Gifting required 2 step protection?

So, have a friend who plays the game. Was going to buy him 20 days premium to let him see how it is, only for it to hit me with the message that you can’t send gifts to people if they don’t have 2 step protection? Why is this required? I’ve bought stuff for some friends without issues, though they might have had it? Or is this new?

It’s required for security reasons. Also, it’s a good idea to have 2step enabled for your account in general, not just for gifting.

Why does a receiver need to have 2FA?

That was my main concern. I have 2 step, but my friend doesn’t and I’m very confused as to why the person getting the gift needs to have it…
