It’s time once again to remind everyone that there is only one valid way to get an invite to testing in SWTOR and that is by registering on the official site and waiting for an official invite. Stephen Reid popped onto the forums today to advise people that BioWare has not officially partnered with any other websites to give out testing invites.
If you think you have received an official invite from BioWare, the safest thing to do is: DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS. Simply go to www.swtor.com/tester and log in in with your official SWTOR account. If you have been invited, you will be allowed to log into that page. Easy and safe!

From Stephen Reid:
At this time, there are no websites, anywhere, who are officially partnered with EA or BioWare to ‘give away’ Game Testing invites or ‘Beta Keys’. Any site suggesting otherwise is mistaken.
The only way to get a Game Testing invite (of any kind) at this time is to be signed up to test and to be officially invited by BioWare, via email. As always, to check if you have been invited to test, login to swtor.com/tester/
Please be aware that some sites may ask you to download software in exchange for promised ‘Beta Keys’. This software may be malicious and may damage your PC. You are never required to download anything to be invited to Game Testing – you will only need to download the game client after you are invited, which is only available from SWTOR.com.
