With respect to accounts being hacked and being looted of everything of value it might be useful if one of the panes in the Xunlai storage chest was password protected. You could store all your most expensive items in it and perhaps allow it to hold cash, say 100k in each slot perhaps.
It would mean that hacked accounts (so long as all the toons weren't deleted) wouldn't need to start from scratch.

I know not being hacked in the first place is best but for those that have been hacked it would have helped.

I know this will never be implemented but I thought it was worth while mentioning the idea just for my own amusement.

it would just be one panel, if you really want to getting 100k isn't very hard.
and, you buy expensive items, to show off right? you can get max armor and a max gold weapon for like 15k, so i don't think it will work, everybody will just use it as a normal storage panel, but it isn't nice for that because you have to enter your password all the time.

i think i you want something to prevent account hacking you will have to start with not let them get in your account, like an extra security question if you log in from another ip then you are using normal

I had a similar idea called 3 part account protection but it was closed because it was a +1 anti-hacking thread.

Anyway I would add to your idea a character lock feature and then...

Already suggested here under the premise of authentication for storage access.
