Let's take a look at what's next for Jagex Accounts!

Will the Jagex launcher ever get an option to fully exit when I close the window? I don't want it to minimize to the tray, I want it to actually exit. It launched the game, I don't need it anymore.

I'll share this feedback with the team!

Really feel like more account security concerns should’ve come before this. Things like passwords being unable to recognize capital letters

Passwords on Jagex Accounts are not only case-sensitive but also allow the use of special characters, so hopefully, that should help!

Once an account is imported into the jagex account, can you still log into the game via normal runelite? how does this work for mobile?

You'll have to open RuneLite via the Jagex Launcher to play imported characters.

Hi Mod Sarnie. I just posted a tutorial yesterday morning about another (and in my opinion, simpler) way to get the Jagex Launcher working on Steam Deck / Linux. Could you maybe pass it along to the player support team to see if its beneficial to add to the FAQ?


Thanks! We've linked a handy guide from 7ormRS in this article, but I'll pass along your work :) - https://help.jagex.com/hc/en-gb/articles/13413514881937

In January we launched the Closed Beta for Jagex Accounts, which brings with it improved account security. Initially, we limited the Beta to Player Moderators as part of our invite-only 'phased release' approach – but we’re now ready to extend the invitation to more players!

Going to assume this is a dumb question but this works with people who login with usernames?

Yes, although you wouldn't log in via the username once you've linked an account.

With this could i possibly seperate an rs3 character from an osrs character? I want my rs3 character thats on the same log in as my cousins osrs acc. Have not played it in 5 years because of that.

Unfortunately, there are no current plans to change the way characters or membership works.

Very excited for this! Didn't receive an email, unfortunately. Is there any news for the next expansion or potentially the full release?

We'll look to update the newspost & potentially more socials when a new batch is selected.

Any chance you can share if there have been discussions regarding a native Linux package?

Currently, there are no plans to support Linux. I can't say if that will be different in the future.

I'm a bit out of the loop so sorry if this has already been solved or mentioned in a previous explanation. Will this fix the problem that, if a malicious actor knows your email ID used to log in to RS, they can effectively stop you from ever logging in by spamming login attempts to freeze your account?

This issue should already be solved by switching to the Launcher and anyone that continues to have that problem should switch to the Jagex Launcher even if they aren't eligible for a Jagex Account yet to prevent that issue.
