We're happy to announce the release of a new additional security feature for our games, the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator
, an extension of the same concept behind our Blizzard Authenticator
An authenticator generates a one-time password, which you use in addition to an account ID and password to log in to World of Warcraft and other Blizzard Entertainment services. The Battle.net Mobile Authenticator performs this function for the recently launched Battle.net accounts -- only instead of a physical token, the application exists on your mobile phone for easy access.
The Battle.net Mobile Authenticator is now available as a free download for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch from the Apple App Store
. Versions for other mobile phones are also in the works for the future. Please visit the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator FAQ
for more information, or head to the setup page
to get started after you've downloaded the application.
