemption 2 and plenty of GTA$ to Grand Theft Auto Online players.

For some time now Rockstar Games has had problems with players Social Club accounts getting hacked.

This isn’t anything new, it’s not like the issues suddenly became heightened with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online at the end of last year.

GTA Online fans have had to deal with this for some time too.

That’s why Rockstar has decided to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Fortnite by introducing some lip-smacking rewards for any fans willing to spend 10 minutes to enable 2 step verification.

For good reason too, because all sorts of unscrupulous people are out there just waiting to nick your all-important bank details and sensitive personal information.

Obviously, the benefit of adding Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a bit of a no-brainer in the first place. It’s adding extra security to help protect your account.

If you want a more detail explanation of how to set up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), you’ll find it further down the page.

Why should you set up Two-Step Verification.

Rockstar has decided to use a carrot to tempt players into sorting our their Two-Factor Authentication with gold bars and GTA $.

So if you secure your Social Club account with Two-step verification and you’ll be rewarded with:

  • 10 Gold Bars in Red Dead Online

  • $500,000 in Grand Theft Auto Online
