Enhanced security for World of Warcraft accounts
Posted on 27 June 2008.
Blizzard introduced an optional extra layer of security for World of Warcraft. Designed to attach to a keychain, the lightweight and waterproof Blizzard Authenticator is an electronic device that generates a six-digit security code at the press of a button. This code is unique, valid only once, and active for a limited time; it must be provided along with the account name and password when signing in to the World of Warcraft account linked to it.

This optional security measure will be available at the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational, which takes place June 28-29 in Paris, France. In addition, the Blizzard Authenticator will be made available for purchase via Blizzardís online store in the near future for a cost of $6.50.

Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment said:
Itís important to us that World of Warcraft offers a safe and enjoyable game environment. One aspect of that is helping players avoid account compromise, so weíre pleased to make this additional layer of security available to them.
