I was trying to get some addon for Firefox to protect myself against keyloggers, I found something useful but it is not so comfortable because everytime I enter on a new site I have to manage which application I want to execute... bla bla bla, annoying!
Then I thought about the Blizzard Authenticator, I read about it when it was released but I didn't look at it so much. I don't want someone to steal my account, I think I need something to protect my account but I'm not sure about the utility of that authenticator.

1) Does any of you have that thing? Does it actually solve the keyloggers problem?

2) I and my brother play with two different accounts, I read you can use a single authenticator on more than one account, do you confirm?

3) Last question: can I remove it from my account in case I don't want to use it anymore?

I wonder what's up if I lose it! However I think I have to buy the mobile authenticator from the Blizzard store because I haven't got any Iphone or any ultimate mobile phone.

Thank you! :mrgreen:

Yes I have one :) It won't stop you getting a keylogger, but it makes breaking in to your account a whole lot harder (time specific)

If you lose it, contact Blizzard Customer Services (maybe Billing). They can remove it for you if you can prove you own the account :D

It's definitely worth getting one. Just keep it near your keyboard like I do :D

I don't have one and don't plan on getting one, although I can see the benefits I just cba! Lol,.

Also have a pretty basic firewall!

My general rule is: always double check web addresses, always visit porn sites using my mobile...... Simples!
