WarCorner: Battle.net Authenticator Comes To Windows 7 Phones

Battle.net players with iPhones or Android devices are able to login securely to their game using a one-time password in addition to their base password to access their account. With the constant changing of the mobile phone market, and a new player in town, some were wondering if the Windows 7 Phone had a big enough user base to warrant an authenticator app. Well Blizzard has made sure that the mobile authenticator is available on all platforms. *Insert sigh of relief here*

If you have a Starcraft II or World of Warcraft account and a Smartphone without the authenticator, you can download your software version here. Players who own a Windows 7 Phone will have to download it from the Marketplace since it doesn't look like they have a download link on the website yet. If you have no idea what I'm talking about or have never heard a story about a friends hacked Warcraft account, I highly suggest you check out the Account Security page on Blizzard's website to get familiar. With the online gaming market increasing at an exponential rate and all the recent security breaches to PC, PS3, Wii and Xbox, it would be in your best interest to get some security into your everyday gaming life.
