    Will you get some kind of Blizzard Authenticator for D3 ?

    Hey guys,

    2 simple questions:

    1) Will you get some kind of Blizzard Authenticator for D3 ?
    2) If you will get one, will you get the physical Blizzard Authenticator or will you get the mobile application for your cellphone ? (it doesn't seem to be available for Android users, however ?)

    I am asking this because I have never tried the Blizzard Authenticator, but I heard it is strongly recommended for Diablo 3 players to get this. I also heard that all (about 89% I think) WoW players have it because otherwise, they would get their accounts stolen a couple times per year.

    They will force you to buy one by implementing some kind of false Bnet Balance cap etc., for those accounts without. GG.

    1) If they release a Diablo skinned physical one yes
    2) ^ Physical... I don't believe in "smart" phones

    But it does . . . I downloaded the free app about six months or so ago, after my WoW account was hacked. Haven't had a problem since.

    I have one on my phone already. I hadn't played wow in a good 8 months, nor logged into my B.net account and was hacked. Have had one ever since.

    EDIT: Mine is on an android as well.

    No. If someone lands malware on my machine, I'd be happy to find out about it through a lost D3 account. Much better than finding out about it through lost bank / paypal / cc / email (eg, all of the above) information.

    I had a Blizzard one for WoW but it was years old so I bought a Diablo III authenticator.

    I bought one specific for the game however my account was hacked and I dont even own WoW so that made the choice even easier.

    Yes, I got the mobile version for my smartphone. I figured with real money auction house, PayPal connection and my precious toons on there, maybe credit card information I would be stupid not to have it. And when I found out it was free of charge and available for my phone, I happily got it right away. Works really well so far!

    Well when they become more avaiable/reasonably priced, I'll pick one up anyway. If you all know otherwise, please link. ;o

    I paid £8.99 directly from Blizzard, but I guess they were limited edition or something (which I didn't know when I bought it, lucky timing I guess).

    I got one on my phone because I heard it is a requirement if you want to cash out via paypal.

    I have a bad feeling that due to RMAH, unscrupulous people wanting to scam and hack your accounts will be way more than the glory days of D2. I really recommend everyone here to get an authenticator just to be safe and save the headaches.

    In fact if you had already linked your Paypal account to battle.net then it's a non-question you HAVE to get it, or you'll see money drained from your Paypal account someday :S

    Already have an authenticator but I have that thing already since they first came available and it's starting to show signs of use. I will probably get a new one if they release a Diablo themed one.

    That's much more likely to happen from paypal themselves than from any 3rd party.
