For Honor's anti cheat system is settling in

UbiSoft's program of choice for cheat prevention, EasyAntiCheat has already banned close to 400 players and an additional were 70 banned for offensive emblems, harassment and other misconduct.

"All bans, whether temporary or permanent, are applied on an account level, not at the hardware level. We have also been delivering bans on first offense as we take our goals of creating a fair environment very seriously", a blogpost from UbiSoft explains.
