Riot Games have pushed a League of Legends client update mere hours before the 10th-anniversary celebration started. It is a possible herald of League of Legends Mobile reveal.

League of Legends client update has brought a few changes, with the first and most obvious one being the new art style. Gone are the days of intricate design that makes things look like they have depth. The new era is all about flat looks things in order to cater to the needs of the mobile gaming industry.

Remaining signed in is the second and arguably more important change. Clicking this option while entering your credentials on the first client screen will make the game skip it on subsequent logins. There are two important security issues introduced with this change that the players should be wary of.

First up, typing the password in without clicking arrow button, that symbolises player's wish to log in, will leave the password unprotected. Anyone else approaching the computer can click the eye button to reveal the password.

The second security concern is when players actually stay logged in. Choosing this option will skip authentication on subsequent logins entirely. If the computer is shared in any capacity, it would be wise to avoid using this option as account sharing is not allowed, as per League of Legends .

They kept League of Legends Mobile info fairly scarce so far but since the client update that accommodates mobile devices came out so close to the event, it is highly likely we will get more info on the iOS and Android version of the game.
