Blizzard Unveils World Of Warcraft Protection Option
A new leyer of security will be added to the World of Warcraft MMO. Blizzard announced it would soon release the Authenticator, a device designed to ensure nobody but you can access your WoW account.
June 26, 2008
The Blizzard Authenticator is an electronic device that generates an unique, valid only once, six-digit security code at the press of a button. The code must be provided along with the account name and password when signing in to the World of Warcraft account linked to it.
The device will be available at the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational, which takes place June 28-29 in Paris, France.
The downside: it will retail for $6.50, making it a rather expensive keychain trincket. More info is available here.
