EA says that since cheats that operate at the kernel level have increased significantly in recent years, it is important to use anti-cheat tools that also operate at the kernel level as the only reliable way to combat this.

This tool works only when the target game is running, and stops working when the game ends. EA says the tool has little impact on game performance. Also, privacy is protected because only the information used for the game is collected through an encryption process.

Additionally, for games that offer both single-player and multiplayer, EA AntiCheat will work during single-player as well.
