Those planning to play Ranked in Rainbow Six Siege on PC in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region will now have another layer of security to go through, as Rainbow Six Siege 2FA (two-factor authentication) or also known as 2SV (two-step verification).
This was announced by Ubisoft today where the publisher shared the following details:

To make sure you’re prepared, make sure to activate 2SV under the account management section at account.ubisoft.com.
Players can activate 2SV through any of the following methods: (2SV options may differ by region, please check your local support FAQ for options available in your area).
PC players who activate 2SV will also receive the 2SV Thermite weapon skin reward!
