Green PC

Security Window

A new Security menu option has been added. Through the Security menu, you can see the list of PCs you have connected from and adjust their PC Security ranks.

Red PC

When you first log in on a PC, it will be registered as a Red PC. The following trade restrictions will be applied:

  • Cash Shop gifting blocked
  • Meso Market usage blocked
  • Maple Auction usage blocked
  • Meso dropping blocked
  • Items will disappear immediately after being dropped
  • 1:1 trades blocked
  • Courier and quick delivery usage blocked
  • Meso Riding usage blocked

The Red PC trade restrictions will not apply to newly created accounts. However, if you rank up to Yellow PC or Green PC, or 30 days have passed since creation, the trade restrictions will begin to apply.

The Red PC trade restrictions will not be applied immediately after the May 21 update but after a certain period of time.

Yellow PC

On a Yellow PC, you can play the game without any trade restrictions. When you are logged in on a Red PC, you can increase the Security Rank gauge in the Security menu by staying logged in and killing monsters. When it reaches 100%, you can rank up to Yellow PC.

The Security Rank gauge has a daily limit that can be acquired. It will rise faster on weekends, at a PC Bang, and within 30 days of creating an account. During thes times, the daily limit will also be increased.

When you are connected to the game on a Yellow PC or Green PC, you can instantly upgrade other registered Red PCs to Yellow PCs, regardless of your Security Rank gauge.

Your PC Security rank will be based on recent logins and monsters killed as of the May 21 update. Therefore, recently used PCs may have partially filled Security Rank gauges or be instantly Yellow PCs.

Green PC

Green PC

On a Green PC, you can play the game without any trade restrictions and use the item lock/unlock features. When you are logged in on a Red or Yellow PC, you can press the Rank Up button in the Security menu to make it a Green PC.

After authenticating, your Security Rank will become a Green PC. However, if you don’t trust the PC you are connected from, you can make it a Green PC only for the current connection.

If you have signed up for Nexon OTP, you can use it to play at any PC or PC Bang as a Green PC.
